Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board JAMB says candidates for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME can now send their National Identity Number, NIN, from any SIM of their choice provided the SIM has not been used by another candidate to register for UTME/DE in the past.
This was contrary to JAMB’s earlier statement that only the SIM that was linked to a candidate NIN could be used to send their NIN to 55019.
In the board’s weekly bulletin published on its website today, JAMB explained that the right process is to send the word NIN, allow one space in between and then insert the eleven digits NIN number and send it to 55019.
JAMB also announced that more than three hundred thousand candidates have been registered for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME and also registered more than eight thousand Direct Entry DE candidates.
