How To Do JAMB Correction Of Name 2021 [PROCESS]

We will only be discussing on JAMB correction of the name for 2021 today. The first step you take to join those writing Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination powered by JAMB is to create a profile.

During the creation, you might made mistake be it in your name, local government, date of birth, e.t.c.

However, this can be easily changed without stressing yourself.

I have once been a victim of this, while trying to create for a friend of mine. I mistakenly wrote Oleyemi instead of Olayemi. Lol, don’t laugh oooo no one is above error.

You might be thinking of what will happen if he continues using the name that way.

Such a person may be disqualified from admission in a situation whereby the name found on his birth certificate or O’level result is not correlating.

In fact, your institution assumes you forge it whereas you are the genuine owner of the result.  

JAMB Correction of Name Code Using USSD

Before you proceed to complete your registration at the CBT center.

Once you notice your name has been wrongly written, slot in the SIM card you used to create your profile on a phone.

Send a message to 55019 following the blow format.

SURNAME, FIRST NAME, MIDDLE NAME. These should be the new names you are willing to change to. Please don’t send the wrong name as SMS again.

When will it be corrected on my profile?

Immediately the message is successfully sent check your profile after 10mins. The effect would have been made.

What else can be done with this code?

Checking of your UTME result. If you are short of data on your phone you can also use the code to view your score. Don’t dial the code just send SMS only.

Does it cost money to change my name on JAMB with the USSD code?

Yes, don’t worry it’s not much just fifty naira (50) bobo money.

Can I lodge complaints with this code?.

If you do, you won’t be responded to. Instead, visit the nearby CBT center or JAMB office and complain to them. You can also check the support center for help.

Can it work after doing my bio-metrics (thumb printing)?

No, if you’ve finished your registration and you forget to correct the name, go and write the exam now come back and pay a sum of two thousand five naira (2,500) to edit online.

How To Correct Your Name On JAMB Portal

Write down the wrong name and the name you want to change it to on a sheet of paper, go to any computer cafe or CBT center near you.

Tell them you want to do JAMB correction of name and give them the details needed, it’s not free btw.

The name won’t start showing at once, it will take some time to propagate on the portal and your documents.

Conclusion

Any error observed on your JAMB portal should be corrected earlier before you go deep into the registration to avoid unnecessary stress.

Hope the steps explained are easy? If yes give us a share and if you are still confused

in one way or the other drop it in the comment box.

      • Please I wrote JAMB in 2016 (already gained admission)
        Yesterday we had to check if our names are on the JAMB matriculation list and to do that I had to create a new profile (as I have forgotten the details to the old one) in the process of creating this new portal I omitted ‘U’, I already have my registration number and result with the correct details, please will this new profile affect the name that will appear on my result if I try to print it?

  47. Am facing the same problem with you your problem is coming from nin they did not correct your name,
    bcus if dey would have done it your profile code wouldn’t have showed the old name the only thing you can do now is to pray so that jamb name will change before time runs out bcus me I don give up somehow it’s very painful for somebody to pay for something and finds out that u waist your time and most importantly ur money
