Beginning yesterday, February 15, 2023, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has extended the 2023 UTME registration period by one week.

“The UTME registration would end on Wednesday, February 22, 2023, while the sale of ePINs would end on Monday, February 20, 2023.
“Recall that in line with the Board’s 2023 Schedule of Activities, as earlier released, the closing date for the sale of both the ePINs and the 2023 UTME application documents was slated for Tuesday, 14th February, 2023.

“At the close of the sale of ePINs on Tuesday, 14th February, 2023, 1,527,068 candidates had succesfully registered for the 2023 UTME exercise inclusive of the 168,748, who indicated their interest to take the Mock-UTME,”JAMB said.
It was added that it should be noted that the Board had increased its capacity to register up to 100,000 candidates per day based on its projections.

“With this, all interested candidates could be registered in a matter of days. However, fewer than 50,000 candidates—less than the installed registration capacity—showed up for registration.

Surprisingly, the pace picked up significantly in the final two days before the deadline, with more than 100,000 candidates registering daily.
“Furthermore, the Board, as a responsive and proactive agency, took cognisance of the reports from across the country indicating some difficulties being faced by many Nigerians in using their electronic channels to purchase the ePINs or obtain cash readily within the stipulated period.” It has, as a result, granted this extension to ensure that all candidates who desire to register for the 2023 UTME are given the opportunity to do so, especially when the existing deadline for registering is approaching.
