JAMB Registers Over 1.2 Million Candidates For 2019 UTME
The board also reiterated that the phone numbers candidates used for their profile code registration, electronic pin vending and registration for the previous UTME, can only be used for the 2019 UTME by the same candidates only and no other person.
JAMB equally added that candidates using their previous phone numbers for the second or third time will use the same profile code to purchase the electronic pin. If the profile code has been forgotten, the candidate can retrieve it through a text message. In other words, the old profile code can be used by the same candidate to procure the new electronic pin.
