The Management of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB), says the board will introduce the use of USSD code as an option to the SMS process of generating a profile code for registration.

This, it said, was part of measures it had put in place to address some challenges experienced by candidates of its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has adopted 66019 as an additional and optional USSD code besides the 55019 code that had been in operation since 2018 for UTME/DE registration and other essential services offered by the Board.

This is to facilitate a hitch-free 2022 UTME/DE registration exercise by ensuring that there is no difficulty whatsoever in the creation of profiles by candidates, especially in a situation whereby many of them would be sending their requests via just one USSD code as hitherto the case.

In essence, the 55019 and 66019 are to be used to create their profiles for registration by candidates sitting the 2023/24 UTME/DE. As usual, candidates are required to send their National Identification Number (NIN) via either of these USSD codes for their details to be pulled from the NIMC database before they proceed to any accredited centre for biometric capturing.

It would be recalled that the Board had earlier given indications that, in its efforts to eliminate all bottlenecks associated with the creation of profiles, it was perfecting arrangements aimed at adopting an additional USSD code (66019) besides the 55019, which the Board had used exclusively since 2018 for its UTME/Direct Entry registration and examination exercises.

How to Create JAMB Profile USSD Code

” Another option we are creating asides sending an SMS to 66019 to generate a profile code will include dialing *55019*1*NIN#.

The registrar, who frowned at candidates’  inability to follow the right procedure for the exercise, also said that the board, alongside its major stakeholders, had agreed to accommodate common errors made during the registration process.

Some of the errors, he noted, were candidates mistakenly sending ‘NIN’ with no space before typing the actual number.

” Some type without spacing, some include comas and even hyphen.

” We have tried to enlighten the public on how to send and receive a successful profile code but candidates seem to get it wrong. We will work out modalities to accommodate all these common errors.

” That is to say that, whether one puts space or not, hyphen or commas, the message should be able to deliver.

” We have asked the service providers to go back and adjust their systems so that such errors are accommodated and we will  also go back to the drawing board and incorporate these errors into our systems.

Oloyede also said that candidates who had registered for UTME in the previous year could also generate a code with the same telephone number, following the 2021 process of generating a profile code.

He explained that the only difference between the previous registration process and that of this year was the inclusion of NIN.

The same code, he stated, might be sent to the candidate but would have undergone an upgrade from the board’s system.

He also noted that the board was connecting effectively with the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, on the registration process and have had not much to worry about.
