Abdulrazaq Yahaya July 26, 2021 - 10:05 pm

Every information on your JAMB profile is changeable but please note that you must pay N2, 500 to JAMB before you can continue.

Kindly revisit that cbt centre tomorrow and request any of the staff to assist you to change your email address and phone number for you.

Most of the staffs demand service charge, in this way, it should not be more than N500, i.e, go there with N3, 500 or N3, 000.

If you are still having other questions or problems, simply open another comment, please.

For your convenience, this website has a search toolbar, hence, type anything you have to know about jamb in it to enjoy fabulously, for example, type in ”how to pay to jamb” ( and see our already posted articles about jamb payment.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Best regards,

Today being 14th June 2021 is a democracy day in Nigeria, because 12th June is a death day of late Abiola, the former head of state in Nigeria and it unfortunately happened on Saturday.

Anyways, every approved and accredited jamb cbt center nationwide will open the door and work today.
