Legit.ng reports that every year, JAMB conducts the UTME in Nigeria. A student's score will determine whether he or she will be admitted to higher institution (university, polytechnics, college of education, and others).

Getting JAMB profile code

Creating or reactivating profile code is straightforward as long as UTME candidates follow JAMB's directive.

If everything is done correctly, after some minutes or immediately, a candidate will receive an SMS containing his or her data and the unique profile code.

Candidates are encouraged to use their personal number because JAMB will be communicating with each candidate through the number provided.

Tips to excel in JAMB 2024

Meanwhile, ahead of the start of the 2024 UTME, the board chairman of MIMS Educational Services, Lagos, Adesegun Ogungbayi, urged candidates to create a study schedule.

Speaking to Legit.ng, among other advice, Ogungbayi counselled the admission seekers to form study groups and practice time management.

He said:

"Apart from the completion of the syllabus, candidates need to create a study schedule till the examination day and time. They also need to organise all their study materials towards the commencement of the exams, set specific goals, prioritise weak areas, and practice past questions.
"Other things they need to do is seek clarification from teachers, form study groups with fellow students, use online resources, practice time management through the use of CBT apps or CBT centres and stay positive and confident till the examination is written."
