By Adedapo Adesanya

Top consumer platform, Quickteller, has opened its platform for the sales of Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) electronic personal identification numbers (e-Pins), which allows for easy purchase of the examination forms.

This means candidates intending to sit for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) examinations can now obtain the required JAMB e-PIN from the comfort of their homes via the Quickteller payment platform.

According to Mr Olawale Akanbi, Group Head, Quickteller Marketing, “Quickteller is committed to ensuring that payment is one less thing to worry about for our customers. One of such payments is the JAMB ePin.”

“With our platform, prospective candidates can seamlessly initiate their registration process and purchase their 2020 JAMB ePins. In fact, the process is so easy, the candidates can actually complete it from their mobile phones.

“We like to reassure our customers that with Quickteller, everything is possible,” he added.

According to him, the Quickteller platform simplifies the registration process and eliminates the previously cumbersome JAMB registration process faced by many candidates nationwide.

For candidates to register, all they have to do is text, “First Name Middle Name Last Name” to the short code “55019” after which the candidate will receive an SMS acknowledging receipt of the request. He or she will then receive a profile code (unique ID) via SMS and they have to proceed on to www.quickteller.com/jamb, select “Pay for UTME or “Pay For DE” as applicable.

The candidate then enters the profile code, and then proceed to make payment, after which he or she will receive jamb ePIN after confirmation of successful payment and they have to take the ePin to the closest CBT centre to complete their registration.

Another alternative the candidate can use is visit https://www.jamb.org.ng/eFacility/CandPay/InitPay, select Procure Pin, enter your profile code and proceed to payment. Others include using any Quickteller Paypoint agent or any bank branch and request to pay for JAMB ePin after which the candidate gets an ePin after confirmation of payment.

Registration for both exams – UTME and DE – will end on Monday, February 17, 2020. Candidates are advised to optimize the registration period as the CBT examination will commence from March 14 to April 4, 2020.

On the Quickteller platform, people can also buy airtime, send money, pay toll fees, book flight tickets, pay cable TV bills, pay electricity bills, shop from over 100 global stores, take quick loans, buy event tickets, make state government payments, and everything in between.

The Impact of Smaller Classes on Education

By Zubair Suliman We’re often told that education is the best way out of poverty, but for many in Sub-Saharan Africa, the path out is often broken, especially for those who need an escape route the most. There are many reasons why education barriers in the sub-region persist. For one, enrollment levels remain a problem. World Bank economists found that more than one in five primary school-aged children in Sub-Saharan Africa weren’t in school last year. And, according to ISS African Futures, once kids are in school we also battle to keep them there. Despite progress made since the Education
