What Is JAMB Profile Code?

JAMB Profile code is a Unique number given by JAMB. Over a million students apply for JAMB yearly to study in different universities in Nigeria

These students are not mixed up together simply because of their unique ID (JAMB Profile Code) and Registration number, that is why, no two students can have exactly the same Profile code.

To be able to create your JAMB Profile code, you must have your National Identification Number (NIN), your name will be gotten from the data you filled when you registered with NIMC.

That is why it is important you make sure your details for NIN are correctly filled, as any error would always reflect each time your NIN is to be used.

    • Hello Cosmos, you are expected to use the Phone number you used for your profile code in 2021 to send the code, mind you, you are not suppose to text your NIN directly this time but to use the retrieve option.

  6. Good evening Drug Savant
    I have some questions
    1. If we registered for jamb in the previous year, do you suggest we use the same email and phone number we used in the previous year or we just use completely different ones
    Which one will be easier?
    2. When do we actually create the profile code?
    3. Is mock necessary to take?
    4. How do we read to cover our syllabus faster especially us that are not in school again

    Thank you very much Drug Savant
    God bless you
    Would be expecting your response soon enough!

    • Good day Daniel, I will attempt to answer your questions as numbered;

      1. You can use the same phone number you used in your last JAMB, but it is recommended you use a new email address.

      2. you can start creating your JAMB profile code once the form is officially announced to be on sale, which is expected to be January next year.

      3. Mock exam is not compulsory, but we have always advised students to grab every opportunity they have to test their level of preparedness for the exam, since you sat for JAMB last year you don’t need to get acquainted with the interface of the exam, but that should not prevent you from participating in the JAMB mock.

      and lastly…

      4. I have covered this to a great extent HERE

      SEE YOU AT THE TOP. Cheers🥂

  9. I have been trying to generate the profile code for my son using my phone number as he is in boarding school, but its been showing me different messages especially this ‘passport is missing in the construction ‘. Pls what does this mean and how do I rectify it?

  10. Good day sir the phone number used to generate profile code last can it be changed to another different number this year cause I heard jamb will send the profile code to the number of last year

      • I filled in the correct details, A guy said maybe my nin is not valid. I just want to know if it’s possible to activate a sim card and also a bank like palmpay, with a non valid Id please I need answers thanks.

          • I had an issue with my third name on my nin slip but I changed that last year and I got a profile code with it but I later found that the name I changed was still appearing on my jamb profile last so I sent back and got it settled but now I just tried to get a new profile code but jamb sent me the old profile code with the name I tried to change please what can I do

          • The profile code you are to use for this year registration is the same with what you used last year. IF you get same error in name, it means you may have to go through same process in correcting it.

          • Please how should I do I’m confused please help me out but I already went to nin office and now I’m having the correct name I want on my nin slip but the profile code I got was the old profile code with the wrong name
