    Global Update

    A lot of candidates have had questions about using phone numbers that they used in previous years to create Profiles.

    JAMB has answered these questions and they say that previously used phone numbers can be used BUT only by the same candidate who used it before. Below is the message from Jamb about this:

    ALERT! Previously Used Numbers for JAMB Registrations can only be re-used by the same Candidate (Not another candidate)

    A Previously Used Number is a GSM Telephone Number (SIM)used for Profile Code Creation, e-PIN Vending and Registration in Previous Registration Exercises.

    This can be used for the 2019 Registration ONLY BY THE SAME CANDIDATE. The Candidate who is using his/her previous number for the second or third time will use the same profile code to purchase the new e-PIN.

    If the Profile Code has been forgotten, the candidate can send RESEND to 55019 and he/she would recover the Old Profile Code. In other words, the Old Profile Code can be used by the same candidate to procure the new e-PIN. No new profile code is required.

    However, Candidate cannot change names by using CORRECT on this existing number as this Profile is already tied to the existing number (typically done before Registration) Candidate can use the command UTMEPIN and DEPIN to retrieve 2019 UTME e-PIN after e-PIN purchase.

    Candidate can register at any JAMB CBT Center with existing Profile (e-Mail, Telephone Number, Profile code) which cannot be changed. Existing Profile or already used number cannot be transferred to another candidate.

    New Numbers will follow the normal pattern of Registration as prescribed and advertised.

    Candidates will be able to register as normal by sending their Surname, Firstname and Middlename to 55019

    Candidates will be able to send CORRECT to 55019 in case of error before Registration

    Candidates will be able to retrieve newly generated Profile Code by using RESEND.

    Candidates will be able to Purchase e-PIN from any accredited outlet using newly generated Profile code as usual.

    Candidates will be able to use UTMEPIN and DEPIN after purchase of e-PIN to retrieve lost e-PIN
