The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) conducts the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) every year for candidates seeking admission into Nigerian universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education. As part of the registration process, candidates are required to obtain a JAMB profile code, which is a unique 10-digit number assigned to each candidate by JAMB. In this article, we will guide you through the process of obtaining your JAMB 2023 profile code.
