Most of your concerns have been addressed in my post, “JAMB UTME/DE: Answers to the Questions Bothering Admission Seekers“. Yet, some questions keep coming up. Hence, I see reasons to break things down a little further. Below is a quick look at what a UTME or DE applicant may want answers to.
1. What is the JAMB Profile Code?
This is the code you will generate by sending NIN followed by your 11-digit NIN as an SMS to 55019. This will be done through a candidate’s PERSONAL phone number. After sending the SMS to 55019, like this NIN 97162190123, you will receive a 10 digit number. This is your profile code. For example, a profile code looks like this – 1960000111
2. What is the JAMB Profile?
Each candidate will have access to his or her JAMB profile after completing biometric registration at a CBT centre. This profile can be logged into here. You must remember your email and password before you can log in.
It’s through this profile, candidates will be able to perform a series of activities that will follow the release of UTME results. Through the profile, you will be able to check JAMB result, do the change of data, follow admission stages, accept admission through CAPS, print original JAMB result and admission letters, etc
3. What are the JAMB email and the phone number?
These are the email and the phone number you use to generate the profile code and creating your profile at the CBT centre.
The phone number or the email may be different from the ones you use for other daily purposes and it can be the same.
4. What is JAMB e-PIN or PIN?
The two terms are the same. This is the 15-digit number that will be vended for you at the bank, online, NIPOST, café, CBT centre, etc in order to register for UTME or DE. This can also be called your JAMB or DE form. The e-Pin or PIN looks like this 2186 1100 4277 000.
This will be needed by a CBT centre to register your UTME or DE.
5. What are JAMB Accredited CBT Centres?
These are JAMB-approved centres where admission seekers should visit to register their UTME or DE. These centres can perform other services apart from the registration of UTME/DE. Other services include:
- Conducting UTME and other JAMb supervised exams
- Corrections of data
- JAMB regularization
- Conduct of JAMB exams
- Uploading of O’level results
6. How Can I Speak to JAMB Officials or Supports?
JAMB has made all her branch offices across the nation open for candidates to seek supports. Other available channels are well discussed in my post, “JAMB Supports: How to Contact JAMB for Helps If You Have Issues”.
7. Can I Make Corrections to My JAMB Profile or Registration Details?
Yes. You can.
But it all depends on the kinds of errors that need corrections. You will find the two posts below resourceful for your questions.
I have covered a great deal of these possible errors and how to correct them in my post:
- UTME/DE: Errors with Name, Email, Date of Birth, Gender, Local Government, Subjects Combination and Solutions
- What Candidates Should Do With Wrong Subjects Combination
8. What are JAMB’s Recommended texts (books) for this year’s UTME?
Below are the links that take you to all books JAMB has prescribed for all UTME candidates to prepare for their papers.

9. Will I be Given the “Sweet Sixteen” at a CBT Centre, Café, Bank, NIPOST?
All other selling points or centres are not to provide you the book after selling you the form. Only CBT centre where you register your UTME/DE will give you the literature book.
10. What is the Sure Way to Study and Pass JAMB UTME?
You will find, “5 Recommended Tips to Prepare and Pass UTME Within Days“, helpful for your exam preparation. And “Getting Set to Process Admissions in Nigeria Institutions” will also prepare you beyond writing and passing the exam.
11. Where Can I Get Updated JAMB Brochure to Study for my Choices?
