Is it true that without National Identification Number, one cannot register JAMB 2020?
Yes, it is now compulsory for all JAMB candidates to have their National Identification Number (NIN) before they would be able to register JAMB 2020. Try as much as you can to get your NIN now.
What is NIN?
The National Identification Number (NIN) is a set of numbers issued by National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) assigned to an individual upon successful enrolment. Enrolment consists of the recording of an individual’s demographic data and capture of the ten (10) fingerprints, head-to-shoulder facial picture and digital signature, which are all used to cross-check existing data in the National Identity Database to confirm that there is no previous entry of the same data.
The aim of NIN to JAMB and their Candidates
The board’s spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, said on Tuesday that the aim was to ensure the biometric and other necessary details of a candidate were captured, to check examination malpractice.
What will JAMB candidates use the NIN to do?
The JAMB will, during the 2020 registration exercise, use the National Identity Number (NIN) generated after successful registration with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC). This includes the capturing of biometric and other necessary details for the registration of all prospective candidates.
Candidates are enjoined to register as the board will no longer be responsible for the capturing of candidates’ biometrics ahead of the examination, as all information required will be uploaded from the data captured by the NIMC.
“Henceforth, the NIN will be compulsory for the UTME registration,” Mr Benjamin said.
JAMB arrangements towards efficient registration of candidates NIN by NIMC
According to Benjamin, the board has made an adequate arrangement with the NIMC for prospective candidates to be registered at the examination centres or with its licensed agents.
Since I have NIN before, should I still register another one?
According to Benjamin, for such candidates who had registered and had acquired the NIN before attaining the age of 16, they would be required to update their NIN registration status before registering for the UTME.
How can I retrieve my lost or misplaced NIN
In case a candidate lost or misplaced his NIN, the candidate can retrieve it by either going to the NIMC office; its licensed agent or dial *346# (USSD code on the SIM card number earlier used to register for the NIN).
Candidate’s name as stated on the NIMC database will be the same as the one on JAMB’s data registration form.
