The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, (JAMB) has announced that effective from the 31st of January, 2023, no candidate would be registered without the provision of an email address.

JAMB explained in a statement released on Monday through its Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, that the review of its advisory on the ongoing UTME registration was to ensure that best practices were followed in the process of capturing all relevant data pertaining to the candidates.

The Board added that the latest Advisory would not only aid in eliciting relevant and up-to-date data from candidates but also facilitate the transmission of urgent and vital communication to candidates cheaply and efficiently.

It added that the e-mail provided more flexibility in communication and was a more professional way of reaching out to candidates.

JAMB, therefore, advised candidates to get their genuine e-mail addresses before proceeding with UTME registration and ensure that their passwords are kept securely as the Board would not retrieve lost e-mail passwords or change e-mail addresses after Registration
