JAMB organises Nigeria’s biggest entrance examination. Every year millions of students register to participate in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) or the Direct Entry exams (DE).

In our previous guide, we explained the steps involved in registering JAMB profile.

However, mistakes are inevitable. We know several individuals will end up making mistake either in the spelling or arrangement of their name.

First of all you need to remember that the correct format for arranging your name is: Surname First name Middle Name. For example, Dele Aishat Amaka. That is, if your surname is Dele, your first name is Aishat and your middle name is Dele.
