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.
Here I will show you how you can connect your Email to JAMB CAPS Profile and also the deadline for doing this. No need to thank me, what are friends for! lol
