2020/2021 JAMB FORM SALES AND REGISTRATION DATE

It's another time of the year to ask when the next JAMB UTME form will be out. Admission seekers need to know when the form will be on sales. This is the reason behind this post.

First, you must know that JAMB has decided and announced the closing time for the last admission and all schools must comply with that closing date.

How to Obtain JAMB form for 2020?

  1. JAMB DE/DE form is now on sales starting from January 13 to February 17, 2020.
  2. Each candidate must have a personal email address and mobile phone number. If you'd done UTME before, if you can, I advise you use email and phone number different from the one used last.
  3. Each candidate is to use his/her functional and valid personal email address. The system would reject at the point of registration any already used e-mail address. 
  4. Each candidate must personally create a JAMB profile on the JAMB portal through JAMB Mobile App available on Android, Windows and iOS platforms OR visit a Bank, NIPOST to create his/her JAMB profile on the JAMB portal: www.jamb.org.ng. Name, date of birth, personal email address and place of origin are required to create the profile. 
  5.  A link to the eBrochure and eSyllabus will be automatically sent to your email address.
