Can I Register for My National ID Card at a CBT Centre?

National ID card
JAMB has insisted all prospective admission seekers (both UTME and DE candidates) in the 2020/2021 admission year should register for the National ID card. These candidates will be given the National Identification Number (NIN).

National Identification Number (NIN) is the unique number that identifies you for life and is issued to you by National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) after your enrolment. It is used to match you with your biometric data and other details in the National Identity Database during verification and authentication.

As a matter of fact, you don’t need the ID card for JAMB registration, rather only the NIN (the 11-digit number) will be required of you.

Will CBT Centre Register National ID Card?

Some candidates had made attempts to register the national ID cards in their towns but to no avail. Some centers complaining of printer fault and similar issues.

As a result, candidates are asking if it’s possible to do the registration for the National ID card at individual CBT centers too.

The good news…

JAMB has instructed all CBT centers to make provision of a stand for NIMC officials within its premises to capture intending applicants before they register for Unified Territay Examinations.

That is officially backed up with JAMB Advisory Instructions for 2020 CBT registration.

The bad news…
To date, we’re yet to receive news of any CBT centre making such provisions. In the meantime, candidates will do better to get their NIN before heading to CBT centres. Though, there is the expectation that sooner, more CBT centres will make the provisions.

JAMB UTME/DE Candidates Can Register National ID Card at CBT Centre

Having said that, candidates should make every effort to register their National ID cards at their individual communities and assigned the National Identity Management Commission offices/centres, and if things remain blank or difficult, you can then consider visiting the nearest CBT centre where NIMC stand is available.

However, No JAMB accredited CBT Centre or any of its officials can serve as AGENT for NIMC (at least not yet) in enrollment for NIN.
