Why Do JAMB Keep telling me That my email is invalid?

Jamb Invalid Email Format Response
JAMB Invalid Email Format Response

There are two major reasons why you may get this error (Invalid email format) each time you try linking your Email address to JAMB online profile, these reasons are;

  1. The context of the message you sent to 55019 did not follow the specified format by JAMB
  2. The Email you are trying to link to JAMB was not what you registered JAMB with.

I will explain each of these two possible causes, and how you can find your way around them, keep reading diligently for details…

1. SMS was not formatted Properly

Link email to JAMB via text

Some students, when they try linking their email to JAMB, the way they format the text message does not correspond with JAMB recommendation, and this can make the entire process not successful.

If you want the linking to be successful, the SMS you send must follow the right pattern as shown in the image above…

…to make this easy for you, I have prepared the text format here in this post, all you have to do now is copy the text I will provide you with shortly and paste it on your SMS app.

[email protected] 
[email protected]

Copy the text above and paste on your text app, then edit the email replacing it without your correct email address.

Mind You: This email address must be what you registered JAMB with

This brings me to the next possible cause…

2. Trying To Link An email Address You did Not Register JAMB With

JAMB made email not a compulsory requirement for JAMB registration, and as such, some JAMB registration centers did not bother asking students for their Email address when they were been registered.

These set of students (those their email address were not registered with JAMB during registration) cannot use the normal SMS method to link their Email address to JAMB, if they must link their email address they will have to follow the procedures below…

But how do I know if I registered JAMB with my email address already?????

Good question, you can tell if you registered JAMB with your email address simply by checking your JAMB registration slip, on the slip, under PERSONAL DETAILS, you will find something like this…

Surname: *******
First Name: ******
Other Name: ******
Date of Birth: ******
Physically Challenged: ******
Gender: ******
GSM No./eMail: ******

At the last information “GSM No./eMail” check to see if your Email address was clearly stated, if the space for email is empty, then you did not register with JAMB but if it shows an email address, that is the email address you are to link to JAMB.

With these piece of information, am confident you won’t have a hard time trying to link your email address to JAMB.

In Conclusion

You will mostly get the Invalid email Format feedback error each time you try to link your email address through 55019 when the email address you are trying to link is not what you registered JAMB with or when you did not register JAMB with any email address at all.
