In Nigeria, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) organizes entrance exams for higher education institutions. The board administers the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination to applicants to undergraduate programs at Nigerian universities. Furthermore, the board is in charge of administering equivalent exams to students seeking admission to Nigerian public and private polytechnics, monotechnics, and colleges of education. Each of these applicants must have achieved the West Africa Senior School Certificate (WASSCE), which is given annually by the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, or its counterpart, the National Examination Council (Nigeria), Senior School Certificate Examination, NECO SSCE.

How to Create JAMB Profile

Before you can use the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) E-facility portal to perform any actions such as registration, printing of JAMB result slips, printing of admission letters, applications for data correction, checking of admission status, admission regularization, and so on, you must first create a Jamb profile.

Create JAMB Profile Using SMS:

To create a new profile, go through the following steps: Send Surname FirstName MiddleName as an SMS from your unique GSM number to 55019. Check that the names are in the correct order and separated by a space. For instance, Charles Joseph John.

Each candidate would need to use a unique mobile phone (mobile) number for the registration process. (SIM). Only one candidate may utilize the unique phone number (Note: This number (SIM) preserves your unique identification across all contacts with the Board.

From his or her own GSM phone, the candidate will text (SMS) his or her National Identification Number (NIN) to 55019 or 66019. For example, put “NIN” followed by a space, then your 11-digit NIN number, then send this format to 55019 or 66019. (NIN 00123456789).

 Between your 11-digit NIN and the phrase “NIN,” add a space. (Remember, the number cannot have been used by another person to register for the UTME/DE). Avoid using postpaid or special package SIM cards, as they require additional credit loading to function.

The candidate receives a 10-character Profile Code on the same phone number (SIM).


The candidate brings the profile code to the point of form procurement. (Banks, MMOs, MFBs, Switches, USSD Partners). The form-ePIN is then sent to the candidates’ phone numbers via text message. For registration, the candidate must submit the ePIN at any JAMB-accredited CBT Centre.

The application cannot be submitted unless the candidate’s biometric (all 10 fingers) is physically collected and photographed. (No submission of passport photograph). After successfully capturing biometrics and a photograph, a candidate will be able to print his or her e-registration form. The fingerprint will be required for any further transactions on the candidate’s profile with JAMB.

Only candidates whose biometrics verification is successful on the day of the examination will be allowed to take the UTME. No parent or proxy may conduct any transactions on the candidates’ profiles. Candidates who have biometric issues can only register at the JAMB headquarters in Abuja. This would be arranged by the JAMB state offices.
