The JAMB Profile Code is a unique identification number assigned to every candidate who wishes to register for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination in Nigeria.
It serves as a means of identification and helps to streamline the registration process.
To obtain a Profile Code, candidates are required to send their National Identification Number (NIN) to a designated shortcode provided by JAMB.
Once the NIN is successfully received, JAMB will generate a unique 10-digit code and send it to the candidate via SMS.
How To Get Profile Code For JAMB Via SMS
If you want to get your JAMB profile code quickly and without the need for an internet connection, you can do so easily using your mobile phone.
All you need is a mobile phone with network coverage and your National Identification Number (NIN) handy. Here are the simple steps to follow:
- Access your phone’s message box.
- Type in ‘NIN’, followed by a space, and then input the 11 digits of your NIN. For example, ‘NIN 12345678899’.
- Send the message to either 55019 or 66019.
- You will receive a 10-digit code in your message inbox.
Please note that this process will incur a cost of 50 naira, which will be deducted from your mobile network provider balance. Therefore, ensure that your mobile number has at least N50 airtime.
How to Get JAMB Profile Code Through USSD
Getting your JAMB profile code through USSD is a simple and convenient method. By following a few easy steps, you can obtain your profile code without any technical complications. Here’s how:
- Ensure you have your National Identification Number (NIN) handy.
- On your mobile device, dial *55019*1*Your NIN#.
- Wait for a few seconds as the USSD code processes your request.
- You will receive a confirmation message containing your profile code.
It’s important to note that you must have a valid NIN in order to obtain your profile code through USSD. If you haven’t registered for your NIN yet, make sure to do so at your nearest NIN enrollment centre.
This method is considered less technical compared to the SMS method as it eliminates the need for composing and sending a message. With just a simple USSD code, you can retrieve your profile code hassle-free.
