JAMB now to hold UTME Mock May 20, Gives Direction on How to Generate Profile Code

The Joint Matriculation Adminisyration Board (JAMB) has disclosed that the 2021 Mock Examination earlier scheduled to hold, on Saturday, April 30, 2021, has now been rescheduled to hold on Thursday , May 20, 2021.

Acvording to the examination body, the change of date is owing to some ongoing adjustments in the Board’s operational processes. The change, however, would not affect other schedules including the date for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination fixed for 5th to 19th June, 2021.

A statement issued by JAMB’s Public Affairs Officer, Fabian Benjamin, candidates who had registered and had chosen to sit the Mock and other critical stakeholders are to note this change of date.

Similarly, it is necessary to inform all stakeholders that the 2021 UTME/DE Registration exercise is ongoing and it is to end on May 15, 2021. The Board has, however, noted with concern that some candidates in trying to generate their profiles are sending their details wrongly to 55019.

The right process is to send the word “NIN” allow one space in between, then insert the eleven digits NIN number to 55019 e.g. NIN 00000000000. Any other process is wrong and would not generate the profile code for the candidate. It is also necessary for the candidate to know that only the SIM that is linked to his/her NIN can be used to send the NIN to 55019.
