The JAMB profile code is the new way the board has decided to enroll students for her examination. In other, for you to register for the JAMB examination, you'll need to first generate a profile code that will then be used to process your JAMB Registration.

Now that you know what JAMB profile code is, let's learn how to generate one:

You will need a sim card and a mobile phone to begin your registration process, pay close attention to the following notes:

  • i. One sim card cannot be used by two or multiple persons, One candidate, one sim card
  • ii. The Cell phone number used to create the profile code is automatically tied to the Candidate’s name and will be used in all communications related to his/her JAMB related issues. An example is if you want to make a change of course or institution, you will be required to provide the sim card you used for generating this code.
  • ii. Do not use someone's number, not even your father, mother, or sister's own use your own SIM and be sure you can always reach for this sim card.

If you have your sim card and phone ready,

  1. Type the word 'NIN' then space and add your 11 digit NIN number and send to 55019 by SMS
  2. - e.g [NIN 00123456789]
  3. - There should be a space between the word 'NIN' and your 11 digit NIN
  4. You will instantly get a text message reply containing your 10 digit profile code. Do not worry if the reply takes a little longer, sometimes the could be network related issues.


To correct a mistake in the candidate’s name, send the [CORRECT Surname First-Name Middle-Name] to 55019 as a text message from the same mobile number
