JAMB stops the use of email address for 2021 UTME/DE Registration

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the use of email would no longer be required for the registration of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry candidates. This was disclosed by the JAMB Boss Prof Is-haq Oloyede.

According to him, from Thursday, April 15, 2021, candidates will no longer be required to provide any email address during registration.

Oloyede said the new system was to ensure candidates’ information are not exposed to dubious cyber cafe operators and other criminal elements who in the course of UTME/ Direct Entry registration steal email passwords to perpetrate fraud.

Oloyede said, “They gain access to profiles of these candidates under the pretense of creating an email address for them. Then they change and block the candidates from receiving messages from the board. They also extort them after they change their passwords.

He said the phone number of candidates is now the only major requirement to carry out all the registration processes.

Oloyede however stated that email address would only be requested at the successful completion of the registration exercise by candidates. This is to update their profile with JAMB as the email will no longer be used as access to their profile, but rather as a communication tool with the candidates. Candidates are to provide their email addresses after the closure of JAMB registration via the methods below;

  • (a) JAMB Mobile APP on the candidates registered phone (the phone bearing the registered phone number)
  • (b) Sending the word email (space then the email address) on his /her registered phone to 55019. The email should be typed twice to ensure validation and the prevention of typographical errors.

Concerning how candidates can access their JAMB profile, Prof. Oloyede said candidates will also have the following options to access their profile during or after registration.

  • i. Mobile APP on the candidates’ phone
  • ii. Or through the 55019 option. He said JAMB is working to make it possible for candidates to be able to perform the following task; admission status checking, acceptance of admission etc by sending SMS to 55019.

He added that the Printing of examination slip (Notification) or Result notification slip can be done using the candidates’ JAMB registration number only.

        I thought Email address is no longer asked for registration, that it’s after the registration we’ll send the Email to them (Jamb)

        • The email will no longer be used as access to their profile, but rather as a communication tool with the candidates.

  30. Pls Sir… After printing my slip, I discovered that my LGA/State is wrong and the man doing the registration said it’s not his fault that it’s the data provided from NIMC database… Pls would this be a problem? What can I about it?

    just making things difficult for applicants
    Rubish jamb

  34. Jamb is just complicating this registration and for all concerns and also for candidate to access their jamb portal with ease after registration may again be more challenging.

    Every year new rule. Rubbish.

  39. What about the people that have already registered, this is not supposed to be happening”JAMB suppose to be ready before asking people to go for registration why is it that every morning you wake up they impose another rule that shows they are not prepared all this while, jamb suppose to do a board meeting before reaching out to people for registrations that’s just what am saying.
