    • If you can still log in with the old profile, they may be no need to create another. Just proceed to a CBT centre to complete your registration for this year exam

    • Jamb brochure can always be the best guide to this, but I think you will need any three from Literature in English, Government/History, Economics and CRS/IRS in addition to Use of English.

    • You may be needing Maths, Physics and Chemistry. You can check to confirm that on the current Jamb brochure, check it at Jamb portal under the iBASS section

    • Pls I used the email, profile code and phone number that I used to register last year to register again this year, hope it’s safe
