Mistakes you should avoid during JAMB 2019 registration

Any mistake you make during JAMB registration is capable of totally jeopardising your success in JAMB examination. Thus, it is important to have each of the mistakes highlighted below at the back of your mind, so you will not fall victim of them.

And when you choose the wrong JAMB subject combination for your course, it is most probable that you won’t be offered admission to study that course in Nigeria. If you are searching for the correct JAMB subject combination for your course, read my article on that here.

Using an invalid Email:

I have already emphasized on this before. If you use an invalid Email to register for JAMB 2019 examination, you are as good as not registering because, you will not be able to get all the information JAMB may send to you. I advise that you make sure your Email is active before using it.

Using wrong information to register for JAMB examination:

Believe me, you don’t want to make this mistake. JAMB is becoming strict everyday. They want to make sure that candidates are not impersonated by any means. Last year, some candidates where not offered admission because, they had a wrong Date of birth used in during their registration. I strongly advice you to please use correct information when registering for JAMB examination.

Mistake in choosing institution during JAMB registration:

Well, this is not a big problem. JAMB recently stated that candidates are allowed to used to choose any institution as their first choice, second choice, third choice or even their last choice. This is to let you know that you do not have a limited number of universities to choose in the four choices available to you.
