What this implies is that, just as you get ready to register for Jamb, there are certain information you must have, like an active Phone number, about 5000 Naira for the registration, the course and Institution you will like to study in, but you will not need an active email address.

But, why did Jamb come up with the Idea of Registering Jamb without an email Address? 😏

According to the Jamb Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, candidates’ information are exposed to dubious cyber-cafe operators and other criminal elements who in the course of their UTME/ Direct Entry registration steal email passwords to perpetrate fraud.

The Jamb Registrar 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.

I guess with these few points from the Registrar of Jamb, you too are in support of the decision to discontinuing using of email for Jamb Registration right?.

The registrar further said that, only major requirement to carry out all 2022/2023 registration processes is your Phone number. I will have explained in more the entire registration process for Jamb, you can check it out HERE.

Since you now use your Phone number alone without your Email address as well, in registering for Jamb, you will find out that, there are things you will b unable to do, and one of this things is “access their Student Jamb CAPS page“, at least until you are able to connect your Email address to your Jamb Profile account.
