Legit.ng gathers that the highest registrations were recorded in Lagos (161,654 candidates) and Kaduna (76,049 candidates).

JAMB also stated that the phone numbers used for profile code registration, electronic pin vending and registration by candidates for the previous UTME, cannot be used by other persons, for the 2019 episode of the examination. According to the board, the phone numbers can only be used by the same candidates.

JAMB further stated that valid UTME registration would be conducted by accredited Computer-Based Test Centres which would also 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.”
