• To create a new profile, Send the following Surname FirstName MiddleName as a text message (SMS) to 55019. (Use a phone number you will be using to register for your JAMB profile, use an authentic number, because JAMB will use this number to send you messages)

• Make sure the names are in the specified order and separated from each other by a space as shown below e.g. Adewale Chukwu Adamu

• However, if you already have a profile with JAMB (that is, you already have a JAMB profile) you can choose to update your existing profile that is yet to purchase the UTME/DE PIN, Send Correct Surname FirstName MiddleName as SMS from your unique GSM number to 55019.

• It is very important to note here, that the names MUST be in the specified order and separated from each other by a space. e.g. Correct Adegoke Chukwu Adamu
