The Board will track the registration process and all actions on candidates’ profiles, and defaulters will be severely punished. Any candidate who divulges his or her password, profile code, or other security codes to a third party (parents, friends, tutorial teachers, fraudsters, etc.) is responsible for any changes made by that third party (s). DO NOT TELL Everyone, Even JAMB OFFICERS, YOUR PASSWORD. These security codes are not to be requested by anyone for any reason at any registration center.

Order Of Choice Of Institutions

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

Steps for 2021 JAMB Registration

JAMB PROFILE REGISTRATION

The Cell phone number used for the text message is automatically tied to the Candidate’s name and will be used in all communications related to his/her 2020 Application, Examination/Admission. NOTE THE SIM-NUMBER USED. IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE FOR SUBSEQUENT COMMUNICATION
  2. Candidate sends his/her name [Surname First-Name Middle- Name (if any)] by text (SMS) to 55019. This should be maximum of 38 characters + 2 spaces between names = 40 characters in all to 55019 e.g Tinubu Adamu Odumegwu.

  4. 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 text message to the candidate

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: 

 

“It will not be appropriate if two people use the same GSM number to start the registration process. It’s set up so only one person is assigned to one phone number, which will be used exclusively by that person during the review process. Even siblings are not permitted to use the same phone number for this purpose.” – Dr. Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s media director.
