SOME VITAL REGISTRATION RULES

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 duplication of application vitiates all the applications.

Registration can only be done at the centres listed on the Board’s website (https://www.jamb.gov.ng) and at JAMB Offices across the country. Anybody who registers outside these centres does so at his/her own risk.

Non-candidates, including parents/guardians or any proxy, are NOT allowed to transact any business on any candidate’s profile. The registration process and all activities on candidates’ profiles are being monitored by the Board and defaulters shall be severely sanctioned. Any candidate who makes his 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.

ORDER OF CHOICE OF INSTITUTIONS (Any Institution can be first choice)

Every candidate is to note that his/her 1st choice can be a College of Education, University, Innovation Enterprise Institution, Polytechnic/Monotechnic, Nigerian Defence Academy or Police Academy.

Order Of Choice Of Institutions (Any Institution can be first choice)

Steps for 2023 JAMB Registration

JAMB PROFILE REGISTRATION

A. CREATION OF PROFILE

I. 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 for this or any other future transactions/applications).

ii. Candidate will send his/her National Identification Number (NIN) by text (SMS) to either 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 packages. They do not work unless specially loaded with credit.

iii. A Profile Code of 10 characters will be received by the candidate on the same telephone (SIM) number. Returning Candidates from previous years will still receive the same profile code on the same number previously used. Note that the profile remains the same for the candidate for present and future applications with the Board.

iv. The phone (mobile) number used for the text message is automatically tied to the Candidate’s name and will be used in all communication relating to each candidate’s 2023 or future 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” (DND) IS ACTIVATED

v. Candidate will present the profile code at the point of procurement of the application document (from Banks, MMOs, MFBs, Switches, USSD Partners). An ePIN is then sent as a text message to the candidate’s phone

vi. Candidate will present the Profile code and ePIN at any JAMB-accredited CBT Centre for registration

vii. The application cannot be completed until the candidate’s biometrics (all ten fingers) are captured and photograph taken physically (No submission of passport photograph). The successful capture of biometrics and photograph will authorise a candidate to print his/her e-registration slip (Candidate must use at least two fingers; any of the two can be used to print his/her registration slip. The fingerprint verification shall be required for any further transaction with JAMB on the candidate’s profile.

viii. Only candidates whose biometric verification is successful on examination day would be permitted to sit the UTME. No parent or any proxy is allowed to make any transaction on the candidate’s profile.

ix. Candidates with biometric challenges can only register at JAMB headquarters in Abuja. Arrangements should be made for this through JAMB-state offices. Candidates with biometric challenges would sit the examination in Abuja on the last day of the national examination calendar.

B. RETRIEVAL (IN CASE OF MISTAKE/LOSS) OF PROFILE CODE AND SELF SERVICE

i. To retrieve a lost Profile Code, send the word [RESEND] from the same mobile number to 55019 or 66019 as a text message.

ii. Candidates can reset lost or forgotten Profile Password on their registered cell phone number by sending the word “PASSWORD” space [the email address] from the same mobile number as a text message to 55019 or 66019.

iii. SELF-SERVICE: Candidates who are computer-literate can register directly unaided at some designated JAMB offices/PRCs

C. TICKETING  (FREE COMPLAINT)  

For ALL complaints on JAMB processes, a candidate should create a support ticket at (https://www.jamb.gov.ng by selecting the quick link, and then Ticket/Support with his/her email address with the Board. The candidate then provides his/her name, phone number and the nature of the complaint, selects a complaint area on a drop-down and then summarises the nature of the complaint. He/she should also attach supporting documents (if available). Complaints from 3rd parties are merely noted. Letter-writing is not necessary. Rather 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 wrong data, he/she can follow the same process on the ticketing and click on 2023 NIN-related issues then select the related topic on the drop-down.)

Candidates and the general public are to note that nobody can help with admission or upgrade of scores; they would only deceive and defraud those who patronise fraudsters. Therefore

Password should not be released to anyone by the candidates

According to JAMB, no candidate should proceed to any CBT centre without first creating a profile. Candidates are advised to create a profile by sending their name (Surname First-name and Middle-name) via SMS to 55019.

WARNING: 

“No two persons must use a single GSM number in commencing the registration process as it will not be acceptable. The way it is configured is one individual to one telephone number that will remain exclusive to that single individual for the purpose of the entire examination process. Not even siblings are allowed to share a particular telephone number for this purpose.” – JAMB Head of media, Dr Fabian Benjamin.
