Can I get my JAMB profile code through email?
Yes, you can get your JAMB profile code through email. Profile codes are ten-digit numbers that have often time been accessed via USSD. But now, you can access your profile code from your email. First, note that your profile code has to first be generated by dialing this code—*55019*1*NIN#. Otherwise, you can send your NIN to 55019 (OR 66019) in this format—NIN (SPACE BAR) your eleven-digit NIN. So, the result should look like this—NIN 22220000111.
On doing that, you will be forwarded a profile code that is a necessary requirement for your JAMB registration. Whatever CBT center you register at will request that you provide the code.
Some of the issues that could arise while you go about the generation of this profile code include the following;
- Service timeout: This mostly occurs as a result of bad network connection.
- Used NIN: This issue occurs when someone has previously used the NIN to run through their JAMB registration. You have to ensure that you use your NIN and not someone else’s. Another issue that could arise from the stem of NIN is when someone registered with the number used the previous year for registration. To solve this issue, ensure that you generate your JAMB profile code with the same mobile number you used last year.
- JAMB profile code cannot be obtained via USSD.
- When the NIN you entered has not been validated or verified by NIMC.
The deal with profile codes is that they can be used again if the person is writing JAMB again after the first time it was used. Note that it can only be used by that person.
After getting your profile code, you can then go to any JAMB CBT center proximal to you. With that profile code, you can proceed to finish the registration process after buying your ePIN.
