You can proceed to register Immediately it is confirmed that Jamb registration has begun and the exam date fully decided. Now, you may be wondering:

1. Have A Valid Email address:

This is the first and basic step you need to kick start Jamb 2020/2021 registration. In a lay man’s word, email is the address you can use to get messages online.

It is very easy to create an email account. An email could be Google mail (Gmail), Yahoo mail, etc. I will recommend Gmail for you. It is very easy to create and will help you get personalised results when you search for things on Google.Now, you may be asking, how do I create a valid Gmail account? Like I said earlier, it is very simple. All you need to do is, enter your details in the registration page. Please, do not use slang or street name as your email. Let your real name and surname appear in your email address.

2. Create a Jamb Profile:

The very first and most important step in Jamb 2020/2021 registration is to create Jamb profile. It is very compulsory for you to register your profile before obtaining Jamb 2020 Registration Form. Jamb profile or account is very important, no student register’s Jamb except through it. You can click here to create a Jamb profile

Apart from Jamb registration, you need the Jamb profile for Jamb online result checking, Admission status check, Admission letter printing, Accessing Jamb caps and so on

In our time, it was Cybercafes. Am sorry, you never enjoyed that experience. It is not my fault anyway. Right now, you can only register Jamb in approved CBT centres.

Jamb released the list of accredited CBT centres recently. I have compiled the list and made it available for you in PDF. You can download and go through them to decide the most convenient one for you.

    e-brochure showing guidelines on admission detailing list of tertiary institutions and available programmes of study.
     Syllabus (e-syllabus) for the examination.
    Step by step guide on completion of the application form.

Give them Accurate Details:

So many students lost admission last year because of mistakes in the details to supplied to Jamb and school of choice.

I am begging you in the name of God, do not supply details that will land you into trouble. Check your documents and make sure that there is concord between the subject and predicate.

Also, make sure your subject combinations is accurate before you proceed.

Optional Mock Examination

As was done last year, the Board will also conduct a mock examination in all the accredited CBT centres to prepare and familiarise INTERESTED Candidates with the CBT environment. Interested candidates are advised to indicate their interest in the mock examination during 2020 Jamb registration.
