Ensuring the accuracy of personal information on your Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) profile is essential for a hassle-free registration process.
This guide provides insights into the procedures involved in updating or changing your name, number, email, and date of birth (DOB) for JAMB in 2024.
1. Correcting JAMB Name Details
For minor spelling corrections like changing “Mari” to “Mary” or “Danel” to “Daniel,” the process is straightforward during JAMB registration.
Raise a ticket through the JAMB support center online or visit an accredited JAMB registration CBT center to facilitate the correction. However, complete name changes or significant alterations are not allowed.
2. Change of Name Procedure for 2022 JAMB Candidates and Below
Candidates who took the JAMB exam in 2022 and earlier, seeking a name change, must fill out an indemnity form.
This form needs to be submitted to the institution and returned to JAMB to ensure accurate reflection in the records.
3. Important Note on Name Changes
Even if you legally change your name with NIMC after JAMB, the board will not automatically update your name. Valid changes made outside JAMB will not reflect in JAMB records.
4. Changing Date of Birth
While changing the date of birth is generally not allowed, exceptions may be made for evident errors.
The process involves a payment of 15,000 Naira at an accredited JAMB CBT registration center. It is crucial to correct the date of birth first on NIMC before updating it on JAMB.
5. Bio Details and NIMC Integration
Before registering for JAMB 2024, it is advisable to update bio details with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
Ensuring consistency between O’level/A’level names and NIN details minimizes discrepancies during registration.
6. Updating Emails and Phone Numbers
Once used, JAMB emails and phone numbers cannot be changed. However, if a mistake occurs, raising a ticket allows the profile with incorrect details to be stepped down, facilitating a fresh start with accurate information.
Final Thoughts on Change of Name and Other Details on JAMB
Proactively managing personal information is crucial for a seamless JAMB registration process. Follow the outlined steps to ensure that your name, date of birth, and contact details are current for JAMB 2024.
Providing accurate and complete details during registration avoids integration issues and potential discrepancies. Stay informed and make the registration process smoother.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
