The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board have set up a new process for the registration of Jamb UTME 2021. The JAMB E-Pin is to be used to register for the JAMB UTME Examination. It was established to help fight fraud in the Jamb UTME Examination.


JAMB E-Pin was not created to create hardship for the candidates but to help make their registration easy. The board has changed the process of the JAMB UTME registration to reduce the stress candidates pass through. Before now JAMB has been using the scratch card that was sold in the Banks and all registration is done in the cybercafé, of the candidate’s choice.


E-Pin is a set of security codes for payment of secured transactions done for a purpose. The E-Pin is generated from software called MLM software.


The Board has advised all candidates to make sure they stay calm about the changes in the JAMB registration. This process will help reduce stress for all candidates who wish to register for the JAMB 2021 UTME Examination.
