What this implies is that, just as you get ready to register for JAMB, there are certain information you must have ready (active Phone number, 6700 Naira for registration, the Course and Institution you will like to study in) but you won’t be needing an active email address for registration.

But, why did JAMB come up with this Idea of Registering JAMB without using an email Address??

According to 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.

He also 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 only major requirement to carry out all 2023 registration processes is your Phone number. I have explained in details the entire registration process for JAMB.

Since you now use your Phone number alone without Email address for JAMB Registration, you will find out that, there are things you will be unable to do, and one of these things is “access their Student JAMB CAPS page“, at least until you are able to connect your Email address to your JAMB Profile.

    1. Hey Favour, kindly note that, creating Jamb profile for 2022 Jamb student should be done via linking of their registered email to Jamb and not online registration, I have a detailed guide on the right steps to take via this link below…

      Since self-service for the linking of email is currently not functioning, you can visit any Jamb accredited center to initiate the process.

  9. Hello, I have been having troubles linking my email.. I tried using the format as in your illustrations but I receiving the same response *Invalid eMail Format. Kindly Specificy a valid email address. e.g. [email protected]*. I even created another email.
    According to my jamb registration form, no email was used when registering and there wasn’t even a box to fill it in.. Please what do I do???

    1. Hey Ebenezer, if you look closely at the screen shot you sent, it is not in the exact same format as I have shown in this post, makes sure the text editing is in exactly same format as what is shown HERE

      secondly, the email you are to send should be what is shown in your Jamb registration slip.

      Check and correct any of these two possible causes and you will be fine.

  10. Hello sir, I have tried to link my email to my jamb Severally but it keeps repeating the same response which is invalid email format. Even tried using the format the message suggested but all tono avail. I also went ahead to create new email address but nothing works.
    Sir I attached some screenshots of the response I got. Please what do I do.

    1. Good morning to you too Promise,

      Make sure the email you are trying to link to your Jamb profile was the same you submitted when you registered for jamb.

      You can confirm the email by checking your Jamb registration slip.

      Also make sure the message sent to 55019 is in exact same format as with what I illustrated in the image above…


  11. sir, i wrote JAMB last year and used my boss phone number due to what happen last year concerning the issue of NIN and this i registered for JAMB again and the phone number of last was banner and my boss is not in Nigeria again, is possible for me to do changing of phone number

    1. first of all, Jamb do not allow Change of Phone number.

      and this i registered for JAMB again and the phone number of last was banner and my boss is not in Nigeria again

      don’t get this statement, do you mean you registered for Jamb using thesame phone number you used last year?

        1. Hey UJU, have you tried the step by step guide shown to you here?, if you have but was not successful, you will have to go to any of Jamb’s accredited CBT center around you to complete this process.

    1. No Stress Mutiat 👌

      Try creating an email without numbers (though, that is likely not the cause but to be sure) and send to using same format you used now.

      If the issue persist, try again after 24hours…

      That should get the Job done, otherwise, do well to let me know.

    1. From the image you sent Mutiat, you will observe that it is not the same format with what I specified here…

      This is how it should be…

      [email protected]
      [email protected]

      but what you did was a bit different, make sure after the word ‘Email’ you enter your email address in the next line not on the same line.

      your SMS must be in three (3) lines.

      What you sent was 👇

      Email [email protected] [email protected]

      all in the same line instead of…

      [email protected]
      [email protected]

      They are two different format entirely.

      Correct this, and your email will be linked just fine… CHEERS🎉

  12. Hi sir, i tried linking my email to jamb but it keeps saying invalid email format. I sent the exact format you showed, but it keeps saying invalid email format. Numbers are attached to my email, can that be the issue sir?

    1. Hey Mutiat,

      Invalid mail format most times is as a result of the way you format the text you sent to 55019, you may think you used the right format shown in the image on this post, but the phone you use matters.

      I would recommend you use a phone that would allow you present the SMS in the exact same format (like an android phone).

      If the phone you are using is one that allows you present the message in the exact same format without using the space key, then you should wait for a while and try at night when the number of student attempting this is lesser. That should increase your chances.

      P.S, numbers attached to your email address do not matter, what matters is whether or not the email is correct and active.

      But you can still try creating a new email address and link to jamb if you have your doubts…

      Good luck Mutiat👌

  13. Please I wrote jamb last year but did do well so I didn’t use my last year jamb neither did I link my email..I wrote this year and have been trying to link my email to jamb i have tried everything from different site multiple times …i have tried exactly what you said yet I keep getting the response ‘invalid email’

  14. Please can u help me to link my email to jamb
    I’ve been trying it but it’s not working

    1. Hey Jennifer,

      Kindly note that, for your email to be linked to jamb, the SMS must be sent from the sim you used to request for your Jamb profile code.

      What this implies is that, no one can help link your email to jamb except someone that have that sim in possession.

      If after following this step by step guide, you encounter some error, I would recommended you wait for at least 24hours and repeat the process again…

      Good luck!

        1. Hey Tomiwa

          Make sure the Email address you tried linking to your Jamb profile is not the same with what you used last year.

          If it is a different Email, then the error should be in the format with which you sent the SMS, make sure the message you are sending is in the same format as the image provide in the post above.
