    Good evening Master, I too have the same problem, concerning date of birth changing on the JAMB Portal. Although, almost every question I wanted to ask had been answered by you; hence, I really appreciate you for this. In fact, your article is so much helpful for me in particular.
    However, I still have some number of questions to ask you sir; the questions go thus:

    Firstly, does changing of NIN date of birth can change my date of birth on JAMB Portal as well?
    Secondly, what can I do concerning my own issue? I registered for JAMB this year, but the date of birth on my NIN is 1998; whereas my real date of birth is 2002. So, when I wanted to register, I consciously used my NIN’S date of birth to avoid irregularity. Now, I want to change my date of birth on JAMB Portal, should I need to change my date of birth on NIN first, before proceeding to that of JAMB?? Or there is no connection between JAMB’S date of birth and that of NIN?

    Please, advise me on what to do, I’m confused, because I don’t want to loose admission this year.
    Moreover, I want your WhatSapp number for help.

    • Hello Laidi, Any changes made via NIN will reflect to your jamb details, just as any changes made via BVN will reflect on your bank details etc.

      • Liadi Abdulramon Oladimeji

        Sir, what you’re saying in essence is that, if I can change my NIN’S date of birth will automatically change my JAMB’S date of birth, right??
        Thank you so much for providing lasting solution to students’ educational problems, may God continue to endow you more wisdom-I really appreciate sir.
