JAMB makes NIN compulsory ahead of 2022 UTME
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has asked all prospective candidates for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) to acquire their National Identification Numbers (NIN) ahead of the exercise.
The board stated this on Monday in its weekly bulletin released by the Office of the Registrar in Abuja.
JAMB said that it would soon start the sale of application documents and registration for the 2022 UTME and Direct Entry (DE).
“The board, is at the moment, engaging its core functionaries in a series of intensive training to ensure that once the date is announced, the stage would have been set for yet another hitch-free exercise.
“The release of this information is in line with the board’s firm determination to ensure that candidates who are desirous of enrolling are ready and prepared.
“Similarly, it is expected to serve as a wake-up call to all who may want to register, to first obtain their NIN, a major prerequisite for the UTME registration.
“For those who may want to obtain any of the two application documents, they are advised to get their NIN and also familiarise themselves with the board’s Integrated Brochure and Syllabus System (IBASS).
“It will give them an idea of the course requirements and the syllabus they are expected to cover for the examination,” the board said.
