“Students would generate a PIN number for themselves from their phone or computers before registering for examinations,” he said.
The registrar who was represented by one of his officials, Dr. Yusuf Lawal said bottlenecks associated with the scratch cards and the costs had denied students, most especially those from poor backgrounds access to higher institutions of learning.

This is part of the change coming up in JAMB; we do not want a situation where cost of education would be beyond the reach of the poor.

He also challenged NASU to get involved in the ownership of Computer-Based Testing Centres, saying those who own the centres are businessmen merely exploiting students.

JAMB would not support a situation where banks and vendors hoard the cards, only to sell them at a higher price,” he concluded.

Recall that the registrar of the JAMB, Oloyede stated on Friday, September 16, that all admissions to universities, polytechnics and colleges of education should end at the stipulated time. 

The professor informed that schools which are yet to update the requirements for the 2017 brochure should do so quickly.


Adding that students seeking admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria have been given a lifeline until Wednesday, November 30, 2016.
