Digital payment and commerce company, Interswitch Group, is offering free tutorial classes to prospective and existing candidates of the forthcoming JAMB/UTME examination. This is coming on the heels of the extension of the sale of forms for the 2021 JAMB registration to May 29, 2021.
The tutorials will commence a few weeks before the examination and is exclusive to candidates who register on Interswitch enabled platforms such as Quickteller MobileApp/Web, Quickteller Paypoint (Agents), and Interswitch WebPAY on JAMB’s website. The tutorials will be held virtually across the country.
Interswitch revealed that it will be holding 84 virtual classes during the course of the tutorials that will cover 10 subjects namely; Mathematics, English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Literature in English, Government, Commerce, Economics, and Accounting.

JAMB had earlier slated May 15, 2021, for the deadline of the 2021 JAMB registration before it was extended to May 29, 2021.
The deadline extension gives parents and guardians of prospective candidates intending to register for the 2021 UTME the opportunity to obtain their e-PINs from enabled Interswitch platforms such as Quickteller Mobile App/Web, Quickteller Paypoint (Agents), and Interswitch WebPAY on JAMB’s website and through payment using Interswitch Pay Direct at any bank branch nationwide.
The cost of registration is N3,500 as directed by the Federal Government since 2018. However, each candidate will be required to also pay an additional N500 for a study pack to be provided by CBT Centres at the point of registration. Consequently, every prospective candidate will pay a total of N4,000.
