How Candidate can Generate UTME Profile Code for JAMB Registration

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board,JAMB, had on Monday, December 12, 2022 during its Weekly Bulletin in Abuja announced that Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, candidates can now generate profile codes by themselves and save the information for use when registration commences.

The board also disclosed the requirements and the procedure to generate the profile codes by intending UTME candidates.


1. National Identification Number, NIN

JAMB said: “Candidates are advised to get their National Identification Number, NIN, as it is a prerequisite for UTME and Direct Entry, DE, registrations.

Unique Mobile Phone Number: A candidate can only use one phone number, and that phone and such phone can’t be used by another candidate as the phone number is a unique identifier for the candidate and the means to pass information to the candidate through out the exam and admission processes. Such mobile number must always be available.

What JAMB said:

“Candidates are required to use a unique mobile phone number for the process and such number can only be used by one candidate.

Process of Generating Profile Code for UTME Registration

To generate your profile code with your mobile phone, send: NIN (space) then your NIN number (11 digital number) as a text ((SMS) to 55019 or 66019

A 10 character profile code will be sent to your mobile phone through SMS.

What JAMB said:

“To generate their profile codes, candidates are expected to send: NIN (one space) then their NIN number (11 digits 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.”

You are advised to note that the phone number used to send the text message to either of the two quick codes was automatically tied to you, and it would also be used by the JAMB in all communications relating to application, examination and admission.

JAMB urged prospective candidates to adhere to its strict warning against the use and application of henna, also called “Lalle”,  to avoid experiencing biometric verification challenges, as it has been established that application of henna on the fingers obstructs the process of biometric verification.

“Also, in an attempt by candidates to clean their fancy henna designs, they use chemicals that damage the whorls on their fingers, hence making biometric verification and authentication difficult, if not impossible,” it said
