In this article, I will primarily focus on guiding you on how to recover and retrieve JAMB Profile Code 2023 through email and SMS (phone text message).
I shall also teach you how to retrieve your lost profile code (for those who want to use their last year profile code and those who have forgotten their own)
Note: if you are one of the candidates that registered JAMB last year, then you can still use your last year’s JAMB profile code to register this year. See how to do it here.
For those trying to generate their code for the first time, I have explained how to get JAMB profile code 2023 via email and SMS here.
Is Profile Code and Confirmation Code the Same?
Ever since 2021, the JAMB Profile creation process has changed and it is advisable to learn the new procedures to avoid having errors when trying to use the old methods.
Now candidates need to send a message to JAMB to get their profile code and then use it to complete the setting up of their profile.
Back to the question, JAMB profile code and JAMB confirmation code are the same. The profile code is also your confirmation code.
Can I use my old JAMB profile code?
If you still have your profile or if you have lost your profile code, then you can retrieve it and use it for this year exam. see the steps below.
How to Retrieve JAMB Profile Code 2023 Through SMS
If you wish to retrieve your lost profile code for last year and reuse it this year or if you have forgotten your profile code then follow these steps to retrieve it.
First Step: Open your Text Message App
Second Step: Create new SMS
Third Step: in the text area, type the word “RESEND” in capital letters
Fourth Step: Send the message to 55019
Example: make sure your text message looks like the one shown in the image below.
How to Recover JAMB Profile Code Through Email 2023
First of all, you will need your profile code before you can complete the JAMB profile creation. Below are the steps to get your profile code via SMS.

If the NIN was not yours, then you need to register your own NIN
Pls someone should answer this🙏..I’m still waiting on jamb admission of last year but I want to register for jamb again this year, nd i must use the same profile code since it’s already linked to the nin Sim, another sim won’t work, can i still gain admission of last year, after using same profile code this year?

You keep telling about about updating NIMC, bro its not working, besides the number in the app is even different from my lost sim, which i used to profile code, This mumu jamb don kill education for my body
The fact that it doesn’t work for you doesn’t mean it doesn’t work for others.. Here are the procedures to follow:
1. Visit a NIMC (NIN) enrollment center and update/validate your details
2. Use the app to refresh your updated details.
3. Send the SMS again to get your profile code
I have received my profile code for last year but am not use it and I send them message to get new profile code but told me that my NIN number has been registered with (09130539241) but I lost the sim and I don’t see my last year profile code again please help me 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏😪😪😪😓😥😢
I wrote Jamb last year but was offered a course at a University different from my choice. I want to apply for Jamb again this year and I’ve been sending my NIN to 55019 but keeps saying I should send help to the number which I did but nothing still. Though I accept the course but I want to try Jamb for my preferred course. If I used last year profile code, won’t it affect my admission because Jamb hasn’t given me admission letter yet, I only got admission notification from the university and when I checked my Jamb portal, it says I have not been offered admission yet. Won’t registering for Jamb again with last year profile code affect my admission from Jamb?

Visit any NIMC enrollment center in your state to update the phone number to the new one or go and retrieve your lost sim

Not at all! You can still register but you must have to go to a NIMC enrollment center to update your phone number to the one that you are using
