JAMB has disclosed that candidates can now start generating their profile codes for the 2023 JAMB UTME registration. The steps and processes to create a JAMB Profile code for 2023 UTME registration have been explained in this post.
Please note that without first generating a JAMB profile code, you will not be able to get the registration ePIN. This means that the first step to completing your JAMB registration is to first get your JAMB profile code. Now let’s see the step-by-step process of creating the JAMB Profile Code and getting ePINS for 2023 registration.
How To Create JAMB Profile Code Using Cellphones – Text (SMS):
a. Every candidate will 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)
b. 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 the number must not have been used by another person 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.
c. A Profile Code of 10 characters is received by the candidate on the same telephone(SIM) number
The phone number used for the text message will be automatically tied to the candidate’s 2023 JAMB 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
The candidate will present the profile code at the point of procurement of form (Banks, MMOs, MFBs, Switches, USSD Partners). An ePIN is then sent as a text message to the candidate’s Phone number
The candidate will present the ePIN and profile code at any JAMB accredited CBT Centre for registration
How To Retrieve Your Profile Code Incase of Mistake/Loss
