EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has insisted that all prospective candidates for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will be required to acquire their National Identification Number (NIN) ahead of the 2022 exercise.

The board stated this on Monday in its weekly bulletin released by the Office of the Registrar in Abuja.

This is coming amidst complaints from parents and candidates during the 2021 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination (UTME) over the introduction of the National Identification Number (NIN) in the examination registration process.

JAMB said that it would soon start the sale of application documents and registration for the 2022 UTME and Direct Entry.

“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.
