You can’t print or reprint after the registration period elapse.

Deadline for printing jamb acknowledgement slip
You can’t tell exactly when JAMB registration will end, therefore, make sure you print your jamb acknowledgement slip as soon as possible and make photocopies.
Don’t wait for deadlines, as far as JAMB is concerned, do whatever you want to do whenever it is available.
Do DE candidates write UTME examination?
Many DE candidates after successful registration wonder if they will also write UTME examination. Also, the way JAMB listed some O’level subjects on the acknowledgement slip confuses some of them the more.
So, will you write UTME examination? The answer is; NO
However, you have to register with JAMB, so that JAMB can verify your result and confirm you are qualified for admission. It helps JAMB to record your admission details on her database after you are offered admission by your desired institution.
Presently, many institutions extract candidates information from JAMB database automatically during Post UTME registration. Therefore, ensure you fill in your correct details during registration as an attempt to rectify any error after final submission may cost you effort and money.
Furthermore, though you wouldn’t write UTME examination, yet, most universities will conduct an aptitude test before they offer you admission. So, research more about your desired institution to know if you will need to write an aptitude test before you will be offered admission.
What should I do after I’ve successfully registered for JAMB direct entry?
All you have to do after successful registration is to wait and pay attention to when your desired institution will announce screening/aptitude test registration.
Also, if your desired institution will conduct a written test, you can use that time to prepare for the test. You can always reference your acknowledgement slip as a reminder in case you forget the institution you picked during registration.
While registering for JAMB direct entry, be vigilant and ensure you enter your correct details before final submission. Also, collect your acknowledgement slip as evidence of successful registration.
And finally, make sure you use an active email address for the registration – most likely, JAMB will send your acknowledgement slip to the registered email address.
