These are the six (6) compulsory steps you must take to successfully register for JAMB, I will explain each of these steps so you can get an understanding of the entire registration process.

1. Create your Personal Email Address

This email address allows you to create JAMB profile online which can then be used to access your JAMB CAPS when the time is right.

If you don’t have one, you can easily create for free @gmail.com.

But I already have an email address before, can’t I use it for my JAMB Profile creation?

If you already have an email address, there will be no need to create a new one, provided you have not used the email address to register JAMB before, because you cannot use one email address to register for JAMB twice.

If you have your email ready now, then the next important thing to get would be an active phone number

2. Get an Active Phone number from any of the network service providers

Before you can create JAMB profile, you need an active phone number.

This will be used to request for your JAMB profile code, it is this JAMB profile code you then use to purchase your E-pin for the registration.

The Phone number can be used by one student only. Do not use any random number for your JAMB registration because

…the phone number you use will be tied to you, and cannot be used by anyone else again and will be used for all communication from JAMB to you, like sending of your JAMB result.

But I have used my phone number for JAMB before, can I use it again?

If you registered for the previous JAMB, and used your phone number to request for JAMB profile code that year, you can still use the same phone number for this year JAMB

The only data you cannot use again this year is your email address, you should not use the same email address you used for JAMB before.

3. Register with NIMC to get your National Identification number (NIN)

NIN for JAMB registration

The Board has made the use of National identification Number (NIN) compulsory for 2024 JAMB

…so if you have not registered with NIMC before then I will urge you to stroll to the nearest NIMC office closest to you for your registration.

Once you complete your registration, you will be given your NIN which you will then use to also create your JAMB profile, please make sure the information you fill when registering for NIN are correct…

because that is where all your DATA such as name, date of birth, local government area, gender will be collected from, so if you submitted wrong DATA you are indirectly submitting wrong information to JAMB.

What of those who already have their NIN but has forgotten it?

If you have already registered for NIN, then dial *346# from the options displayed, select “NIN Retrieval”, by typing in ‘1

If you are using the same phone number you enrolled with for your NIN, follow the steps displayed on your screen and provide the required inputs.

Or you can simply check the brown slip you were given upon registration for NIMC.

Now that you have your email address, Phone number and NIN you can now begin the official process of JAMB registration by creating your JAMB profile.
