The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) wish to inform all eligible candidates for its 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that they can now purchase the pin for registration using the Remita mode.
The Head of Information of JAMB, Dr Fabian who made this know to newsmen asserted that this development is due to the challenges faced by candidates in acquiring the ePIN form banks and NIPOST.
“We appreciate the fact that the sales of the UTME for 2017 which is hitherto set to last for six has been reduced to one month. “This was done in the interest of the candidates as it was to ensure that the challenges candidates are going through are resolved.
“To further cushion the effect of these challenges, we have decided to bring the Remitta mode on board. “Candidates can now purchase the pin for registration from the comfort of their homes.
“So, aside the banks and NIPOST, candidates can now purchase the pins through Remita,’’ Benjamin said in a statement.
The statement further advised candidates not to panic as every eligible candidate desirous of registering will do so before the closing date of April 19.
