How to Book an Appointment to JAMB Offices via SMA(R)T Numbers

JAMB Appointment Booking Number: How to Book an Appointment to JAMB Offices via SMA(R)T Numbers.

JAMB Appointment Booking Number

Due to the prevailing corona virus (covid-19) pandemic the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to ensure seamless and efficient delivery of their service also proactively protecting both staff and clients, particularly tertiary education candidates and the general public while still maintaining the covid-19 rules and regulations has decided to launch a booking platform for all candidates and the general public who is need of any of the board service that requires physical contact.

RECOMMENDED: Contact JAMB via the JAMB Support Portal.

The board launched four (4) new innovations or platforms for bookings but will be using one as of now which is called the SMA(R)T Phone Numbers which we are going to cover in this post, they include:

1. The appointment booking-platform
2. The One Time Password,
3. The Disinfectant Tunnel Sprayers and
4. the SMA(R)T phone numbers.


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.

38OYO (IGBOHO)0700-JAMB-OYGH0700-5262-6944


To call any of the numbers, all a candidate needs to do to attain the alphabets would be to simply dial, just once, the corresponding letters on the numeric keys. For instance, ’5’ would yield ’J’, ’K’ and ’L’ etc. Each number on the numeric phone key (from 2 to 9) would bear the letters under it.

Note that the letters dialed will be displayed as digits e.g: 0700-JAMB- ABI shall display as 07005262224 when dialed from the numeric phone keys.
