4 Ways to Get Back a Lost JAMB Registration Number

JAMB logo

Let’s talk about getting back a lost JAMB registration or Examination number. There are situations where admission seekers will need to use their JAMB registration or exam numbers and for the usual reasons, they might have lost or forgotten them.

It nearly never occurs to first-time candidates to memorize their numbers right after registering UTME/DE. And to begin any post UTME or screening registration, you will need this number. In fact, a few schools may ask you to fill a paper form with the registration number needed e.g The Federal Polytechnic Offa, Kwara State.

What if you have forgotten or lost the JAMB number? What can you do to get it back?

This post gives you four methods to get back or retrieve your JAMB registration/exam number.

1. Check the Email (Inbox/Spam) Used for JAMB

Each candidate used an email to register his or her JAMB UTME or DE. You will need to log into that email to find your JAMB registration slip. It’s attached to a message sent to you by JAMB immediately after the CBT centre submitted your UTME/DE application.

The JAMB registration number is on it, of course.

And if you’ve lost the slip, what you need is to log into your email. You might have got several messages after your JAMB registration which will make it difficult to get or locate the JAMB message containing the slip.

Here, just locate the email search box and enter the keyword, “JAMB slip” and click “search” or hit “enter” on your device. Your email system will list the set of messages JAMB sent to you or containing the terms JAMB. Locate the one with the attachment (📎). There you have it. Click and download the slip. You will find the JAMB registration number on it.

2. Use Your JAMB Phone Number to Reprint JAMB Exams Slip

Right on your JAMB registration or the exam slip, the JAMB registration number is written. For the registration slip, you’re given this immediately before you left the CBT centre where you registered the JAMB UTME/DE.

But you might have lost that slip. I gave you how to get the lost UTME/DE registration slips back in my post, “Lost JAMB SIM/Line, Reg/Exams/Change Slip? Get it Back!“.

If none of those methods work, you can still get your exam number right through this JAMB official link to print the exam slip. There, you will enter your PHONE NUMBER and click print exams slip.

A new window will open containing your exam slip. On this, you will find your JAMB registration and exam number.

3. Use Your Email to Reprint JAMB Exam Slip

Similar to number 2 above, if you’re out of luck to remember your JAMB phone number or lost it, you can use your email address to reprint the exam slip containing it instead.

After visiting the JAMB exam slip reprinting link, enter your email used for JAMB instead. This will also launch the exam slip window which will contain the exam or the registration number.

4. Check the JAMB Change of Institutions/Courses Slip

If you had earlier done the JAMB change of institutions/courses, then given a slip confirming your changes, the JAMB registration number is on that slip too.

The slip is only given to those who change their choices detailing the institutions/courses and the new choices. With that at hand, your JAMB registration number is with you.
