Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board,JAMB, has announced that as from 31st January, 2023, no candidate would be registered without the provision of an email address.
The Board noted that this review of its Advisory on the ongoing UTME registration is to ensure that best practices are followed in the process of capturing all relevant data pertaining to the candidates.
It added that the latest Advisory aside from aiding in eliciting relevant and up-to-date data of candidates, is also imperative for facilitating the transmission of urgent and vital communication to candidates cheaply and efficiently.
The examination body said the e-mail provides more flexibility in communication and is a more professional way of reaching out to candidates.
It,therefore, advised candidates to get their genuine e-mail addresses before proceeding for UTME registration.
JAMB said candidates should ensure that their passwords are kept securely as the Board does not retrieve lost e-mail passwords or change e-mail addresses once registered.
