Degree no longer guarantee for jobs but relevant skills— JAMB registrar

Candidates preparing for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) organized by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) must pay more to register.

JAMB has adjusted the registration fees for candidates writing the practice and the main examinations by 15%.

Under the new fee structure, candidates who choose to take the practice exam will now be required to pay ₦7,700, a slight jump from the previous fees of ₦6,700, while candidates who will not write the mock but only the main examination will pay an extra ₦500, so instead of ₦5,700, candidates will pay ₦6,200.

The board also disclosed that the registration window for Direct Entry (DE) applicants will open on February 28, 2024 and close on March 28, 2024.

JAMB stressed the importance of candidates staying alert for official registration announcements and UTME guidelines so they can register seamlessly.

This involves regularly checking the board’s website and other communication channels for updates.
