Is it true that candidates without NIN will not register JAMB in 2022

Yes and below are the reasons.

Dr Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB’s Head of Information, said that the NIN would guard all forms of infractions.

He also advised candidates who had registered and acquired the NIN before attaining the age of 16 to update their NIN registration status before proceeding for the UTME registration.

“If a candidate has NIN but has misplaced the number, he/she can retrieve the NIN by either going to any NIMC office/its licensed agents or dialing a code on the SIM number earlier used to register for the NIN.

“If he/she lost the SIM number used for the NIN registration, such a candidate should visit the nearest NIMC centre or any of its licensed agents.

“Candidate’s name, as arranged on the NIMC data base, would be same on JAMB data after registration.

“If any candidate has complaints of name arrangement such a candidate should first rectify such issue with NIMC before proceeding for registration,” he added.

Why did JAMB make NIN compulsory

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that only candidates with National Identification Number (NIN) will be allowed to register for 2021 UTME.

The Head of Information of JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, at a one-day capacity building workshop organized by the National Examination Council (NECO) for education correspondents in Keffi on Friday disclosed it.

According to him, experience has shown that malpractice in the conduct of public examination, especially the UTME, actually begins with the registration exercise, and the introduction of NIN for registration was aimed at purging the UTME registration process and eliminating identity theft.

He added that the board was ready to go to any length to enforce biometric verification.

He promised that the CBT exercise will only be conducted in centres owned and operated by the schools hosting them, and would no longer be conducted in school-based centres operated by private individuals.

Owing to the fact that these privately run centres have proved to be in cahoots with fraudsters to perpetrate malpractice.

To emphasize the depth of registration fraud, he disclosed that a particular candidate registered a record 222 times, while some registered 46 and others 56 times or more, forcing the exam body to delay the release of its results till after 2022.

Concerning complaints on the conduct of the 2022 UTME by candidates and parents, he said the complaints received so far, were because the board was more disposed to disclose what is happening now than ever.

The board has also disclosed that it would no longer need to capture the biometrics of candidates during UTME registration next year as the information of candidates required by the board would be uploaded from the data captured by the NIMC for registration.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.

Oleme rhoda August 23, 2020 - 6:34 am

Only our address and everything they scan from us during registration isnt okay?

na only them know what they use our nin to do!

Call me Musa August 21, 2020 - 11:14 am

Jamb should have made it non-mandatory because most candidates that wish to apply for jamb in next year have not got id card.

Abdulrazaq Yahaya August 21, 2020 - 12:39 pm

Dear Musa, thank you for your suggestion.

However, candidates who will register for JAMB will not need to be captured and asked for their Bio data henceforth.

What they will do is just input their national ID number, then their information on NIMC website would be fetched automatically.
Have you understood? Please do reply to this if you haven’t.

Miss Cysylia August 20, 2020 - 6:36 pm
