New Method to Change JAMB Names, DOB, LGA, etc.

There is a new method to change details such as names, Date of birth, Local government area, etc. on JAMB unlike how it used to be done. This happened since the introduction of NIN for JAMB registration.

Therefore, Once you generate the profile code, any subsequent corrections on the NIN platform do not automatically reflect on the JAMB portal. Instead, the names initially generated with the profile code remain after registration.

To be able to change Names, DOB, or LGA on JAMB, you must follow the new method as explained in this article!

New Method to Change JAMB Names, DOB, LGA

During the admissions process, candidates must supply their full name, date of birth, and other personal information. The information submitted during the admissions process is used to create the candidate’s admission letter and to authenticate the candidate’s identification at the matriculation ceremony. The name on the admission letter is used to identify the individual during the admissions process and at the matriculation ceremony.

Candidates should ensure that the information submitted throughout the admissions process is correct and matches their identification credentials. Any error or contradiction in the information submitted can jeopardize the candidate’s admissions process.

JAMB stated in another release.

The previous practice of correcting names at a JAMB office after generating a profile code might not be applicable going forward. below is the new method of correction of JAMB names.

  1. The current procedure involves first correcting names on NIN.
  2. Then send a “REQUERY NIN” text to 55019/66019.
  3. Obtaining the JAMB PIN using the corrected/reactivated profile code, and subsequently completing the registration.

This ensures that the corrected names are reflected in the reactivated profile code and, consequently, on the JAMB portal.

Wrapping up…

The new method of JAMB’s name correction procedures highlights the need to follow a careful and timely approach. Contrary to popular assumption, names, states, LGAs, genders, and other information can still be corrected in some cases.
