DO NOT GIVE YOUR PASSWORD to any centre (or Cyber Café). Any centre that asks for more than your profile code, email address and registration number is a fraudster. Do not give any passwords.

How to Create JAMB Profile

  1. Every candidate would require the use of a unique phone (mobile) number (SIM) for the process of registration. The unique phone number can be used by one candidate only (Note: This number (SIM) remains your unique identification for all your transactions with the Board.
  2. The candidate will send his/her National Identification Number (NIN) by text (SMS) to 55019 or 66019 from his/her personal GSM number, e.g. write the word “NIN” then space and add your 11 digit NIN Number and send to 55019 or 66019 in this format (NIN 00123456789). There should be a space between the word “NIN” and your 11 digit NIN (Note that another person must not have used the number to register for UTME/DE in the past). Do not use postpaid or special bundle SIM cards; They don’t work unless specially loaded with credit.
  3. The candidate receives a Profile Code of 10 characters on the same telephone(SIM) number.
  4. The phone number used for the text message is automatically tied to the candidate’s 2022 application, Examination and Admission. CANDIDATES SHOULD NOTE AND ALWAYS REMEMBER THE SIM NUMBER USED; IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE FOR SUBSEQUENT COMMUNICATION WITH THE BOARD BY OBTAINING UTME/DE APPLICATION DOCUMENTS; A CANDIDATE HAS ACCEPTED TO RECEIVE TEXT MESSAGES FROM JAMB (55019 or 66019) EVEN WHEN THE “DO NOT DISTURB” IS ACTIVATED
  5. The candidate presents the profile code to the point of procurement of form (Banks, MMOs, MFBs, Switches, USSD Partners). The form- ePIN is then sent as a text message to the candidates’ Phone numbers.
  6. The candidate presents the ePIN at any JAMB accredited CBT Centre for registration.
  7. The Application cannot be completed until the candidate’s biometric (all ten fingers) is captured and photographed physically (No submission of passport photograph). The successful capture of biometrics and photograph will authorise a candidate to print his/her e-registration slip. The fingerprint shall be required for any further transaction with JAMB on the candidate’s profile.
  8. Only candidates whose biometrics verification is successful on examination day will be permitted to sit the UTME. No parent or proxy is allowed to make any transaction on the candidates’ profile.
  9. Candidates with biometric challenges can only register at JAMB headquarters in Abuja. The arrangement will be made for this through JAMB state offices

  • Candidates are not permitted to register more than once. In the event of any error during the registration process, such candidates are to seek correction from the Board and not to obtain a fresh application as doing so would attract sanction.
  • Nobody, including parents/guardians or any proxy, is allowed to transact any business on any candidate’s profile. The Board monitors the registration process and all activities on candidates’ profiles, and defaulters shall be severely sanctioned. Any candidate who makes their password, profile code or other security codes available to another person (parents, friends, tutorial teachers, fraudsters etc.) is liable for any alteration done by such person(s). DO NOT GIVE YOUR PASSWORD TO ANYBODY, INCLUDING JAMB OFFICIALS. These security codes are not to be demanded at any registration centre by any person for any purpose.

(FREE COMPLAINT) TICKETING: 

For ALL complaints on JAMB processes, candidates can create a support ticket at (support.jamb.gov.ng) with his/her email address registered on the Board’s site. The candidate then provides his/her name, phone number and the nature of the issue, select a complaint area on a drop-down and then summarise the nature of the complaint. He/she may also attach supporting documents (if available) then send them. Complaints from 3rd parties are merely noted. Letter writing is not encouraged. Instead, all complaints should be channelled through the ticketing system for prompt attention and documentation.

For complaints relating to NIN (e.g. a candidate sends a message to 55019 or 66019 to create a profile but does not receive any response or receives incorrect data, he/she can follow the same process on the ticketing and click on 2022 NIN related issues then select the related topic on the drop-down).

NOTE THAT YOUR PASSWORD SHOULD NOT BE RELEASED TO ANYONE. JAMB CAN ONLY HELP ON PROFILE-PASSWORD, NOT E-MAIL-BOX-PASSWORD. YOU CAN ALSO CHECK YOUR ADMISSION STATUS ON JAMB IBASS APP ON YOUR PHONE. DO NOT CHECK AT ANY CYBER CAFÉ THAT WOULD DEMAND YOUR PASSWORD, WHICH IS THEN USED TO STEAL YOUR RECORDS. “TO BE FOREWARNED IS TO BE FOREARMED
