The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) informed applicants for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that the phone numbers, which they used for their profile code registration, electronic pin vending and registration for the previous UTME, can only be used for the 2019 UTME by the same candidates, not other persons.
The information was issued in a statement on the same day (Monday) that the apex exam body announced that it has registered 1,205,187 candidates for the exam, which is scheduled to take place between Saturday, March 16 and Saturday, March 23.
The statement issued yesterday from the office of the Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, also said only accredited Computer-Based Test Centres would do valid UTME registration and serve as examination centres.
The board said: “Previously used numbers for JAMB registrations can only be re-used by the same candidate, not another candidate. A previously used number is a GSM telephone number used for profile code creation, electronic pin vending and registration in previous registration exercises. This can be used for the 2019 registration only by the same candidate.
“The candidate who is using his or her previous number for the second or third time will use the same profile code to purchase the new electronic pin. If the profile code has been forgotten, the candidate can retrieve it through a text message. In other words, the old profile code can be used by the same candidate to procure the new electronic pin.”
