It may be obvious sometimes to ask what are the next things after registering for UTME/DE.

Candidates may want to know what should be the next activities after they’re are certain they’d done their JAMB registration. Here is How to Know If My JAMB Registration Was Done Well?

And of course, registering JAMB is one thing, activities that follow are as well important.

This post will be showing you want should be the next activities after registering JAMB and take you through – to the time of gaining admission eventually.

What to Expect After Registering Your JAMB UTME/DE

Below is the list of after-JAMB-registration activities every applicant should be set for.

1. Preparation For and Writing Mock

If you’d shown interest in participating in JAMB Mock during the JAMB registration and before the Mock registration deadline, you should be on the lookout for the date for your mock.

JAMB might have announced a particular date for the mock before now. Yet, it’s not uncommon for the board to postpone the date.

In the same vein, just as it’s important for you to prepare for the main exams, you have to prepare for the mock too. Your performance here may not mean anything significant for the UTME performance (as the score is never added to UTME). Yet, it’s the right basis to measure how well you’ve read and it may give you hope for the main exam.

2. Follow Up Changes in Exam Schedule

As noted earlier, JAMB usually changes dates – postponing the mock or main exams. Candidates should follow the schedules for the JAMB activities

The board has already listed how things would go. You may throw yourself into confusion if you’d committed to one date and later someone told you a new date had been chosen.

Hence, you should be following JAMB updates yourself to be sure. One of the right channels is the boards’ Twitter page and its bulleting.

Candidates can equally be following the right blogs such as for regular updates.

And most recently; radio, TV and newspapers are showing more interest in the JAMB news. You can be regular with those channels too.

3. Preparation for the Main Exams

As already noted, after the JAMB registration, candidates must be set for exams. 

The preparation for UTME is far more important as that will determine if you’ll be confident to partake in other activities after the results.

4. Writing the JAMB UTME Exams

You’ve prepared and here comes the exam.

JAMB will invite you for the exams. A few days before the papers, the board will announce that candidates should be reprinting their exam slip or schedules. It’s through this that you will know your exam date, time and venue.

In case, you don’t know. JAMB exam doesn’t hold the same day for all candidates. The board may conduct the exams for about a week or more. Thereby, while some may write theirs on Monday, some will be on Tuesday and so on.
