JAMB (Joint Admission and Matriculation Board) has become quite popular in Nigeria as it is the body tasked with conducting the UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Exam) for all intending applicants. The UTME serves as a yardstick for admission into tertiary institutions and is required for admission into universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education in Nigeria. The exam is usually held in March, and the exam process can be quite stressful, from preparing for the exam to registering for it. One critical part of the registration process is the printing of the JAMB Slip. This document contains crucial information about the candidate and the exam in question; hence it is vital to keep a copy safe. However, in some cases, candidates misplace their slip or fail to print it during registration in which case it becomes necessary to reprint the slip. In this article, we will outline the various steps involved in reprinting the JAMB Slip.
First, candidates are to log on to the official JAMB website at www.jamb.gov.ng. Once the site is open, locate the area on the page tagged “e-Facility,” click on it and wait for the page to load. This page requires the candidate to input their JAMB e-mail address and password to log in. Once logged in, candidates will see several options, including “Print Slip.”
After clicking on the “Print Slip” option, candidates will be asked to enter their ten-digit registration number, which was assigned to them after registration. Please ensure you do not make errors and ensure that the number you entered is correct. Also, ensure that you select the year of the exam and the exam type you are interested in (i.e., UTME Or Direct Entry). Once these details have been correctly filed, click on the “Print” icon to access your information.
It is also essential to note that JAMB Slip Reprinting begins two weeks before the examination date, so it is advisable to stay updated on the exam date. Also, remember that the slip serves as your official invitation letter to the examination center, and as such, it is vital that candidates print it in advance.
Furthermore, it is crucial to have access to a printer and the internet while printing out the JAMB Slip. This process can be completed without much stress; however, it is advisable to use a personal computer for the best results. After printing the JAMB Slip, candidates are to read through the information carefully; this helps to confirm the correct spelling of the candidate’s name, the examination’s date, time and location. Any mistake noticed on the printout should be reported to JAMB immediately. By following these simple instructions, aspiring UTME candidates or those preparing for direct entry can avoid unnecessary stress and print out their JAMB Slip with ease.
In addition to the above, JAMB candidates must take note of the following:
1. JAMB Slip reprinting is mandatory, as failure to present the slip at the examination center can disqualify the candidate. Candidates are, therefore, advised to print their slips via the official JAMB website.
2. The use of a vibrant color is recommended for printing the JAMB Slip, as this will make it easy to read under any lighting condition.
3. Candidates have to print out two copies of the JAMB Slip, which should be kept in separate safe places. One should be kept for personal use, while the other copy is to be submitted at the examination center on the day of the examination.
4. Candidates are to arrive at the examination center two hours before the examination time so that they can settle down and properly prepare for the examination. Please take note of nearby places for accommodation as candidates coming from far locations may be required to come to the examination center the previous day.
In conclusion, the JAMB Slip is a crucial step in the UTME planning process, and it is vital to have it well; it contains vital information that can be used to access the examination center on the fixed date. Candidates are advised to take their printing process seriously and to follow the simple instructions outlined in this article to avoid stories that touch.
Finally, candidates should ensure they get all necessary materials needed for the examination, which includes identification documents, original and photocopies of printouts and other requirements. This will help to make the examination process seamless and hassle-free.
