So JAMB 2019 registration officially kicked off on 10th January, 2019. But, how many people have registered so far? Are there challenges and delays?
Yes. There has been slow pace in registration since JAMB made this year’s UTME registration official.
Here are some of the things I have observed.
Who will register first
Some people don’t want to be the very first set of candidates that registers for JAMB. This is a common thing with this kind of registration, except for NYSC where most prospective corps members strive to be among the first to register and secure the states of their choice.
But in the case of JAMB registration this year, some people would rather avoid the first and second day of the registration.
They would rather sit on the corner and wait for the first set of people to register and tell them about possible technical issues, mistakes, etc.
There is no better way to learn than from other people’s mistakes or problems!
If you fall into this category, well, just make sure you don’t over do it. Make sure to still register on tome and focus on preparing for the exam.
Doesn’t know required subjects combination
This is yet another thing that is delaying some 2019 JAMB candidates.
Some JAMBites don’t know what subjects are required for the courses they want to choose during JAMB registration. Hence, they need to figure that out first to avoid costly mistakes.
Please, if you are among such JAMB students, help yourself with this JAMB brochure.
Oh yeah! The so called JAMB runs.
Some candidates don’t want to register for JAMB yet because they are looking for JAMB runs agents that will help them with “expo” during the exam.
Please, if you are among them that are looking for such “agents”, then check this out: JAMB runs – be wary.
ePIN not available
Some candidates’ delay is as a result of delay in obtaining ePIN required for online registration.
Recall that in the procedure to get the ePIN, candidate has to proceed to any of the designated banks to
Other personal issues
Of course, personal issues will always arise that is still holding some people from registering for this year’s UTME.
From money to health, new year holiday which is still ongoing for some people, there is always that personal issue.
Whatever your case may be, make sure to complete your JAMB registration before the deadline.
