Check out the complete guide on how to register for JAMB 2021 – The 10 Steps to Register Jamb Without Mistakes.
Requirements for JAMB Registration 2021
The requirements for the 2021 JAMB registration are listed hereunder:
- Personal e-mail address and mobile phone number
- Create your JAMB profile.
- JAMB ePIN registration payment
- National Identification Number (NIN)
- Visit any accredited CBT centers with your personal details and the profile PIN or Code
1. Create A Valid Jamb Email
This is the first and basic step to kick start Jamb 2021/2022 Registration. In a layman’s word, eMail is an address you can use to get Messages Online. An Email could be Google mail (Gmail), Yahoo mail, etc.
It is very easy to create an Email Account for Jamb. I highly recommend Gmail; It is very easy to create and will enable you get personalized results on Google Search
Please, don’t use slang or street name in your Email. Let your real name and surname appear in your email address (email@example.com).
2. Get NIN For Jamb
Jamb profile was introduced a few years ago and the use of National Identification Number (NIN) was introduced in 2020. NIN was Cancelled for 2020 JAMB but has been re-introduced.
National Identification Number (NIN) is now Compulsory for SIM Card Users in Nigeria (MTN, GLO, Airtel, 9Mobile and Smile). It is also compulsory for Jamb 2021 Registration.
You won’t regret enrolling NIN since it is important for Scholarships application, banks documents, etc. The earlier you register NIN, the lesser the pressure you may face when Jamb registration begins.
3. Create a Jamb Profile
The very first and most important step in Jamb 2021/2022 registration is to create a Jamb Profile. It is very compulsory for you to register your profile before obtaining Jamb 2021 Registration Form.
Apart from Jamb registration, you need Jamb profile for Jamb online result checking, Admission status checking, Admission letter printing, Accessing Jamb caps and so on.

6. Visit A Jamb CBT Center
In our time, it was Cybercafes. Am sorry, you never enjoyed that experience. It is not my fault anyway. Right now, you can only register Jamb in approved CBT centers.
Jamb releases the list of accredited CBT centers yearly; more centres are being added while a few gets banned. I have compiled the CBT Centre list and made it available for you in PDF. You can download and go through them to decide the most convenient one for you.
At the Accredited Jamb CBT Centre, you will be given a CD containing the following for free:
- e-brochure showing guidelines on admission detailing list of tertiary institutions and available courses.
- Syllabus (e-syllabus) for the examination.
- Step by step guide on completion of the application form.
- A video message from the Registrar of JAMB and a demo on how to use eight (8) keys for UTME examination without a mouse.
Jamb Registration At CBT Centres
- Pay N700 as Service Charge to the CBT Centre
- Provide Biodata including Date of Birth, Nationality, State of Origin, Local Government, Gender, e-mail address, etc
- Provide choice of institutions and programs (disciplines)
- Provide qualification with grades and dates, if not awaiting result

There will be no offline registration, as all the accredited CBT centres have been empowered for real-time online registration. No candidate should register at any centre other than the accredited CBT centre and JAMB State-Offices. Any candidate who is registered outside approved centres will be identified and disqualified
Many students lose admission last year because of mistakes in the details supplied to Jamb and school of choice. I am begging you in the name of God, do not supply details that will land you into trouble. Check your documents and make sure that there is a concord between the subject and predicate.
Jamb Optional Mock Exam
As was done last year, the Board will also conduct a mock examination in all the accredited CBT centres to prepare and familiarise INTERESTED Candidates with the CBT environment.
Interested candidates are advised to indicate their interest in the mock examination during 2021 Jamb registration.
7. Go For 10 Fingers Biometric
Still, at the Registration centre, the four things below will happen:
- Jamb will take all your fingerprint
- Your O-level or A-level result will be submitted.
- You can use awaiting result.
- You can use two sittings. I.e, one awaiting and one complete result or two complete results.
8. Collect Your Jamb E-Slip
As a big boy or girl level, collect your slip and go through it. Begin to Imagine how to blast.
9. Collect Other Things
Collect other necessary things. Ask them, is there any other thing? Don’t stop asking questions.
10. Done With Registration
