Are you looking for a self -registration outlet for JAMB registration instead of staying in crowded places or in qeue all day without getting it done. No need to worry because in this article I will be showing you some basic steps on how to get it done.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has introduced self-registration outlets in Abuja and Lagos for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) examinations.This system was introduced to ultimately reduce the crowds at computer-based test centres (CBTs) during the registration.
The JAMB board stated that “This system would, in the long run, reduce the crowds at CBT centres in these cities,” JAMB also said in a bulletin. “The conception of this noble idea is to, besides advancing the digital competence of candidates who feel they can do the registration on their own, expand the registration access points in line with COVID-19 protocols.”
JAMB said it was leveraging on the digital competence of its increasing number of computer-savvy candidates to ease registration processes.The board said the service provider, Bankfort, expressed optimism about the immense potential of the seamless registration mode, adding that it is the norm rather than the exception in more-developed climes.Also, JAMB said it has adopted 66019 as an additional and optional USSD code, besides the 55019 code that had been in operation since 2018, for UTME/DE registration and other essential services offered by the board.
“In essence, the 55019 and 66019 are to be used to create their profiles for registration by candidates sitting the 2022/23 UTME/DE,” JAMB said.
The examination body noted that the new ussd code was introduced to facilitate a hitch-free 2022 UTME/DE registration where candidates do not experience any difficulty in creating their profiles.

All candidates are required to send their National Identification Number (NIN) via either of these USSD codes for their details to be pulled from the NIMC database before they proceed to any accredited centre for biometric capturing.
