Two candidates will not use the same number
The first warning states that two candidates MUST NOT use a single GSM number. This is one of the most essential warning, that will help students in the registration format.
According to Benjamin, all candidates desirous of registering for the examination must ensure that he or she starts off by sending his/her full name, (surname first) to the code provided by the board.
In doing this, candidates must ensure that no other person had used the telephone number for the same purpose.
“No two persons must use a single GSM number in commencing the registration process as it will not be acceptable.”
“Not even siblings are allowed to share a particular telephone number for this purpose.”
Even when done in the Past
“For instance, if candidate A had used a telephone number to send his name to the code in the past, candidate B, who is a sibling to A cannot use that number for that purpose again.
“The way it is configured is one individual to one telephone number that will remain exclusive to that single individual for the purpose of the entire examination process.
For failed candidate, you can still use it
But candidate A, who probably might not have been able to pass the examination, can still use that particular line again to send his name to that code whenever the need arises.
That means, if you did not pass your examination in 2018, you can still use that particular number for registration in 2019 without any difficulty .
For missing numbers?
Anyways, if registered for JAMB UTME in 2018, and you failed to secure admission, but unfortunately, due to some conditions and circumstances, that SIM got missing.
Don’t worry, JAMB has got something for you, and it is the best option for you not have any issue with JAMB.
Benjamin suggested that it would be safe to get a fresh telephone number for the purpose to send to the code for the candidate’s profile number.
“No two persons can share a telephone number for the purpose of confidentiality.
“As a rule, it has always been one person to a telephone number to get a profile number that will enable candidates do the proper registration and capturing,’’ he said.
