How to Book an Appointment to JAMB Offices via SMA(R)T Numbers.
JAMB SMA(R)T PHONE NUMBERS
The SMA(R)T phone numbers popularly called ”vanity numbers”in other climes are very easy to remember. SMA(R)T (Vanity) numbers are artificial numbers based on the letters of the beneficial owner of the number.
The letters in the name of the owner are keyed once wherever they occur on the phone pad. For example, JAMB which is the name of the beneficiary in this instance would apart from 0700 which is the SMA(R)T-code in Nigeria ( for non-toll—free) have ”J” of JAMB on key ”5”, ”A” on key (12”, ”M” on ”6″ and (IBM on ”2”.
Consequently, all SMA(R)T JAMB numbers would include 5262. Therefore all JAMB numbers in different offices are unified with 0700-5(J)2(A)6(M)2(B) before the 3 or 4 other numbers for the state or centre.
This would make it easy for a candidate to remember the constant –0700—5262.
These dedicated numbers are meant to facilitate round-the-clock access to JAMB services.
All JAMB SMA(R)T phone lines would commence with ’0700’, followed by ”JAMB” and then the first three letters of each State with the exception of one or two States that did not follow the sequence of the first three letters. For instance, Abia State would have ’0700- JAMB—ABI’ as its phone number.
The Board is mindful of the fact that the normal eleven digit numbers are difficult to memorize but when it comes to SMA(R)T numbers, all a candidate needs to do is simply to add the last three letters of the State Capital of his choice to ‘0700—JAMB’.
NB: Members of the public are to note that these phone lines, while not toll-free, would be accessible on all networks.
