How Correct Name in JAMB?

Question
Image Source: Vecteezy

JAMB has made it very easy for student who registered for this year (2023).

To be able to do correction of name, you will need the sim you used when you registered for JAMB and at least 50 Naira in the sim, if you have these two things ready, then you can follow this guide.

This method is via USSD and you will need to slot that Sim into a working mobile phone to be able to use this method, that is, if of course the Sim was not in a phone before now.

With all said and done, here is how to apply for JAMB correction of Name using USSD (without data).

How To Correct Your Name In JAMB via USSD

To correct your name in JAMB, simply send a message containing your CORRECT FULL NAME (this time do well to double check so you won’t be making same mistake for the second time) to 55019 in this Format: SURNAME, FIRST NAME, MIDDLE NAME. with comma ” , “ in-between them

For example, ELENBALULU, GABRIEL, EBOSEREMHEN to 55019. Here, ELENBALULU is the Surname, GABRIEL is the Second name and EBOSEREMHEN the middle name.

LIKE I SAID BEFORE:

This method is strictly for student who sat for JAMB this year (2023/2024), then what about student who must have registered for JAMB some Years back, like 2022, 2021, 2020, 2016 and so on and so forth?.

Good question, Students in this category will not use USSD to correct their name, instead they will have to the alternative method provided by JAMB to do Correction of Name, to be able to do this, you must have a device that can access the internet (Laptop or Phone), data and your JAMB Profile Email Address and Password.

If you don’t have JAMB profile login details, probably because as at the time you sat for JAMB they was no room for online student portal, they is no need to worry, because you can easily create a new account with JAMB and still follow this process.

  3. Good day sir.

    I registered for the jamb exam this year but it was the middle name I used when registering for my Nin, that I had changed already from the nimc, that came up. I have already gone to the jamb office to do the change of name but it’s over a month now and the change have not been effected.

  4. Sir please I did regularization for undisclosed admission and submitted my indemnity form to school since March and till now I’ve not gotten any approval yet. I complained to the school ICT and admission officer they told me they’ve submitted to jamb that the fault is from jamb. Sir please what’s advisable for me to do

  5. Hello Admin,
    I made an error of using 3 names(the third, a full name of an abbreviation) for JAMB regularisation and received the admission letter from JAMB because it was the same on my NIN. After I received my result in School, it was 2 names because the third was just an abbreviation and making it difficult to mobilize for the NYSC. Now I want to change my NIN details to 2 names and the Jamb correction of names with the same 2 names to match my documents. Is it possible i receive another admission letter? Please this has been a stumbling block for months now. I just need guidance. If we can discuss privately to shed more light, I would be grateful. I will leave my email address.. [email protected]

    Sincerely,
    Retro

  8. Good evening, I made a mistake in my state of origin on my NIN I’ve done a change on it but it’s not reflecting on my Jamb portal. Do I need to do a data correction for it?

  9. I used a different middle name for Jamb that is not in my other documents and BVN. In my school I used my first and last name. I’m preparing to go for service soon. I want to confirm if I must change the middle name in my jamb?

  11. I corrected my name on my NIN and the correct name reflected on my new NIN slip but the wrong name keep on showing on my jamb profile. How do I resolve it please.

        • Hey Leem, SMS option has been deactivated by the Board, all correction request must be processed at JAMB’s center.

          Please note that, not all correction request will be approved, this content will be updated shortly.

          • Nothing from you end really, technically, JAMB only allows correction of name (in case of wrongly spelt name) but do not allow complete alteration of name, so you can correct wrongly spelt Drugservant to Drugsavant, but addition of name is not allowed
