Owners of the Joint Admission Matriculation Board [JAMB] Accredited Computer Based Test Centers has advised applicants of the JAMB UTME to strictly follow the stipulated guidelines by JAMB for easy registration.
Okonkwo, also the Head, ICT, Digital Bridge Institute, an accredited CBT centre in Jabi, Abuja, gave the advice in an interview in Abuja on Friday.
He said that major key requirement for registration includes creating JAMB profile
using candidate’s valid email address by signing into: www.jamb.org.ng/efacility/
Okonkwo said the next step was to pay N5, 500 JAMB fees at a bank; collect a PIN
after payment; proceed to the CBT centre and pay N700 for registration to a designated account number.
He said thereafter applicants should return to the centre with the bank PIN and N700 payment teller to complete registration.
Okonkwo said some applicants had, however, failed to follow these guidelines which had caused some delay with their registration.
He said the centre was at hand to help some of these students to create an email profile at no cost and referred them to JAMB for issue beyond their control.
Okonkwo said the centre had registered no fewer than 1,000 applicants since the registration commenced on Monday.
Commenting on the speed of the internet, he described it as very fast, adding that JAMB had provided a dedicated router at the centre which was connected straight to their system.
A candidate, Master Ugochukwu Emmanuel, told NAN that the registration was very smooth and he was able to register in five minutes as a result of his previous experience.
“I think this year’s registration is easier and more understandable because of the process of registration and people that attended to us made the whole exercise easier,” he said.
He commended JAMB for the new innovations, saying it was a lot better than last year.
In a similar development at another centre, Global Distant Learning Institute, Central Area, Abuja, where the scenario was quite different as NAN observed a slow pace with the registration.
