Interswitch Group has announced the opening of its platform for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination registrations.
The group said in a statement issued on Sunday that parents and guardians of prospective candidates intending to register for the 2021 UTME could obtain their ePINs from Interswitch platforms from Thursday.
According to Interswitch, the platforms simplify the registration process and eliminate the cumbersome JAMB registration process faced by many candidates nationwide.
The group said, “Registration for the exam (UTME) will last for six weeks and end on Saturday, May 15, 2021. Candidates are advised to optimize this registration period.
“The cost of registration is N3,500 as directed by Federal Government since 2018. However, each candidate will also pay an additional N500 for reading text to be provided by Computer Based Test Centres at the point of registration.”
The Group Head, Corporate Marketing, Tomi Ogunlesi, said since its accreditation by JAMB in 2017, Interswitch had provided a variety of payment platforms that were reliable, user-friendly and secure, to ensure a seamless UTME registration process.
“Our services are available online, across more than 18,000 ATMs, at all bank branches nationwide and through over 32,000 Quickteller Paypoint Agents across Nigeria” Ogunlesi added.
The platforms include 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.
