Before this revision, the cost of the JAMB form without a mock exam was Five Thousand Seven Hundred Naira (N5,700), and the application form inclusive of a mock exam was priced at Six Thousand Seven Hundred Naira (N6,700). Additionally, the application documents for foreign candidates will now be available at $30. A comprehensive breakdown of these fees is expected when JAMB unveils the registration details on or before January 15, 2024.
