UTME Candidates can now self-create profile codes
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, says Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination candidates can now generate profile codes themselves and save such for use when registration commences.
The board disclosed this in its Weekly Bulletin issued on Monday in Abuja.
According to JAMB, the development is part of measures to ensure a seamless 2023 UTME registration through the elimination of bottlenecks.
The board also said that the move was part of the build-up to the commencement of the exercise, billed to start in the next couple of weeks.
It said: “Candidates are advised to get their National Identification Number, NIN, as it is a prerequisite for UTME and Direct Entry, DE, registrations.
“Candidates are required to use a unique mobile phone number for the process and such number can only be used by one candidate.
“To generate their profile codes, candidates are expected to send: NIN (one space) then their NIN number (11 digit number) by text, SMS, to either 55019 or 66019 from their personal GSM number.
“A profile code of 10 characters will be received by the candidate on the same telephone number,’’ it explained. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
