    What is JAMB Registration Form e-Pin?

    JAMB e-pin is required to register for UTME. With JAMB e-pin, all the interested candidates will not waste any time in the registration centers.

    According to David Okeme, Chief Commercial Officer of System Specs, the owners of Remita said: “With this development, every candidate seeking admission into higher institutions across the country are guaranteed a pleasurable experience as they can purchase their PINs on Remita at any time of day,”.

    And it was officially confirmed that the UTME form is now available on Remita and Quickteller. I’ve confirmed and tested it. It is working and you can get the pin straight ahead.

    Understand that without the e-pin, no accredited CBT registration center will accept your request.

    How to create JAMB Profile

    Before you can pay for your e-pin, you must get a profile code. Without the profile code, you can’t make payment for the e-pin.

    *. First, create your profile by sending Surname, First Name and Middle Name (where applicable) by SMS to the JAMB shortcode, 55019.

    *. You will receive a confirmation code on the same telephone number which will be used to procure the ePIN. This is the Profile Code. It is a 10-character code.
