Sales of JAMB UTME form, Postponement and Confusions

Official JAMB logo
There’s a need to get this piece before you because of the confusion sounding the sales of 2019/2020 UTME form.

I will carefully handle some issues so that I won’t add salt to your injuries.

UTME form Was Earlier Slated to be On Sales in December

Yes, we all heard that.

Some sources had it earlier that the board would start selling the admission forms by December. This came after JAMB disowned the information that the form was already on sales on November 7 through her official Twitter handle.

Then, we were all looking up to a day in December for the form.

But the story changed.

Why Did JAMB postponed the sales of the form?

I asked the same question. And here was the answer I got.

The board took to her Twitter handle on December 4, to affirm that the form would be on sales by January.



News also had it that JAMB – through the Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin said, “the board was not commencing sales of the forms until January 2019”

In the meantime, I think we now know how long we have to wait for the form to be out if things remain as planned.

Is JAMB confused about sales of Forms?

Well, no.

In fact, the earlier information about the time-table and my analysis (when I compared it with last year) were both correct.

Here is why…

While addressing the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Dr. Fabian said that, the board had thought of starting the sales in December but dropped the idea following Federal Government’s reduction in the registration fee with effect from January 2019.
That’s why I agreed with the unofficial time-table that I got earlier in the day. The timetable stated that the sales of the form will begin Thursday, December 6, 2018.

What was not clear was why the reduction in price caused a delay in the sales of form?

Well, there are lots of logistics involved in the sales of forms like this. All stakeholders including banks, post offices, sales agents, CBT centres etc will have to be called for resolutions on some terms before things can be done right.

Final Conclusions and Points taken from JAMB Officials

  1. Sales of form now begins January. No specific date announced yet. Subscribe to this blog to know immediately the form is out.
  2. Forms will be on sales for six weeks. The board has said the window period will be for six weeks.
  3. Prospective candidates should note this period in order not to fall prey to fraudsters
  4. The Board would comply with the directive on the reduction of the registration cost.
