These are basically the things you need to do before proceeding to any accredited CBT center for the JAMB 2021/22 registration.

1. Get your NIN [National Identification Number]

Go to any NIMC office or NIN registration centres near you to get your nation identification number which will be needed for your profile.

The registration is free and may take a while before you can get yours.

2. Get your profile Code

Following the release of the JAMB 2021/2022 UTME/DE forms, the next thing to do as an aspiring candidate is to obtain a profile code. The profile code is a ten digit number assigned to every candidate. Note that no two candidates can have the same profile code.

To get create your Jamb profile, send your NIN number to 55019. After sending the message, you will receive a confirmation message.

3. Purchase your JAMB E-pin

After successfully obtaining a unique profile code, the following step is to purchase your E-pin. The E-pins can be purchased from accredited agents like commercial banks. You can also purchase the pins online directly from JAMB at www.jamb.org.ng/eFacility/CandPay/InitPay .

You will be required to pay a sum of three thousand, five hundred naira (N3,500) only, to get this pin. This pin will be required to give you access to your JAMB registration 2021 form.

After you click on the link, you will be redirected to a page, where you will be required to input your profile code.

After imputing your unique profile code, you  make payment, and your pin is sent to the phone number which was used to obtain the profile code. Not that, your e-pin becomes automatically connected to your profile code. That is, you can’t use someone else’s e-pin.

If you are done with this stage, then you should proceed to the next registration process.

How To Register For JAMB 2021/2022 Easily

This stage is all in one. It is completed in a day. After securing your e-pin, proceed a to a JAMB accredited CBT Centre for your registration.

On arrival at the CBT centre, you will be asked to pay a sum of seven hundred naira (N700) only. It must not be more than seven hundred naira.

This is the maximum price that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has told all accredited CBT centres to charge candidates for their registration.

After the payment of seven hundred naira to the CBT centre, you will be allowed to go in and continue your registration.

During your registration, you will be asked to provide your profile code; e-pin; full name; date of birth, e-mail address, and most importantly, your O’ level result.

Regarding your name, make sure the name you will provide is in the exact format you used in obtaining your profile code. Also, make sure you provide a valid e-mail address, which has not been previously used for JAMB 2021 UTME/DE Registration.

If peradventure, you use an e-mail, which doesn’t exist, here is what you should do.

Create a new email account with the same address, of the e-mail you used for your registration. You will be on a safer side if you do this.

If you wish to write the mock examination, make sure you let the staff attending to you be aware on time. If you are filling in your details by yourself, when you get to the section “mock examination“, use the mouse to click on the box in front of it. The system then ticks it for you, meaning you have applied for the mock examination.

Now on getting to the section where you will be asked to provide a password, you are advised to use your surname or anything you can easily remember as password.

Many candidates, end up forgetting their password after using a long and confusing password.

Then on the O’ level result part, make sure you take the hard copy of your o’ level result with you to the registration centre. This is because, you will be required to scan your result. So do well not to leave it behind. Although, you can come back later to upload the results, if you unknowingly leave the hard copy at home.

Ultimately, keep the SIM you used in obtaining the profile code safe!…We’ll get to know the reason for this in the post registration stage.

In case you want to use awaiting result for JAMB 2021 registration, it is allowed.

Cost of JAMB 2021 Registration

While at the registration centre, you will pay a token of five hundred naira to claim your novel. In summary, you will be paying:

E-pin = N3,500

JAMB Novel = N500

POST REGISTRATION STAGE [After JAMB Registration 2021]

The last but definitely not the least, is the post registration stage, which will be more detailed and comprehensive than the others.

1. Printing of Examination Slip

The examination slip is popularly called second print-out or reprint. It is very much different from the slip you collect after your registration at the CBT centre. Unlike the first slip, the examination slip contains your examination centre, date and time.

Without this second slip, you won’t know anything about your examination centre, time and date. More so, you will be told to submit it at your examination centre after you are done with your examination.

The examination slip printing commences a week before the main examination begins. You will be notified via e-mail when it is time to print your exam slip. Hence, one of the reasons why you have been told to provide a valid email address.

This service is absolutely free. You will only pay to the cyber café for printing. The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board won’t charge you anything.

Note that the number of applicants and the time of registration can affect your examination centre. So you are advised to register as early as possible, so you don’t get placed in a centre far away from where you reside.

