Following its accreditation by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to provide ePINs and forms for candidates seeking to register for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), digital payment and Commerce Company, Interswitch, has announced the opening of its platforms for the 2019 JAMB/UTME registrations.
Prospective candidates seeking registration for the 2019 UTME can obtain their ePINs and forms from enabled Interswitch platforms such as Quickteller Mobile App/Web, Quickteller Paypoint (Agents), via payment with Interswitch WebPAY on JAMB’s website, and through payment using Interswitch Paydirect at any bank branch nationwide.
Olawale Akanbi, Group Head, Corporate Solutions at Interswitch, explained that these platforms have been enhanced to make the registration process easier for the candidates.
He said: “We have provided a variety of payment platforms that are reliable, user-friendly and very secure. Candidates have varied options across the Interswitch platforms. This includes a payment collection solution that allows them to make payment at any bank branch and other channels, including ATMs and mobile”.
He gave five simple steps that candidates can follow to have a hitch-free registration. They are: Candidate sends “First Name Middle Name Last Name” to short code “55019”; A text is sent to the candidate acknowledging receipt of the request; A process code is sent to the candidate via SMS; Candidate takes code to Quickteller App/Web, Bank Branch, or Quickteller Paypoint Agent Location, then provides unique ID to proceed with the payment; candidate can now proceed with the payment via Quickteller App/Web, Bank Branch, or Quickteller Paypoint Agent Location.
Since its accreditation by JAMB in 2017, Akanbi said Interswitch has successfully enabled a seamless registration process for UTME candidates, providing up to 30,000 ePINs daily.
“Interswitch has for 15 years successfully delivered digital payments solutions in Nigeria with footprints across East Africa and Gambia. The JAMB UTME registration across the Interswitch platforms is not only easy and stress-free, it is also very reliable and secure” Akanbi added.
