Just recently, JAMB has made it possible for you to get your profile code sent to your email while you’re creating your profile.

In order to check for your profile code in the email:

Log in to your email you used while creating the profile or used for your JAMB registration

Locate the message sent to you that very day.

If you’d already got a lot of messages that, it becomes difficult for you to see the JAMB’s ones, use the search box inside your email dashboard. Type in “JAMB” and hit the enter key (search). This will return only a few messages you got from JAMB or that has to do with JAMB. Then, check for the right one.
