JAMB plans on granting waiver to candidates without SIM card

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has revealed their intention of possibly granting waivers to candidates who do not have a SIM card but wishes to register for the examinations.

This is coming after a directive that mandated the National Identification Number (NIN) for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) and Direct Entry registration.


According to a report from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said

“This year, we are going into full partnership with the National Identification Management Commission (NIMC). Everyone who wants to register with us must have completed their registration with NIMC because this year, all we need is first, your NIN.

"Once you send it to 55019, no name required, we continue from there. We will pull your data from NIMC that’s all.

"We have approached the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy on that and we are hopeful that we will be granted a waiver for those in that category with conditions.”

He said that any telephone number used by applicants to send the NIN automatically becomes the number for all JAMB transactions with the candidate.
