The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) 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.

This is to facilitate a hitch-free 2022 UTME/DE registration exercise by ensuring that there is no difficulty whatsoever in the creation of profiles by candidates, especially in a situation whereby many of them would be sending their requests via just one USSD code as hitherto the case.

In essence, the 55019 and 66019 are to be used to create their profiles for registration by candidates sitting the 2022/23 UTME/DE. As usual, 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.

Every candidate who desires to purchase the e-PIN for JAMB 2022 registration would have to pay the sum of N4,700 as the total cost of the e-PIN ( which is N3,500 for the e-PIN as subsidised by the Federal Government, N500 for the compulsory reading text which is paid to the publisher, and N700 regulated service charge for CBT centres), which candidates used to pay directly to the centres, but would now be paid along with the cost of the e-PINs by all candidates.

The Board would later transmit all accrued entitlements to respective CBT centres on a weekly basis or any time frame
agreeable to respective centres, to curtail all noticeable infractions.

Also, in the new development, JAMB has introduced the use of WhatsApp as additional support and complaint platform. With this extra platform, candidates and other stakeholders would have the benefit of instant messaging and solutions to whatever query they might have regarding any of the operational processes of the Board.

To this end, ASD Technologies, the developer of the WhatsApp solution announced that the platform would provide help with such things as “step-by-step” registration procedure, for instance, as well as providing a feedback mechanism for effective service delivery.

The platform is not meant to replace but complement the existing ticketing system, thereby expanding access to critical services, among others. As at this time, JAMB is yet to announce the Whatsapp number to be used for the support.

The information above was published in its weekly bulletin for FEBRUARY 7, 2022
