When is JAMB reprinting starting?


The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) usually advises every candidate to reprint his/her JAMB slip. This is often done before the examination commences and all candidates are must adhere to this instruction. The 2021 JAMB UTME reprinting starts about one week before the JAMB CBT exams commence. If you want to have an answer to the question ‘When is JAMB reprinting starting?’ then keep reading this article.

After completing your JAMB UTME registration, you are going to be given a slip. This slip does not contain all the information that is required for the examination. The slip does not contain the schedule of the Exams and also the venue of the candidate. However, the venue, date, time, and other scheduling information will be provided after you reprint your JAMB slip.

The examination body will announce when the reprinting of the JAMB slip starts. Like I said earlier, this is mostly about one week before the examinations.

The 2021 JAMB UTME reprinting is expected to start from the 12th of June 2021. Reprinting ends a week later on the 19th of June 2021.

Most people are ignorant of the importance of reprinting their JAMB slip. This is one of the most important requirements you will need for the examination. 

In this article, I will tell you the importance of reprinting your JAMB slip. See below some of the reasons why reprinting your JAMB slip is very vital:

Why reprinting your JAMB slip is Important

  • The JAMB reprinted slip is important because it helps you know the venue and the date of your Examination. The slip you receive immediately after registration does not contain information about the date and venue of the Examination.
  • The Exam slip will be a pass that allows candidates into the exam hall. Invigilators will request dates into the hall. This means that you must have at least two copies of the JAMB slip; one for the invigilators and the other for yourself.
  • You can use the slip to aid yourself with calculations. This is for those who are writing subjects that require calculations. The slip is the only sheet of paper that you will be allowed to carry into the Exam hall.
  • The reprinted JAMB slip can be used as proof of registration. If you have misplaced the initial slip you received after registration, then the reprinted slip can serve as a duplicate.

Now that you know the importance of reprinting the JAMB slip, I will show you how to reprint your slip online. Follow the instruction below to reprint the JAMB slip.
