In this guide, you’ll learn how to create JAMB profile for the 2020 UTME and DE registration.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB), is the body in charge of conducting one of the most important examinations in Nigeria.
Generally, students enrol either as Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates or as Direct Entry (DE) candidates. Either way, you must start by creating your profile using any of the methods we’ll be sharing in a few lines.
It is after you have created your profile you’ll receive the profile confirmation code or profile code, as some people prefer to call it.
Without the profile confirmation code or Profile code, you cannot purchase the ePIN, which you very much need to continue your registration.
