2. Pay for JAMB E-PIN with your JAMB profile code and NIN.
This payment can be done at JAMB accredited centres, approved banks and NIPOST.
Where To Buy JAMB ePIN For Registration
To Start your registration, you need to buy JAMB E-Pin which replaced the Scratch Card system previously used by JAMB.
You can buy JAMB E-PIN by using Remita or Quickteller.
I have personally helped over 8 candidates to get their UTME E-PIN using these platforms.
Some of the locations to buy 2020 JAMB E-Pins are as follows:
- First City Monument Bank (FCMB)
- Four Mobile Money Operators: Paga, e-Tranzact (PocketMoni), TEASYPay and Packway Projects (Readycash)

- Two online Payment Platforms: SystemSpecs (Remita) and InterSwitch (Quickteller)
- POS (Citi-Serve)
- ATMs of banks listed in 5C (i) above (InterSwitch)
- USSD (NIBSS & ERCAS) for mobile banking
- Nigerian Embassies in Abidjan, Accra, Addis Ababa, Buea, Cotonou, Jeddah, Johannesburg and London
DUTIES OF PARTICIPATING BANKS/OUTLETS
- Collect the Proﬁle Code from candidate’s phone
- Collect payment and vend ePIN by SMS to candidate’s phone
- Facilitate POS Payment, if necessary
- Issue Evidence of Payment
- Collect Centre Service Fees, if requested by the CBT Centre
HOW TO RECOVER LOST ePIN AFTER PAYMENT
I. If ePIN is not Received or Lost, send [UTMEPIN] or [DEPIN] to 55019 for UTME or DE respectively from the unique number
ii. The ePIN would then be retrieved and delivered on the candidate’s unique number
Note: AFTER SUCCESSFUL PAYMENT AND OBTAINING ePIN, CANDIDATE SHOULD PROCEED TO ANY OF THE JAMB ACCREDITED CBT CENTRES TO COMPLETE HIS/HER REGISTRATION
3. Proceed to JAMB accredited centres to fill your JAMB form online
After you must have obtained your NIN from any of the enrolment centres, you can now proceed to JAMB accredited centres to fill JAMB form and complete your JAMB 2020/2021 registration.
HOW TO REGISTER COMPLETE JAMB REGISTRATION AT CBT CENTRES
The candidate presents the ePIN at any JAMB accredited CBT Centre for completion of registration. The name of the candidate as typed by the candidate on his/her phone when registering the proﬁle comes up automatically on the input of the e-PIN by the CBT centre
Candidates are to:
i. Pay NOT more than N700 as Service Charge to the CBT Centre
ii. Provide Biodata including Date of Birth, Nationality, State of Origin, Local Government, Gender, e-mail address, among others
iii. Provide choice of institutions and programmes (disciplines)
iv. Provide qualiﬁcation with grades and dates, if not awaiting result
v. Upload relevant certiﬁcates, if not awaiting result
vi. O/L and or A/L grades are to be provided by candidates. Candidates who are awaiting results should supply the results online as soon as they are available on JAMB’s portal. No recommendations from any Institution will be considered by JAMB if the candidate has not supplied his/her result on the portal of JAMB

xv. There will be no ofﬂine registration, as all the accredited CBT centres have been empowered for real time online registration.
No candidate should register at any centre other than the accredited CBT centre and JAMB State ofﬁces.
Any candidate who is registered outside approved centres will be identiﬁed and disqualiﬁed.
After you complete your registration, the CBT centre will provide for you (at no extra cost) the prescribed reading text and the CD containing e-brochure, Syllabus (e-syllabus) for the examination).
Can I Register For JAMB 2020 With The Same Email I Used In 2019
Yes, but I will advise you to use another email address.
If you sat for JAMB last year and you are given a course you don’t like but you decided to go for the course while you re-apply with JAMB 2020, then you should register with another email address.
If you use the same email address with 2019 JAMB profile, then problem may arise.
What if you want to login to your JAMB 2019 to print your admission letter or do other things and the same email is attached to your 2020 JAMB profile.
You can also imagine a situation where you want to check your name on JAMB matriculation list portal with your email address with two profiles attached?
So, I will advise you create another email address for 2020 registration. Also, don’t allow anyone to register JAMB 2020 for you with their own email address.
Create your own email address (it takes less than 10minutes to do that!)
Can I Register With Same Phone Number In 2020
According to JAMB, previously used numbers for JAMB Registrations can only be re-used by the same candidate who used it in 2019 (Not another candidate).
Previously Used Number is a GSM Telephone Number (SIM) used for Profile Code Creation, e-PIN
Vending and Registration in Previous Registration Exercises.
This can be used for the 2020 Registration ONLY BY THE SAME CANDIDATE.
The Candidate who is using his/her previous number for the second or third time will use the same
profile code to purchase the new e-PIN.
If the Profile Code has been forgotten, the candidate can send RESEND to 55019 and he/she would
recover the Old Profile Code.
In other words, the Old Profile Code can be used by the same candidate to procure the new e-PIN. No
new profile code is required.
However, Candidate cannot change names by using CORRECT on this existing number as this Profile is
already tied to the existing number (typically done before Registration).
Can I Register For JAMB 2020/2021 With 2019 JAMB Profile
Candidate can register at any JAMB CBT Center with existing Profile (e-Mail, Telephone Number, Profile
code) which cannot be changed.
Existing Profile or already used number cannot be transferred to another candidate.
When Is JAMB Registration 2020/2021 Closing
JAMB 2020/2021 registration form will close on February 17, 2020.
This is according to the JAMB registrar when speaking on how the registration process will go in 2020.
Chairman of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Dr. Emmanuel Ndukwe has urged candidates planning to take the 2020 UTME to register now while there is no pressure at the Centres.
Speaking on extending the registration deadline, he said “I don’t foresee an extension. We have to stick to the date we have given to the public. If we start now thinking about extension, it doesn’t portray our seriousness.
“Some of the places we visited had many systems but few candidates. Let the candidates out there be mindful of the examination dates. I don’t foresee any extension of dates,” he said.
See full details JAMB registration closing date here.
Can I Register With Awaiting Result?
Definitely! You can register for JAMB 2020/2021 with awaiting result. If you are sitting for the coming WAEC/NECO examination or your WAEC GCE 2018 result has not been released, you can still register for JAMB.
Is It Compulsory To Write JAMB Mock 2020/2021
No, JAMB mock 2020/2021 is not compulsory.
If you don’t sit for the mock examination, you will be allowed to write the real examination.
The mock examination is just to help you test how prepared you are for the upcoming examination.
It is not compulsory and you won’t get additional marks in your real examination for sitting for the mock.
Can I Register For JAMB 2020/2021 In SS1
SS1 students in various secondary schools in Nigeria may not be allowed to register for JAMB 2020.
Oloyede said, “It is difficult to say the exact number of applicants we are expecting this time. We expect to crash the number because many of those who are taking the forms are not even prepared or qualified for the exam”.
“Some are SS1 students, who are just trying, contributing N5,000 unduly to our purse. We are putting in some checks to make people who want to apply to be minimally qualified”.
“We are not interested in the money. We are interested in having adequate preparations for those who are genuine students.”

- Registration fee for candidates from the eight foreign countries is $20 or its equivalent in each of the eight countries.
