JAMB Mock Examination (Optional) 2024:

To assist interested candidates in preparing for the exam and familiarizing themselves with the CBT setting, the board will conduct a mock exam at authorized CBT centers.

We encourage registering candidates to indicate their interest in taking the mock exam.

Note: Do not pay for the mock exam until JAMB assigns you to a CBT center.

Only JAMB authorized CBT centers can conduct examinations.

How to Enroll for JAMB Without an NIN Number:

Is it possible to register for JAMB without an NIN number?

Many candidates frequently ask if they can register for JAMB without an NIN number because they have not obtained their NIN numbers.

Due to the time-consuming nature of NIN enrollment, candidates often find themselves waiting for their turn.

If the JAMB registration deadline is rapidly approaching and you haven’t obtained your NIN, a crucial question arises: “How can I register for JAMB without an NIN number?”

Unfortunately, it is not possible to register for JAMB without an NIN number. The JAMB registration process entails sending your NIN and the corresponding number to 55019 to create a profile after linking your SIM.

Without the NIN, creating a JAMB profile becomes impossible, and consequently, JAMB registration cannot proceed. The only recourse is to anticipate a potential extension of the JAMB registration deadline, allowing time to acquire the NIN number for enrollment in JAMB UTME and direct entry.

If you have read through all the provided information, you should now possess the necessary knowledge.
