Under normal circumstances, you should receive your JAMB Profile Code almost immediately, that is within 5 minutes of sending the request to 55019 or 66019.

This is under normal circumstances where the NIN you sent to JAMB is correct, your network provider have no issue with network and you have at least 50 naira as credit on the SIM you are using.

But if the network is bad, or you sent incorrect NIN to 55019 or 66019 you will receive an error message instead or experience delay receiving your JAMB Profile code.

So many things can contribute to you not receiving your JAMB Profile code as at when due or not receiving it at all, some of these causes includes;

  1. Not Having Sufficient Credit On your Sim
  2. Using special Package such as Post-paid, promo bundles e.t.c
  3. You Activated DND (Do Not Disturb) On Your SIM
  4. Using a SIM Already Used By Another Student

What To do If JAMB Don’t Send Your Profile Code Even After Doing Everything correctly?

There are cases where the problem will not be coming from you, this is rare though, but if you are convinced that you have done everything correctly…

…You sent the right NIN to the the right Code (55019 or 66019) in the correct format, and you have over N50 on the SIM with which you sent the SMS, then you can try the following.

  1. Do Not request the SMS immediately (Patience is a virtue)
  2. Wait till Mid-night (12am to 3am) to retry again

1. Do Not request the SMS immediately

Students can be very funny at times, you sent your NIN (in the correct format) to 55019 but yet no response, instead of giving it a break for a while, you keep sending the text repeatedly, that is not the best ways to go about it.

What you should do instead is wait for a while, give a break of 2 to 3 hours then try again

Why should I wait for that long when I need the Pin now? 😏

The reason you did not receive JAMB profile code will be most likely because the server is congested, and the only way to receive JAMB profile code is to wait for the system to be decongested, a break of 2 to 3 hours should do the Job.

2. Wait till Mid-night (12pm to 3pm) to retry again

If after waiting for 2 to 3 hours to retry, you still do not Receive JAMB profile code, then the best time to retry will be at Night when most persons would be asleep

At this time (12am to 3am), the network is less congested and as such making you get a response at the right time. Trust me, this works like magic.
