How to Register for JAMB 2022/2023 [VIVIDLY EXPLAINED]

Registration for the JAMB 2022 UTME/DE has started. If you want to know how to register perfectly, this post will walk you through the simple steps and procedures that will ensure a smooth registration.

We understand that the process can be a bit complicated for some candidates. However, it is important to consider these steps to avoid a common mistake that many applicants make when applying for UTME. The step by step process for successful registration is described below;

How to create a JAMB profile code

A. Each candidate is required to use a unique telephone number (mobile number) (SIM) for the registration process. A unique phone number can only be used by one candidate (Note: this number (SIM) will remain your unique identifier for all your board transactions)

B. Applicant will send the National Identification Number (NIN) via short message (SMS) to 55019 or 66019 from his personal GSM number, for example writing the word “NIN”, then a space and adding an 11-digit NIN Add the number and send in this format to 55019 or 66019 (NIN 00123456789). There should be a space between the word “NIN” and your 11 digit NIN (note that the number must not be used by anyone else to register for UTME/DE in the past). Don’t use deferred payments or special package SIM cards, they won’t work unless specifically recharged with credit. Additional information about how to get JAMB code 2022 can be found here.

C. A 10-digit account code is received from the applicant on the same phone number (SIM number).

Phone numbers used for SMS are automatically linked to 2022 applications, exams and admissions. APPLICANTS SHOULD NOTE THE SIM NUMBER USED AND ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR FURTHER COMMUNICATION WITH BOARD.
