How to Reset JAMB Password with Phone Numbers – JAMB

JAMB Official Method to Get Back Your Forgotten Profile Password.

I have really tried to help several students who forgot their JAMB profile passwords. I felt their pains because several candidates had visited me with faces of worry. Imagine what it would be like if you lost your JAMB profile password without help. You can’t check CAPS. You can’t see your admission status. And if offered admission, you can neither accept nor print the admission letter.

This is why I gave about 5 ways to get a lost profile password or email password as the case may be.

As if that was not enough, I let you know when JAMB opened her official online contact medium through which you could report issues of any sort to the matriculation body directly. This would be helpful if you want to avoid visiting JAMB state branches in the country before you can solve a problem.

Those who have read the posts above had been helped. Yet, a few were not getting things done. Why?

Some had forgotten the passwords to their emails. Some don’t have access to the phone numbers they used for security codes during the email registration. Some used Yahoo Mail for their profiles. And in most cases, Yahoo accounts had not been receiving reset links from JAMB even if you tried to reset your JAMB password through forget password link available on the JAMB portal.

The problem has led several CBT centres and unscrupulous cafes to be exploiting students before they could help them out. This is why I had to contact JAMB for other ways around this issue.

You should be happy with my findings – JAMB has finally given you a universal method to get your lost JAMB profile password back without any visit to a cafe or CBT centre or even the JAMB office anywhere in Nigeria.

Though there are three conditions attached to that. 

  1. You must know your JAMB email. You can easily get that on your JAMB UTME registration or exams slip. 
  2. You must still have a phone line you used for JAMB registration active on a phone. If you’ve lost that, all it takes is to do welcome-back or retrieve that at any MTN, GLO, Etisalat, Airtel offices, or shops around you.
  3. You must be ready to spend just N50.
