What Is JAMB Profile
JAMB Profile is the account you have with the Board containing all your information such as; Your First and Second Choice School, JAMB Subject Combination, CAPS, et cetera.
This profile also have the Profile code you used to register JAMB, it contains all your Bio-data (Name, Gender, Local Government of Origin and others). It is important you create this, as you register for JAMB.
Before now, JAMB Profile creation and registration were two different things, but in a bid to protect students data, JAMB made the process a little less complicated than it was before.
How To Create JAMB profile
Currently, JAMB no longer ask for Personal information like Name, Date of Birth, Address and all that, because the information JAMB needs are all available with NIN, that is why you cannot create your JAMB profile code without NIN.
Once you have obtained your profile code for JAMB and have completed your registration, you can create your Profile either in a

Why Should I create JAMB Profile?
As I mentioned earlier, creating your JAMB profile is as important as JAMB registration itself, I have highlighted some reasons why you should consider creating your JAMB profile if you have not yet…
- You cannot Accept or reject JAMB Admission on Caps if you don’t create your JAMB profile and properly link it.
- Students who may want to apply for JAMB Change of Course/Institution, correct an error or two in their JAMB Bio-data cannot do so
- Allows you to check your JAMB result with ease
- With it, you can print your JAMB Original result for clearance or whenever the needs for it arise
- JAMB Regularization is also done through the profile you created for JAMB.
With these few reasons, I hope you now see the reason to kick start the JAMB profile creation process.
