JAMB introduced the use of USSD code in order to refund candidates charged unduly for profile codes and for all those experiencing problems in generating their profile code for registration.
According to Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the registrar of the board, he said that the USSD code will commence from Friday, April 30th (which has already started). He disclosed this during a news briefing at the board's headquarter in Bwari, Abuja, on Monday.
He opted for this process as a result of the way candidates were exploited by service providers. He discovered that for each trial to generate a profile code, candidates are deducted 50 Naira SMS charges without a positive response and these charges do not come to JAMB but to the service providers.
Candidates can generate their profile codes for UTME registration by dialing *55019*1*NIN#. I know that some candidates are already aware of this new process but so many candidates are still yet to know. Therefore, I advise that this message should be shared to all candidates.
