Not all students registering for 2024 JAMB is actually doing it for the the first time, Students that fall in this category normally find themselves in a quagmire.

Since they once registered for JAMB, it means during their first registration they used an Email address, a phone number and also requested for JAMB Profile Code using that Phone number.

Unfortunately, things did not turn out as they would have wanted it to, and so decided to register for another JAMB.

On getting your JAMB registration requirements ready, the big question popped up, what Email address should I used for my second registration?” can I use the email address and Phone number I once used to register for JAMB?

Worry no more, everything you need to know will be addressed here, all you have to do is take a glass of water and read diligently. Nah, no need to thank me, what are friends for 😊

JAMB released a new guide for 2024/2025 JAMB UTME Registration, below is all you need to know.

Can I use One Email Address To Register For JAMB Twice

No, You should not use one Email address to register for JAMB two times.

Provided this email address has been used by you or anyone else to create and JAMB Profile, it renders that email address not valid or unavailable for creating another JAMB Profile.

So using the same Email you have used before would make it impossible for you to create your JAMB Profile that would correspond with your most recent JAMB registration.

Hmm!, what if I decide to still register for JAMB using the same Email address?😏

Well, there are consequences. If you register for JAMB using that same email address you used in your previous JAMB Exam, when the time comes to link your Email address to JAMB, you will encounter difficulty.

Not just that, each time you login to your JAMB profile account that was created by your once used email address, the account will not be updated to the current JAMB year

Instead, you will keep seeing the year you first used the email to register for JAMB, so let us say, John registered for JAMB in 2023 using [email protected] and went ahead to register for 2024 JAMB with the same email address; [email protected]

when John logs in to his JAMB account, instead of the account to be updated to 2024 JAMB, it will keep showing 2023 JAMB, and this can be very problematic because when the time for admission comes…

…each time you try to access your JAMB CAPS, you will get a feed back error saying “you are not eligible to use this service on JAMB CAPS” Bad right?

My Recommendation:

If you registered for JAMB before now and you want to avoid stories that touch the heart, then create a new email address using the steps provided here.

Use this new email address you have created for all your JAMB related activity, you can use your email address for other purpose, bank, school admission, but not JAMB.

Yes, unlike your email address you can use same phone number twice for JAMB Registration, but it is a little more complicated than it sound, there are some conditions you must meet, before you can re-use same phone number, they include;

  1. The Phone number can only be used by the same student that first used it by JAMB
  2. The same profile code used while registering for the first JAMB must be reused while registering
  3. The profile code of last year will be used to purchase a new ePin.

What this means is that, if you meet-up with the requirements listed above, then you can go ahead to reuse the same phone number for JAMB. To guide you with this, I have provided you with some resources you should go through…

No, Since you cannot use same Email address for this year JAMB, you cannot use the same profile you used last year for this Year’s JAMB even when it is with the phone number and Profile code.

The moment you retrieve JAMB profile code you will link it to a new email address, you will be sent a new password which you can now use to login to your new JAMB profile.
