JAMB Added 66019 With 55019 Code For Profile Creation

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

This is to make the 2022 UTME/DE registration exercise hitch-free. By ensuring that there is no difficulty whatsoever in creating JAMB 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 summary, 55019 and 66019 USSD are used by candidates to create their profiles for JAMB registration for those sitting the 2022/23 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.

The Board had earlier given indications that it was perfecting arrangements to adopt 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. It is an effort to eliminate all bottlenecks associated with the creation of profiles

Finally, be reminded that the registration for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the Direct Entry (DE) will commence on February 12.
