JAMB Registration Requirements 2021/2022
Below is the must-have requirements before you can successfully register for JAMB. These requirements have also been listed in order of priority in descending order.
- O level result: Before you think of even writing JAMB exam, the number one pre-requisite is your Olevel result. In the absence of this. JAMB also takes awaiting result during the registration. You may as well use NECO. But ensure you have your result or awaiting result.
- NIN: This is the second most important thing you should have. Although the process of getting this is somehow stressful and takes a while because of our slow system. But you can always get it at the nearest local government council near you. Although it is meant to be free, if you actually want it fast, you may be charged some amount of money. Mind you, there have been some speculations that the NIN might not even be one of the criteria for JAMB registration again, but to be on the safe side, do it before time.
- Money: Yea! This is very important ooo. JAMB form is not free, in fact, nothing is free even in Freetown. So you should budget to have about 8,000 Naira for the form and other miscellaneous.
- Phone number: After you have your money ready. You will need an active phone number. Because it is through this number that your profile code will be sent to you as SMS. You don’t need to have a phone. You can always use anybody’s phone, but ensure that the SIM card used is yours. If you do not have one for yourself, you can always get it even though it is expensive now, it may cost you about 3000-5000 Naira due to the new government policy about NIN depending on your location.
- E-mail address: You should also have an active easy to remember E-mail address. This will be requested at the point of registration and all information from JAMB will b communicated through the mail. We recommend you use a Gmail or Yahoo mail.
- E-Pin: You are going to buy this at any accredited banks or CBT centre after you have your NIN and profile code.
- Profile Code: The Next is to create your profile code after you have gotten all the above requirements ready. You may visit this page if you want to create or retrieve your lost JAMB profile code perhaps you have it before.