2. Main Examination

After printing your exam slip, the next thing is to go for your examination(details will be on the exam slip). You are advised to make photocopies of all your documents including the examination slip, as you will be asked to submit it at the examination centre.

3. Checking of UTME Results

Your results get to be released two days after your examination. You can either check it online via www.jamb.org.ng/eFacility/CheckUTMEResults or make use of SMS. If you prefer to check it online, follow these steps ;

1. Access the result checking portal via the link above.

2. Enter your JAMB registration number or the e-mail address used for your registration.

3. Click on “check my results”

4. Your results will pop up.

On the other hand, if you are want to check it via SMS, follow these steps;

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers About JAMB 2021/22

Now, let me take you through some questions candidates ask me frequently. The replies are also embedded therein.

Can I purchase my E-pin offline?

Yes, you absolutely can! Just walk in to a commercial bank, and tell the attendant that you want to purchase a JAMB 2021 E-pin. Pay to them, and get your pin.

You can also purchase your e-pin from agents.

Is JAMB Mock Examination compulsory?

No, mock exam is not compulsory at all. You can decide to or not to write it. It won’t affect your main exam score at all.

The aim of the mock examination is to get you conversant with the board’s system.

I tried checking my results via SMS, but I haven’t gotten any reply, why?

This could be a fault on the side of the network service providers. If you have sent the message, without getting a reply in twenty four hours, you are advised to use the online portal to check it.

Can I purchase the E-pin at the registration centre?

No! You must have purchased your E-pin, before going to the  registration centre at all.

I made a mistake in my name when I was requesting for profile code, what can I do to correct it?

There are two things here. If you have not purchased your e-pin before you realized your mistake, then you can go ahead and send the correct format of your name to 55019.

If you have purchased the e-pin, what you will do is to resend your name in the correct format, receive another profile code and purchase another e-pin.

So it better for you to confirm your details before going ahead with the purchase of the e-pin.

I lost my profile code, what should I do?

There might be instances whereby we misplace our phones which contain the message of profile code we received from JAMB. Well, good news is there is a solution.

If you misplaced your phone, you can retrieve your sim card, or if you no longer have the message, the main thing is the sim card you used in requesting the profile code is available.

Using that sim card, send your full name in the same format to “55019“, you’ll receive the same profile code again. Problem solved!

I made a mistake in my course/institution, is there still a solution?

Fortunately, there is a solution. If you make any mistake in your name, gender, institution, course, local Government Area, state of origin etc., The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has created an avenue to correct data like this.

This form is known as the correction of data form.

The correction of data form for the JAMB 2021/2022 session comes out after the JAMB cut off marks have been released. This service is not free. You will pay for it. Bear it in mind that the correction of data also has a limit to the number of times you can do it.

I forgot to register for the Mock Examination, Can I still register?

No! There is no solution to that. The mock application form comes with the main registration form. Therefore, if you submit your application for the main examination without selecting mock examination, you can’t go back again.

Just forget it!

Can I upgrade my Main Examination Score?

NO!!!! Don’t fall a victim of scammers who promise to upgrade your score for you after payment. Your JAMB score CANNOT be changed.

If you pay to anyone who tell you he works at JAMB office, and he eventually gets caught, all those involved will be prosecuted without waste of time.

That will be all for now. I hope you grabbed a lot. However, if you have questions which you are not clear about, feel free to ask us in the comment section. We’ll answer you as soon as possible.

Leave a comment below if you want to get notified when the registration commence.

Don’t forget to also share this post with other JAMB 2021 candidates that you know, sharing is caring.

    • No, you are going to pay #700 on your mock exam day, check out our article on jamb mock, at the cbt center where you registered.

  1. Please if I have my national identification card, please do I still have to register for the nation identification number (NIN)?
    Please I need your reply.

  2. Please what is the advantage of writing mock exam? Is there any extra benefit above the one that didn’t write it?
    Thanks, and God bless you.

    • It’s just like the main exam but the questions used in mock are more likely to be simple. There’s no extra benefit apart from giving an idea of how the exam is going to be if you are doing jamb for the first time.

    • Yes you can, there’s a quick video that will show you how to use the computer to answer questions and submit (it will be displayed on the screen of your computer).
