Can Another Person Help Me Register UTME/DE?

JAMB UTME/DE registration Requires Applicants' Presence

A father recently came to my office with his boy. They both came to buy/vend UTME PIN and seek advice on which schools, courses, and subject combinations to go for.

In the end, the father asked, "Can I just go to the CBT centre and register him without him being there? The man wanted to know if another person can help the boy register UTME. Does JAMB allow registration for UTME/DE by proxy? Must you be present for UTME/DE registration before you can apply?

This is what this short post will address.

JAMB UTME/DE Registration Requires Applicants' Presence

You have to go to CBT centres by yourself for UTME/DE registration. You can’t send your friend, brother, sister or parent to handle JAMB registration for you.

This doesn't mean your relatives can’t go to the CBT centre with you. They are just not needed for the registration.

Why Can’t Another Person Register UTME for You?

UTME/DE registration involves not only the filling of an online form, but candidates’ live passport photos must also be taken at the points of the registrations. Also, your fingerprints (biometrics) must be captured at the same venue.

Having said that, do you think another person’s photo and fingers should be taken on your behalf? Even if you want that, it’s illegal and not allowed.

Another Person Can Buy UTME/DE PIN for You

It’s already established that you can’t be helped to register UTME. Your presence is needed. However, it’s possible for your friend, brother, sister or teacher to help you buy JAMB form (ePIN) online, through the bank or any vending centre.

In this case, all that the person needs from you are:
  1. Your JAMB profile code; which you must have collected after sending YOUR FULL NAMES to 55019 and #50 debited on your line.
  2. Your working email

With these details, he can, on your behalf, approach any PIN vending centre – NIPOST, cafĂ©, bank, CBT centre, etc. Only this profile code will be used to sell the PIN to your proxy.

Then, you (the real owner) can now take it to the nearest CBT centre for registration.
