As part of its measures to ensure a smooth 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) registration, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that prospective
candidates can now generate their profile codes and save same for use during registration.
This was contained in a statement made available to Blueprint Monday by JAMB’s Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, as part of the buildup to the commencement of the 2023 UTME registration billed
to commence in two weeks.
The board aso advised candidates to get their NationaI Identification Number (NIN), which is a prerequisite for UTME/DE registration.
“Candidates are required to use a unique phone (mobile) number SIM for the process of using NIN for the registration as such, a number can only be used by one candidate,” Dr. Benjamin said.
According to the statement, to generate their profile codes, candidates are expected to send NIN (one space) then their NIN number (eleven digits number) by text (SMS) to either 55019 or 66019 from their personal GSM number.
“A profile code of 10 characters will be received by the candidates on the same telephone number.
“Candidates are advised to note that the phone number used to send the text message to either of the two quick codes is automatically tied to their
respective names and will be used by the board in all communications relating to application, examination and admission.
“Prospective candidates are also urged to heed the strict warning on the use and application of henna, otherwise called “Laai”/“Lale” to avoid biometric verification challenges,” he said.
