How Much Is Jamb Direct Entry Form 2023/2024?

The present cost of the JAMB Direct Entry form is 5,000 Naira (five thousand naira only) across the nation. It’s worth noting that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and NUC, recently reduced the price of the UTM forms to a mere 3,500 Naira from the prior 5,000 Naira.

We are optimistic that this generous reduction in fees will also be extended to UTME candidates in the near future, providing them with a more affordable opportunity to pursue their educational goals.
