Various Candidates in the North who wish to apply for the 2017 JAMB UTME Registration has lamented on various problems they encounter before being registered for the exam. They have described the ongoing registration process as very slow, cumbersome, expensive and stressful and calls for the extension of the registration deadline.

Most candidates who granted interview to the Nigerian News Agency in Kaduna and Kano complained bitterly and how dissatisfied they are with the current registration methods.

Below are the complains made by some of the students:

"You would first open a personal profile in JAMB websites using an active personal e-mail address, proceed to the bank, pay for the form, get a Personal Identification Number (PIN) and then proceed to the CBT centre, pay for registration fee and be captured.
“But I tell you, it is not as easy as it sounds, because it takes days for one to get his PIN.
“In Jaiz Bank for example, where I paid for the form, it took five days before I got my PIN and I was going there every day.
Emmanuel Augustine told NAN at JAMB office in Kaduna that he was yet to complete his registration for the examination, one week after he started the process.

“You can see the crowd; I was here since 6am, but I am not still sure if I will get registered today, ‘Augustine said.

Another candidate, Victor Jacob, said it took him two weeks, from the day of the commencement of the registration till March 31 to get registered.
“Even at that, I am asked to return on Monday for thumb print.
“Before coming to JAMB office, I was going to Dembo International School, but the crowd is huge, I spent days without making progress.
“From there, I went to another centre in Kakuri and the story was the same.
“We are suffering, and we spend huge amount of money on transport and feeding everyday for the past two weeks for a registeration that is not supposed to take more than 30 minutes using the old system,” he said.

Similarly, Adamu Alhassan, said he paid for the JAMB form at Zenith Bank in Zaria, last week Monday, but could not get his PIN, as such was unable to proceed with the registration processes.

“Could you believe that I have been going back to the bank everyday only for the officials to tell me today that I have to come to JAMB office to get my PIN and I have been here since 9:30 but no one attended to me, “Alhassan said.

On her part, Rebecca Jatau, revealed that café owners have taken advantage of the cumbersome process to exploit prospective candidates.

According to her, some café owners are collecting from N500 and above to open e-mail and personal profile for prospective candidates.
