Why You May Not Want to Use Last JAMB Profile/Code This Year

Why May Not Want to Use Last JAMB Profile/Code for This Year UTME
Official JAMB logo
I gave you a comprehensive verdict about the rumor or information (so to say) that, UTME applicants should not use their last year's profiles or codes to obtain this year's UTME. The post was well shared and people appreciated it. JAMB wants you to use your old profile. Nothing is practically wrong with that.

However, someone called me to ask for a solution to an issue as a result of using last year's profile. This is why I thought writing this piece will give you more insights into the dilemma.

Starting from the 2022 admission year, every candidate who had done JAMB or processed admission in the year 2021 or before will be forced to use the same profile used last year. In other words, you can't change your profile.

Let me explain.

JAMB asked you to use your NIN to get the profile code last year. Consequently, the information on your National ID card is exported for your JAMB registration. You must know by now that it's only one NIN that can be issued to every Nigerian - meaning you can't change your NIN.

Because you can't change your NIN, you will still use the same NIN to get this year's profile code, which will be the same as last year's profile code. With this, you're using the same JAMB profile, used last year, for this year's admission too.

How to Get the Last Profile Code to Buy JAMB Form/PIN

The most costless way is to log into your last JAMB profile and on the top of the page, you will see the 10-digit number. That is your profile code.

Copy that and proceed to buy your JAMB form online or at a café, Bank, NIPOST, or CBT center. They will ask for your profile/confirmation code before they can vend your e-PIN or PIN to register with.

I covered other quick ways to retrieve the last profile code here. Make sure you can still log in to that last year's profile with your last email linked to the JAMB portal and password sent to your email.

Last Year Profile Code Will Tie You to Your Last Bio-Data

If you use the last profile (well you don't have any other choice), you’re signing the terms that you want JAMB to use all your personal details used for the last UTME  for this year also. In other words, you want your names (and their arrangement) the same as last year. You want the same date of birth, gender, state, and local government of origin.

If you want to make a change to any of the above, kindly read to the next section.

A Case Study: A candidate used last year's profile but wished to change the local government of origin. After the printing of this year's registration slip, she noticed the same old local government origin reappeared.

That’s what using the last profile code means!

Using Last Profile Doesn’t Tie You With Schools and Courses

Don’t mix things up. The fact that the old profile gives you the same personal details doesn’t mean the same institutions and courses.

JAMB will still open your profile for the CBT center to choose a new set of universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, and innovation enterprises institutions. You will be allowed, as well, to make new choices of subject combinations.

Meanwhile, if you'd been offered admission (and accepted it) on the last profile, the guide, "I Accepted the Last Admission, Will I Be Admitted Again?" will be of help.

What To Do If You Had Errors on the Last Year's Profile

If you had used last year's profile and later realized you're to make some corrections to your personal data, you will find my guide in, "UTME/DE: Errors with Name, Email, Date of Birth, Gender, Local Government, Subjects Combination" resourceful.

The post leaves nothing out if you must make some changes to your JAMB profile.

    1. Nobody used email for this year JAMB yet. You will use the same email used last year if you used the same profile code used last year. And there is nothing wrong with that.

    1. If you've linked your email with JAMB portal, last year, log in to that portal and print your result from there.
