UTME 2012 Yourself Online
registration for JAMB UTME is
very simple, although a few
complexities are involved.

However, if you have some
basic computer skills you will be
able to register yourself with
little difficulty. If you already
know how to browse the
internet using tools like Yahoo
mail, Gmail, or Facebook, then
registering for JAMB UTME will
probably be a piece of cake for
you. However, if you are not
computer literate it may be quite
challenging. But that does not
mean you should give it out to a
consultant to do for you. The
fact is that you can register for
JAMB UTME yourself. However,
the need for fingerprint scanner
may create some difficulty. You
have to probably look for a
cyber cafe with fingerprint
scanners. You can use such a
cafe to signup for your UTME
account. You can then logout
and continue the registration
yourself another time or you
can complete it at the internet
cafe. Note that the JAMB UTME
registration portal requires that
the Java Runtime Environment
be installed on your computer.
Registering yourself for UTME
2012 online may be a great
opportunity to become
computer literate, so don't miss
it. If you must give out your
Jamb UTME registration to
another person, use a friend that
is computer literate and learn
from him/her. Registering
yourself for JAMB UTME may also
be challenging because of slow
internet connections at cyber
cafes as well as the capacity of
the JAMB UTME registration
portal. We hope JAMB have taken
care of the high level of load
expected during this period.

Some cyber cafes may block
access to JAMB UTME e-
registration portal from their
cafe so that you pay them for
your UTME registration. In such a
situation, you are advised to
look for a cyber cafe that does
not offer JAMB UTME services.
However, if it is impossible to
register for Jamb UTME yourself,
then you can give it out to a
consultant or to the cyber cafe,
but don't just give out your
Jamb UTME registration to a
consultant without first trying to
register yourself. If you
outsource your JAMB UTME
registration to a consultant or
cyber cafe, make sure you
monitor him/ her to ensure that
your data is properly entered.

Most people with registration
problems in JAMB UTME are
usually those who give it out to
consultants without proper
monitoring. If you find the JAMB
UTME portal too slow try on
Sundays or at Night when traffic
is minimal. If you have your
own internet connection, you
can always access the JAMB
UTME portal at anytime. Note
about the fingerprint scanner
JAMB UTME 2012 registration
requires fingerprint scan.
Fingerprint derived from the
registration process may be
used for gaining access to
examination hall on examination
date. If this the case, prospective
candidates for JAMB UTME 2012,
should take it very serious. Make
sure your left and right thumb
fingerprint are carefully scanned
to avoid surprises and
disappointments on UTME 2012
examination date. Make sure the
biometric scanner and your
hands are clean when taking the
