The council said the system would ultimately reduce crowds at computerized testing centers (CBTs) in cities.
“This system would, in the long term, reduce crowds at CBT centers in these cities,” JAMB said in a bulletin. “The design of this lofty idea is to, in addition to advancing the digital proficiency of applicants who feel they can do registration on their own, to expand entry points for registration in accordance with COVID-19 protocols .”
JAMB said it needed to use the digital proficiency of its growing number of computer-savvy applicants to make registration processes easier.
How to register yourself:
The council announced that they have adopted the code of numbers 66019 in addition to the 55019 they have been using since 2018 for UTME and DE registrations and other essential services.
The council explained that the idea is to facilitate the 2022 UTME and DE registrations so that there are not many complaints.
The new method will also ensure that users will not have difficulty creating profiles, especially since many people send requests with a single USSD code.
As usual, applicants will send their National Identity Number (NIN) via one of the USSD codes to have their details provided by the National Information Management Commission (NimC) database.
Applicants will then proceed to accredited centers for biometric capture.
The council also said it had worked out arrangements to obtain another USSD code so that it could remove anything that interfered with the creation of profiles.
