LOSS Of SIM CARD: JAMB APPROVES ALTERNATIVE MEANS FOR DATA CORRECTION


This essentially is for those who lost their jamb registered phone numbers. They currently have a remedy. See details๐Ÿ‘‰



ADVISORY ON ATTENDING TO CANDIDATES REQUESTING FOR CORRECTION 

OF DATA AND CHANGE OF INSTITUTION/PROGRAMME WHO CLAIM NOT TO 

HAVE ACCESS TO THE SIM CARD USED FOR UTME/DE REGISTRATION 



1. This advisory must be carefully read and implemented alongside the decisions taken during 

a zoom meeting held on July 16, 2020 with CBT centres, JAMB State Coordinators and 

Partners on the introduction of the use of OTP in place of biometrics verification. 


2. The Board introduced the use of OTP (one Time Password) which is sent to a candidate’s 

registered phone number in place of biometrics verification to prevent the spread of the 

Covid-19. The OTP must be presented before correction of data can be carried out on 

the candidate’s UTME/DE registration.


3. Some candidates claim they no longer have access to the same SIM which they registered 

with for the UTME/DE.


4. The following is the process of how such a candidate can be allowed to effect correction 

of data on his/her UTME/DE registration.


a. The candidate must approach any of the JAMB Offices in person (not by proxy) 

as this service can only be carried out in JAMB Offices/Professional Test Centres .



(PTCs) Nationwide;

b. At the JAMB Office, the candidate should supply any of registration number, email 

and GSM number which the candidate used to register for the UTME or DE;


c. The JAMB Official attending to the candidate directs the system to RESEND the 

OTP through email;



d. The candidate goes and prints a copy of the email which contain the OTP;



e. The candidate affixes a copy of his/her passport photograph to the printed email 

and presents it to the JAMB Official;



f. The JAMB Official after confirming that the same person whose picture is affixed 

on the printed email is the same person whose picture is displayed on the screen 

proceeds to complete the correction of data.



g. A copy of the printed email with the candidate’s affixed passport must be retained 

at the JAMB Office for any candidate whose correction of data was carried out 

with OTP sent through email.


h. All subsisting COVID-19 protocols must be fully observed.


NOTE: ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD CORRECTION OF DATA BE DONE BY 

PROXY. 


 Thank you.
