The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has implemented the National Identification Number (NIN) as a mandatory requirement for UTME registration since 2020. This has raised questions among students, particularly about the possibility of using one NIN for multiple registrations.

Can I Use One NIN for JAMB Twice?

The short answer is no, you cannot use one NIN for JAMB twice. Each NIN is unique to an individual and once linked to a JAMB profile, it cannot be used again for another registration.

Here’s why:

  • Unique Identification: The NIN acts as a unique identifier for individuals in Nigeria. Linking it to JAMB registration ensures data integrity and prevents fraudulent activities.
  • Multiple Registrations: Using the same NIN for multiple registrations could lead to complications and inconsistencies in candidate data.
  • Fairness and Transparency: The one-NIN-per-registration policy ensures a fair and transparent process for all applicants.

What about previous NIN usage for other purposes?

If you’ve used your NIN for other purposes, like registering for a SIM card or bank account, it doesn’t affect your JAMB registration. The NIN’s link to JAMB is specific to the UTME process.

What if you need to change your NIN after JAMB registration?

In case of any discrepancies or errors in your NIN information, you can contact JAMB for assistance. They will guide you through the process of correcting your details and ensure your profile remains accurately.
