According to the Board, this Invalid e-Pin issue is caused by the following;

1. A very high rate of candidates buying e-PINS without creating their profile first. See how to Create Jamb Profile Here.
2. Incorrect and non functional email address provided at the bank teller.
3. Recent enforcement of email validation of candidates emails. Candidates who have not created their profile properly would be affected as well.
4. Unforeseen technical issues in the PIN vending system.

If you are among those affected, here are the next steps to take.

1. Do NOT to buy new JAMB pins in the case of invalid pins. The cause of the invalid pin has been investigated
2. All candidates having invalid pins responses have been captured on the system and will receive their PIN details on or before Monday 27th March,2017.
3. Emails with candidate name, email and valid pins will be sent to candidates before Monday 27th March 2017.

2. Each candidate’s email address will now be verified on the system before e-PINS are vended.

  1. I was charged (#6500) when I collected my form from one of the approved cyber-cafe. Please, hope the money will be deducted from the payment I have made when purchasing the E-pin and other materials needed for my exam? Thanks.
