2024 JAMB Candidate NIN Registration: Application Guidelines and Requirements

The National Identification Number (NIN) is a compulsory prerequisite for prospective candidates aiming to enroll in the 2024 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Functioning as a distinctive identifier, the NIN connects all your data within the National Identity Database (NIDB), serving the purpose of identity verification for various contexts, including school admissions, NYSC registration, and passport applications.

It is imperative to secure your NIN promptly if you haven’t done so already, given that the 2024 UTME registration is imminent. This article outlines the steps to register and acquire your NIN before the designated deadline. Additionally, guidance is provided on how to prepare for your exams using the JAMB CBT mobile app and JAMB CBT computer software.

What is NIN?

NIN stands for National Identification Number, an 11-digit alphanumeric code assigned to individuals upon completion of the enrollment process into the NIDB. Uniquely tied to each person, the NIN is non-transferrable, non-shareable, and cannot be duplicated by any other individual. In the event of an individual’s demise, the NIN is retired upon submission of a death certificate to the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).

The NIN serves as the nexus for consolidating all your information in the National Identity Database (NIDB), encompassing biometric, demographic, and other personal data. Its utility extends to confirming or establishing identity for various services and transactions, such as initiating a bank account, applying for a driver’s license, or participating in elections.
