JAMB to Banks: don’t sell UTME forms above N3,500

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has warned financial institutions not to sell the 2021 unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) forms (ePin) above the N3, 500 fees to candidates.

JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, gave the warning on Tuesday at a meeting with representatives of financial institutions ahead of the sales of ePins which will start in April.

He said that candidates are expected to pay financial institutions N3, 500 for ePin and N500 for the books they will use for the examination, totalling N4,000.

He, therefore, warned that any financial institution caught selling the ePin above the stipulated price will be de-listed and prosecuted.

The JAMB Registrar also asked the institutions to ensure that all ePins are transferred electronically to the candidates to avoid hardship on them.
