Can I still convert utme to de without jamb admission letter because jamb office in Ado Ekiti were asking for my admission letter which I used to enter the school. It was only the school admission letter I was given, jamb didn’t give me admission (though I wrote jamb that year and it was through it I entered the school). Pls I would really appreciate ur prompt response.

Dear Evelyn, I just experienced the same thing and my OTP was sent yesterday, ensure Do not Disturb option is off on your phone, or you either change where you place your registration simcard, what I mean by that is to remove your simcard from you phone and insert it into a small phone.
Now contact jamb by creating a student support ticket, to do search on net on how to create student support ticket, it was so easy, and onev you do that jamb will also reply you and you will see that through a text message from 55019 if you see that then your OTP will be sent soon. I’ve go through the process unfortunately jamb is sending the OTP but my phone did not received it.

I will assume that you registered JAMB UTME online. As such, JAMB will automatically fetch your UTME details and use them.
