JAMB Warns Banks Not To Sell 2021 UTME Forms Above The Price

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned banks not to sell the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) forms (e-Pins) above the N3,500 fee to candidates.

Candidates are expected to pay N3,500 for e-Pins and N500 for the novel they will use for the examination, totaling N4,000.

The board also asked the institutions to ensure that all e-Pins are transferred electronically to the candidates to avoid hardship on them.

The board said it will not accept handwritten e-Pins from any banks in order to avoid mistakes during the process of writing it.

Banks are expected to get 30,000 e-Pins from the board while microfinance banks and other payment platforms will receive 10,000 e-Pins through the board.

Registrar of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, said this during a meeting with representatives of financial institutions ahead of the sales of e-Pins which will start next month.

Oloyede warned that any financial institution caught selling the e-Pin above the stipulated price will be de-listed and prosecuted.
