Final Thoughts: Remember, success in the UTME is not achieved overnight. It takes time, dedication, and consistent practice.

Meanwhile, Mr. Olugbenga Akintola, the Acting Director of the Ibadan Zonal Office of JAMB, visited various CBT centers in Ibadan to check how the 2024 registration process is going. He reminded both the candidates and the CBT centers about the importance of following JAMB’s instructions.

Specifically, he emphasized the need to verify each candidate’s identity using their profile codes and ePINs received on their mobile phones before registering them. This is to prevent issues like group registrations and mismatched data.

JAMB had previously instructed all candidates for the 2024 UTME to show their profile codes and e-PINs, obtained from JAMB’s USSD code 55019 or 66019, on their mobile phones during registration.

This measure aims to avoid mistakes in candidates’ information, such as names, date of birth, and state/local government of origin. In the past, some schools, due to lack of awareness or carelessness, mixed up candidates’ details, leading to the candidates facing difficulties in correcting their data, and in many cases, these correction requests were not approved.
