Candidates will be emphatically informed to guard their registration numbers jealously as registration numbers are personal and security items to candidates.
Any candidate who compromises his registration number, does so at his/her own risk.
Any candidate who wishes to correct his/her data (e.g. age, date of birth, state of origin, sex, name

JAMB Has brought out rules to all cafe attendants and center owners to allow candidates use their system for registration, which means you can walk in to any JAMB Approved center and request them to unlock their PC to enable you carry out your registration, this does not imply you wont be charged, but a stipulated fee has been mapped out for each candidate registration.
