#JAMB Nigerian examination board has made known its plan to adopt ‘66019’ as an additional & optional USSD code besides the ‘55019’ code that had been used since 2018 for UTME/DE registration.
JAMB explained that the initiative was to Unclog and bring about a hitch-free 2022 UTME/DE registration exercise by ensuring that was no difficulty whatsoever in the creation of profiles by prospective candidates candidates, especially in a situation whereby many of them would send requests via one USSD code.
Moreso, Potential candidates for the 2022/23 University Tertiary Matriculation Examination [ UTME ] & Direct Entry Examination [DE] are to use both codes to create their profiles for registration.
In the usual pattern, prospective candidates are also 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.”
JAMB also hinted that it was perfecting arrangements aimed at adopting a self registration process for prospective candidates in Abuja and Lagos, in a bid to eliminate all bottlenecks associated with the registration exercise.
