Getting the code is easy! You can generate jamb profile code by sending sms to a short code number from your phone number, which have not been used by another person to register for UTME/DE in the past.

How To Get JAMB Profile Code

  • Ensure you have airtime on your phone line even if you’re using a post-paid line or if subscribed to special bundle packages on your line.
  • Open text message app on your phone.
  • Tap on the compose option to send a message.
  • Type NIN, leave a space, type your 11-digit National Identification Number and send to 55019 or 66019 in this format (NIN 00123456789)
  • You will get a reply containing the 10-character jamb profile code and your registered NIN Name.

Once you have the code, you can proceed to use it to buy jamb pin and proceed to a nearby JAMB CBT center to complete your registration for the JAMB examination.

If you do not know your National Identification Number, you can check your NIN by dialing *346# from the phone number you used to register for NIN.

Kindy note that the phone number used for the text message is automatically tied to the candidate’s name and will be used in all communication relating to each candidate’s jamb application, examination and admission.

Hence, each candidate is required to use a unique phone number for the jamb registration as the SIM remains the unique identification for all transactions with the jamb board.

You should note and always remember the phone number used to generate jamb profile code. Very important!
