Generated Name Doesn’t Match
Another possible error message when trying to generate a Jamb profile code is
Already generated Profile Code Names (Your name and Surname) Does Not match Names you entrolled with NIMC.
Your profile name is your SIM Card name. It should match your NINC name, i.e the name you entered while creating a Jamb profile.
NIN Registered With GSM Number
Your NIN 00123456789 has already been registered with GSM Number 090xxxxxxxx.
If you are told that your NIN has already been registered with another number, simply use the number that you used to register NIN to create your Jamb Profile and if you don’t have that number anymore, it is best you retrieve it.
NIN Must be Numbers Only
NIN Must be numbers only e.g NIN 00000000021 to 55019.
The error above shall display if you add more than one space between your NIN and NIN number. Make sure there is only ONE Space.
Here is an example of more than one space between NIN and NIN Number – NIN 00000000021
GSM Number has Already Been Used
This GSM Number has already been used by another Candidate on e-Facility.
If you already wrote or registered Jamb in the past, the same profile code shall be sent to you. Simply use the code to register the new Jamb.
- You will be given the same profile code if you wrote Jamb before.
- You can use 2021 profile code to register 2022 Jamb

Get a New SIM Card
If you have tried everything above and still not getting your profile code, simply get a new sim card and link it with your NIN. Then Use it to Send NIN 00123456789 to 55019.
- Dial *785# to link NIN to your MTN Line
- Dial *121*1# to link your Glo line
- Dial *121*1# to link NIN to Airtel Line
- Dial *200*8# to link NIN to 9Mobile Line
- Glo: send “UPDATENIN NIN FirstName and LastName” to 109.
Another issue came up whereby candidates are being sent their profile code to sim cards blocked by their network providers, if that be the case, do the following.
- – Go to the service provider to unlink the old sim
- – Go to NIMC office to activate the new sim
