WHAT IS THE DEADLINE TO GENERATE JAMB PROFILE CODES FOR 2022/2023 UTME/DE REGISTRATION ?
In line with the directives from National Identity Management Commission NIMC, to resolve issues regarding profile codes initiation and NIN via firstname.lastname@example.org. It was earlier announced that on the 19th of March ,2022 the profile code generation will close. Since the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB has insisted that JAMB UTME registration for 2022 will close on the 26th of March, 2022, they will be no extension of this date . This means that the profile code generation may likely close on or before 26th of March, 2022. JAMB has so far registered 1.4 million Candidates for 2022 UTME/DE. Candidates are expected to use this window and finished all pending registrations.
WHAT IS THE DEADLINE TO PROCURE JAMB E-PINS FOR 2022/2023 UTME/DE REGISTRATION ?
The deadline to procure JAMB e-pins for 2022 according to the board has been announced to be 26th March, 2022. This is because the time frame is the only window allotted by important authorities to the board to conduct the exercise.
“According to JAMB, before the commencement of registration or examination for any given year, all public examination bodies are invited to a roundtable where they are expected to agree on the timetable of activities for each examination agency and which must be strictly adhered to. So it is practically impossible for the Board to even contemplate any extension of registration as sister examination bodies such as WAEC NECO and NABTEB, have their allotted time which the Board cannot usurp.”
This means that after 26th march, 2022. You cannot get JAMB e-pins again with your profile codes. So candidates are advised to do everything on time by getting their NIN ,generate the profile code and then purchase the JAMB E-PIN and complete the registration on or before 26th March, 2022.
