Jamb 2020 Requirements – The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has finally revealed its requirements for this year’s exams 2020
The spokesperson in the person of Dr. Fabian Benjamin stated that the aim of Jamb, is to ensure biometric and other details are captured towards curbing examination malpractices.
Candidates are to note that during the 2020 registration exercise, Jamb will be using the National Number (NIN) generated after a successful registration with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
Note, this will include the capturing of biometric and other important details needed for the registration of all prospective candidates.
Candidates are advised most importantly to register as Jamb will no longer be responsible for the capturing of candidates’ biometrics ahead of the examination, as all details needed will be uploaded from the data captured by the NIMC.
Jamb Registration 2020 Requirements | When Will Jamb Form Be Out For 2020
To complete the registration, here are the requirements you must meet;
- JAMB ePIN registration payment
- Personal e-mail address and mobile phone number
- NIN (National Identification Number). This is very important, as the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said it will no longer register candidates who do not have the National Identity Number (NIN)for the upcoming Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Thus, to participate in the JAMB UTME 2020 exams, you must have completed the National Identification Number (NIN) registration either online or offline.
