2024 UTME: JAMB Personally Explains Exams Candidate Can Correct Their Details

UTME 2024: A comprehensive guide to enrolling in the JAMB DE exam

JAMB has asked UTME and DE applicants with anomalies in their O’level results to make the necessary changes before enrolling for the exam.

The examination body said that impacted students could either make the change on the NIMC portal or go to WAEC.

JAMB said this while addressing ‘applicants’ on social media questions concerning the exams.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has stated that candidates taking the 2024 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) examinations will be unable to correct their names, dates of birth, and other personal details on its platform if they do not match the credentials.

The examination board asked applicants to make the necessary changes on the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) platforms or visit the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to verify that the information on their O’Level matches that on their NIN before enrolling for the UTME and DE.

JAMB sent a tweet in response to a DE candidate’s claim that the number of names on his O’Level did not match those on his NIN or statement of results.

The candidate asked:

“@JAMBHQ, please, sir, I want to ask if my DE registration was successful. Three names were used on my NIN, and my statement of the result, but two names were used on my O’level certificate. Though I’ve done my affidavit, I’m using the three names, not two.”

JAMB, in its response, said:

“JAMB reckons with your details on the NIMC platform, not an affidavit. If the details on your

O’level certificate don’t tally with the one with the NIMC, the system will automatically reject it. It

will be advisable to do the needful before approaching the registration desk.”
