Direct Entry registration would commence from Monday, 20th February, to Thursday, 20th April 2023.
The JAMB 2023 examination will occur from Tuesday, 25th April, to Tuesday, 2nd May 2023. The mock examination date is March 16th, 2023.
The JAMB profile code is a ten (10) unique digit number you must have before registering for the JAMB examination. You will submit this number at the CBT centre for your registration.
Creating a JAMB profile is compulsory for every aspirant. You’d also use the profile login details to access your JAMB CAPS for admission acceptance.
Also, you need to get a National Identification Number (NIN) for your JAMB registration.
It is pretty easy to create your JAMB profile yourself using your phone. You do not need to go to an Internet cafe to do it.
Let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance with your JAMB registration.
