Answers to Most Common Questions Applicants Are Asking
1. Can I use last year’s profile for the 2021 admissions?
Because of a series of misunderstandings or mix-ups that may crop in during the admission exercise, I advise you to create another profile for this year’s UTME.
All you will need is a new email and phone number different from the last one used.
Meanwhile, if you choose to use the old profile, you just need to copy out your profile code to buy the new form. This will work fine if you prefer it. You may need to send RESEND to 55019 on the same line used last year. You can as well send a fresh SMS in the following format.
2. Can I use last year’s email for the year’s JAMB profile?
Yes, you can!
If you are using the old profile code, it has already been attached to the old email. So, you don’t have any other options than to use the old email.
If you decide to create a new profile, however, you can (should) use another email along with another phone number.
3. Can I use the same phone number used last year?
Yes, you can.
The phone number is valid for this year’s admission activities. You can, therefore, use it to get your new profile code by sending your NIN (space) your 11-digit NIN to 55019.
Meanwhile, if you use the old phone number, it will force you to use the old profile. In other words, you will be given the same profile code sent to you last year if you request a profile code through 55019 again.
4. Can Two Applicants Use the Same Phone Number to Get Profile Code?
JAMB warned admission seekers not to use the same phone number as their friends to get their profile codes.
This is because once a candidate uses the line to get code, his or her name has been tied to that number.
5. Can I use my parent’s or relative’s number to Get the profile Code?
You can use your mother’s or father’s phone number to get the JAMB profile code. Nothing is technically wrong with that. What is important is – don’t use a number that has been used for JAMB in the past or this year for another candidate.
6. Can I buy the JAMB Application form or PIN myself online?
Yes, you can.
You must, however, understand the procedures to follow. Else, I advise you use the service of a cyber café (form sales only) or CBT centers for both sales of form and registration.
7. How Can I buy UTME/DE form (PIN) Online?
- First, send NIN (a space) 11-digit NIN to 55019. Make sure you have at least N50 credit on your line.
- Visit the JAMB page to buy the form. You can also buy the PIN through Remita
- Enter the profile/confirmation code you received through the SMS.
- Proceed to enter your email address and payment stage. You will be required to make a payment of N4,000 through Interswitch or Remita.
- After the payment, go back to the Sales of form page and start the process as if you want to buy afresh. This time, it will take you to your PIN page. You can also enter your profile code and click Retrieve PIN
- Print the page and take it to the CBT centre for your registration. A copy of the PIN slip will be sent to your email by Remita, if used.
8. Can I buy my JAMB form (PIN) and Register at a cyber café?
Yes, you can buy the PIN from a café. You can’t register there.
Cyber cafés are allowed to sell JAMB form. They are not allowed to register for you but they can buy the form (PIN) for you online.
Hence, you can buy from them before proceeding to the CBT centre for your registration.
9. Where else can I buy my JAMB form?
Bank, NIPOST Office, CBT centres, Jumia One App etc. But it will make their service fast if you can first generate or retrieve your profile code before proceeding to those offices.
10. How do I generate a profile code for my JAMB?
Send NIN 11-digit NIN (e.g NIN 56789874312) to 55019.
If you’re using the old JAMB profile, kindly log into your profile with the email used and its password to retrieve your profile code. You can also send as above or RESEND as SMS to 55019 using the same phone number used last year to recollect your profile code.
11. If I buy the JAMB PIN now, can I register later?
Yes, you can.
It’s not compulsory to complete your registration the day you buy the form or vend the PIN. You can go to CBT centres later for registration.
Be sure you go for the registration before the official closing date. That’s all.
12. Can I use Awaiting Result (AR) for JAMB UTME Registration?
Yes, you are permitted.
However, you must return to any CBT centre to reupload the result as soon as it is released and printed.

14. When will JAMB CBT exams hold across the country?
The 2021 computer-based test examination will begin on Saturday, March 14, and end on April 4 (If not extended). But you can expect a possible extension.
15. When is this year’s JAMB form going to close?
This year, the sales of registration forms to all candidates (UTME/DE) including those outside Nigeria, started April 8, 2021 and will be ended 15th May 2021 (if not extended).
16. I’m applying for DE. Can I use my recent UTME profile for Direct Entry Registration?
No. You should create another profile for your DE.
JAMB CAPS platform gave you admission for your ND or NCE back then. The same profile may not be able to allow another admission. Hence, opening a new profile is better.
