In this discussion, we will address the issue of retrieving a lost JAMB registration or examination number. Sometimes, candidates who are seeking admission may require their JAMB registration or exam numbers but may have misplaced or forgotten them.Typically, first-time candidates may not think to commit their numbers to memory immediately after registering for UTME/DE. However, to begin any post-UTME or screening registration, the number is required. In certain cases, schools may even require you to fill out a paper form with the registration number, as is the case with The Federal Polytechnic Offa in Kwara State.
Certainly, it is highly likely that you have already checked your JAMB result through SMS as soon as it was released by the board. If that’s the case, then search for the SMS on your phone and locate your JAMB registration number within it.
However, if you have lost or accidentally deleted the SMS, you can still retrieve it. You simply need to repeat the same process of checking your JAMB result through SMS.
To do this, simply send or text the keyword “UTME RESULT” to the shortcode 55019. You will be charged a fee of #50 and the SMS containing your JAMB registration number and scores will be sent to you promptly.

2. Recheck the Email Inbox or Spam Used for JAMB Reg.
During the JAMB UTME or DE registration process, each candidate is required to provide an email address. This email address is then linked to the JAMB portal, allowing candidates to receive important messages from JAMB, including their JAMB registration slip and profile details. If you have not yet linked your email to the JAMB portal, you can follow the procedures outlined in this post to do so.
Once your email is linked, you can log in to your email account to retrieve your JAMB registration slip or profile details. This slip contains your JAMB registration number, among other important information, and is sent to you by JAMB immediately after your UTME/DE application is submitted by the CBT center, or after linking your email to the JAMB portal.
In the event that you have lost your JAMB registration slip, you can retrieve it by logging into your email account and using the email search function. Simply enter the keyword “JAMB slip” in the search box and click “search” or hit “enter” on your device. Your email system will then display a list of messages sent to you by JAMB or containing the term “JAMB.” Look for the message with an attachment (📎) or any JAMB message that was sent on the day you linked your email. Download the slip and you will find your JAMB registration number on it.

If you have previously done a JAMB change of institution or course, and received a slip confirming your changes, your JAMB registration number can also be found on that slip.
This slip is typically only given to candidates who have made changes to their JAMB choices, which includes providing details on the institutions and courses they have newly selected. If you have this slip, then your JAMB registration number is already in your possession.
6. Log in to JAMB Profile and Check Under CAPS
Accessing your JAMB profile is another way to retrieve your JAMB registration number. First, you need to link your email address to your JAMB profile. Once you have done that, you can log in to your JAMB profile and proceed to your JAMB CAPS (Central Admission Processing System).
In the JAMB CAPS section, click on the “Admission Status” link, and you will see your JAMB details, including your JAMB registration number. If you haven’t linked your email address to your JAMB profile, you may not be able to log in to the profile or CAPS.
