  17. i just did mine today I avnt gotten any pin yet …..i sent my name already and i got these reply………the first reply I got was that …..we are processing it this service will only cost #50……………
    the second reply was DAT the surname and the first name must be supplied .kindly adhere to the format [surname first name and middle name]

    does DAT mean I should wait for the pin or I should kindly resend it ?

    • it means that you didnt input your data correctly at first.maybe you didnt follow the format before,try again and follow the format this time

  18. Osunde Owie Isaac

    Can’t one create a profile apart from sending through the short code. That is the way we did it last year?

    • This year process is different from that of Last year.

      • Okay so I went to jamb’s website and I saw a “create profile” spot where I just had to provide my name and email and they sent me a 10-digit code via email for me to use at a cbt centre for registration. Is that alright?

  19. Schoolnews, I Need You To Help Me Out With This. I Sent My “Surname Firstname Middlename” To The Code According To Jamb Process But Each Time I Send It, Its Replying [FAIL TO SEND] what will i do?

  20. Following the start of registration of UTME, I want to know if Direct Entry Registration will also go on concomitantly with UTME ?

    • From the official information released by JAMB, I think the two registrations will run simultaneously because the board did not announce a different date for DE candidates like they did last year.

  21. Pls, how much is the form ?

  22. Abdulhameed kamaluddeen

    Is DE not yet ready for broadcast?Abdulhameed kamalidden

  23. Why do I keep getting “insufficient balance” as a reply? I have more than enough balance for this message.

  24. This process is very cumbersome…. What about those in villages?

    What kinda country is this

    • Let’s be optimistic and be patient with JAMB.
      Guess they’re fine tuning the process.
      This, I guess is better as at least even those in the rural areas can afford to access a phone.

      • Please, i have sent my name to the code and I am yet to receive my ten digits code o. It’s been a while now. Please whats going on

  25. KAMALUDDEEN Abdullahi
