Step 1: Obtain your National Identification Number (NIN):

Initiate your preparation by ensuring you have your National Identification Number (NIN) ready. This serves as a foundational requirement for the upcoming UTME/DE registration process.

NIN Requirement for UTME/DE Registration and Other Preparatory Steps

  1. Acquire Your National Identification Number (NIN): The National Identification Number (NIN) is now mandatory for UTME/DE registration. If you haven’t obtained your NIN yet and plan to register for the UTME/DE, we strongly recommend getting it ready. For a step-by-step guide on acquiring your NIN, visit this link: NIN Application Guidelines and follow the provided instructions.
  2. Prepare a Registered Phone Number for Profile Code Creation: Prior to the registration commencement, candidates must generate a profile code by sending their NIN through a registered phone number to a designated shortcode. It is essential to have a valid and registered phone line for this purpose. All future SMS updates from JAMB will be sent to this registered phone number. Candidates are advised to obtain a personal and registered phone line, preferably an MTN line if they don’t have one already.
  3. Secure a Free Email Address: In the event of losing your phone number, having a registered email address serves as a backup to access your profile and receive crucial messages from JAMB. It is mandatory to provide an email address during your JAMB registration. Obtaining an email address is a simple and free process; you can create one at Gmail.com.
  4. Decide on Your Desired Course of Study: This is the opportune time to make decisions about the course you want to study. It is crucial to finalize this before the registration period begins to avoid rushing during the limited registration time. Choose a course that aligns with your passion and academic aptitude. For a successful registration and increased admission chances, consider having alternative (2nd choice) courses in mind.
  1. Select Your Preferred Institution: Just as in choosing a course, it is crucial to decide in advance on the institution you wish to apply to. Criteria for selection should be based on whether the chosen institution offers your desired course, its admission requirements, school fees, and personal preferences like location. To ensure a successful registration, consider having alternative options such as polytechnics or colleges of education.
  2. Understand the Subject Combination for Your Chosen Course: After determining your course and institution, familiarize yourself with the subject combinations required for admission to study that particular course. Many students make the mistake of selecting incorrect subject combinations, which can hinder admission chances. Use “The JAMB Brochure” before registration begins to ascertain the correct subject combinations for various courses. Choosing the right combination is crucial to avoid jeopardizing your admission prospects.
  3. Seek Guidance: If you find yourself confused or in need of guidance regarding your choice of course, institution, subject combination, or any other aspect related to UTME/DE registration, don’t hesitate to seek assistance. At Studentclass, we have a team of experienced and qualified counselors ready to help you make informed decisions. Contact us through our website, email, phone number, or social media platforms for personalized assistance in achieving your academic goals.
  4. Commence UTME/DE Preparation: Lastly, but importantly, start your preparation for the UTME/DE exams. Don’t wait until the registration begins to begin your studies. The earlier you start, the better. Utilize past questions, textbooks, online resources, and our JAMB CBT App to practice and enhance your knowledge and skills. Familiarize yourself with the exam format, structure, time management, and strategies to excel. Useful tips and guides can be found on our website, Studentclass.
