You might be wondering why NIN is A candidate who wants to register for Jamb must have their NIN ready, for those who have not yet registered for their NIN, please go to the nearest NIMC for NIN registration, because without your NIN you can’t register for Jamb, and get any access to Jamb. Your NIN will be linked to Jamb.


You might wonder if the phone number is really necessary. YES! it is very necessary. Your phone number is what will be used to create the Jamb profile code, those who did create their profile code last year can retrieve it using that same phone number. The phone number will be used to fill in your biodata. I hope you now understand why your phone number is very important for Jamb Registration.


For a candidate registering for Jamb 2024/2025, your Olevel result will be needed to complete your registration, without the result, it’s incomplete, O’level results are WEAC, and NECO GTB,.. while A’level results are being used as a direct entry. 

With O’Level / A’level you can get admission, that’s if the subject has up to 5 credit pass with the compulsory subjects. 

Those who are still in secondary school and want to register for Jamb can use awaiting results.


Jamb Profile codes are numbers provided by Jamb to candidates who register for Jamb, this profile code is what will be used to create a jamb Profile. So those registering Jamb for the first time can get the profile code by dialing *5509*1*NIN# on your phone.

 For Example Dial *55019*1*87949574839# A 10-digit code will be sent to your phone number. The 10-digit code is your JAMB profile code.


Jamb e-pin is like a token given to you or the person doing the registration gets a token after payment to Jamb. mind you there are differences between Jamb Epin and Jamb Profile Code. Jame profile code is the token or number used to create a Jamb profile while Jamb ePIN is used to complete jamb registration. And this Jamb e-pin can only be acquired after payment.
