Remita Begins Sale Of 2024 JAMB Registration ePins, Provides Increased Commissions And Incentives To Agents And Schools

For many young people in Nigeria, gaining admission into higher institutions of learning is the first step towards fulfilling their career aspirations. Remita, a leading indigenous payment company, is empowering prospective students to take control of their academic journeys by offering a seamless registration process for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) registrations.

As recently announced by the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB), the sale of ePINs for 2024 UTME and DE registrations commenced on Monday, January 8, 2024, and will end on Monday, February 24, 2024.

According to Chinedu Alisa, the Retail Manager at Remita, prospective candidates can now purchase their ePINs on the Remita platform, which offers a hassle-free registration process and multiple payment options.

“We are committed to empowering young people across Nigeria to achieve their academic dreams, The sale of 2024 JAMB Registration ePINs on our platform simplifies the registration process and eliminates any inconvenience that candidates may face during their JAMB registration. We are proud to play a part in helping prospective students take control of their academic journeys”.

Explaining the process of purchasing the ePINs, Alisa said candidates are required to register with their National Identification Number (NIN) by sending an SMS to 55019 or 66019 with the word ‘NIN,’ followed by a space and their 11-digit NIN. They will then receive a 10-digit profile code via the phone number that should be used to purchase their ePINs. Candidates can proceed to the Remita website on Remita.net/JAMB, then choose ‘UTME’ or ‘Direct Entry’ and input their profile code, registered phone number, and other necessary details. Once payment is completed, the PIN will be delivered to the candidate’s registered phone number and displayed on their Remita receipt.

Remita has introduced the widest range of payment options, including bank transfer, debit or credit card, USSD, eNaira, mobile wallet, bank account, and internet banking. Prospective candidates can also walk up to any Remita agent or any bank branch to purchase their ePINs with Remita or pay through Remita on JAMB’s e-facility website.

As the payment platform continues to streamline processes, provide exceptional support, and deliver personalized experiences, Remita also aims at empowering agents, schools, and other partnering organizations across Nigeria who resell JAMB ePINs, with increased commissions when they purchase on Remita. “We are making sure that candidates benefit from a hassle-free registration process, while agents and schools enjoy the most competitive commissions per transaction”.  

He, however, warns that agents are prohibited from selling the ePINs above JAMB’s approved sales price, saying any agent caught will immediately be blacklisted from the system and handed over to the authorities.

With the sale of UTME ePINs ending on Monday, February 24, 2024, prospective students seeking admission into higher institutions across Nigeria are encouraged to purchase their ePINs on the Remita platform before the deadline and embark on an exciting journey towards a brighter future.
