What is ‘Registering 2020 UTME with Phone’ all about?

In the first step for Registering 2020 JAMB/UTME, JAMB instructed candidates to use their mobile phone to start their registration. This doesn’t mean UTME candidates will use their phone to complete the registration.

UTME candidates will use their mobile phone to  start creating their profile on JAMB. Candidates should note that JAMB will send all vital information to phone number used to create the profile. UTME candidates should also ensure they do NOT hand over their cellphone to any person/agent to create their profile or receive their confirmation code.

After sending the text message below, JAMB will send you a unique confirmation code. Upon receipt of your confirmation code, take the code with you to any selling point for sales of UTME form (Banks, Online Payments, Mobile money operators, etc.)

How to Create Profile for UTME 2020?

To create a new profile, Send Surname FirstName MiddleName as SMS from your unique GSM number to 55019. Ensure the names are in the specified order and separated from each other by a space. e.g. Adewale Chukwu Adamu.

VERY IMPORTANT: Once you send the message above, you will receive a confirmation message. Few minutes later, N50 will be charged upon sending you your confirmation code.

How to Correct Name in JAMB Profile

Did you make Mistake while sending your Names?

To correct error/mistake in name send Correct Surname FirstName MiddleName as SMS from from the same mobile number used in the registration to 55019. Ensure the names are in the specified order and separated from each other by a space. e.g. Correct Adegoke Chukwu Adamu to 55019

VERY IMPORTANT: You can only correct names if you have not used the confirmation code to purchase UTME/DE PIN

Have you Lost or Forgotten your Confirmation Code?

To receive your confirmation code again, Send Resend as SMS from your unique GSM number to 55019. e.g. Resend to 55019

VERY IMPORTANT: This must be sent from the number you used in sending your name.

Do you want to Receive Your Already Purchased UTME Pin?

UTME Candidates: To receive your already Purchased UTME PIN again, Send UTMEPIN as SMS from your unique GSM number to 55019. e.g. utmepin

Direct Entry candidates: To receive your already Purchased Direct Entry PIN again, Send DEPIN as SMS from your unique GSM number to 55019. e.g. depin.

Hello, great job!
I had created a profile on the jamb website and got a code to go to the bank (I registered with my number) but unfortunately on getting to the bank to pay, an issue was encountered and another number was used to generate the e-pin. Now it’s like I have 2 numbers attached to my name. What do you advice I do?
I am yet to go to the CBT centre.

Many thanks in advance.
