What is JAMB Regularization, Is it Important?
This is an exercise by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board to provide solutions to issues involved in the students’ admissions. These issues may likely hinder such candidates from furthering their studies or proceed to NYSC. And this is the medium through which JAMB comes in to help.
How does this work out?
Lets considers this scenario; Two students.
Student A: He/she was given admission to a polytechnic through the daily part-time program. This Daily Part Time program doesn’t require UTME results from applicants. Hence, admitted candidates for such programs can skip UTME.
Student B: He/She was given admission through the pre-NCE program. Such a student moves to 100 level of his course and completes her NCE. All these he does without writing UTME.
Here is where jamb regularization help arises!
The two students above, after completing their ND or NCE program, now want to proceed to universities through JAMB direct entry form.
Direct entry applicants don’t require writing UTME though, yet they need to pass through JAMB as the body in charge of Nigeria admission administration.
they will have to register for JAMB regularization to:
- provide their information for JAMB such that they can be recognized as students being given admission through JAMB
- re-activate their details with JAMB (if any)
- be given an assigned JAMB registration number which they will need to do things like printing of JAMB admission letter (for future reference), NYSC mobilization purpose after their degree, etc.
Who Must Do JAMB Regularization?
- Direct Entry applicants – These students who had been given admission to their previous programs without JAMB or fall to any of the cases above will be required to do JAMB regularization before they proceed to JAMB CBT center for their direct entry form application.
- HND Students: There two conditions for which HND students can be asked to do it.
- First, before being given HND admission, the school asks you to do it in order not to delay you for NYSC because you will need your JAMB registration number for NYSC.
- Second, some schools may wait till you’re graduated and ask you to do regularization in order to be mobilized for national service.
