JAMB Portal: JAMB 2021/2021 Registration Form
Currently, the news in every media is that the official JAMB Portal will be available to prospective JAMB candidates on the 12th of February, 2021.
Also, candidates cannot register for JAMB on any platform apart from the Official JAMB Registration Portal. Why is this so?
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, JAMB, reserves legal rights to full cognizance of every Entrance Examination into Public Universities in Nigeria.
Since its inception, JAMB continues to design and monitor the annual JAMB Portal for Registration. This also implies that you cannot hope to bypass the regular registration process on the portal.
Leading up to the exam date, the JAMB Registrar, Is-Shaq Olanrewaju Oloyede, tells JAMB Candidates that the form will be out soon. He further encourages them to seek JAMB Updates on the Board’s Official Website.
