Easy steps to Link Email to Jamb Profile 2022/2023
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has stated that, effective immediately, students will no longer be needed to use their email address while registering for the Jamb examination. This change was made in an effort to lower the rate at which student data is exposed.
What this implies is that, just as you get ready to register for Jamb, there are certain information you must have, like an active Phone number, about 5000 Naira for the registration, the course and Institution you will like to study in, but you will not need an active email address.
But why did Jamb come up with the idea that candidates could register for Jamb even if they did not have an email address?
According to the Jamb Registrar, Professor Is-haq Oloyede, the information of candidates is exposed to questionable cyber-cafe operators and other criminal elements who, in the process of their UTME or Direct Entry registration, steal email passwords in order to commit fraud.
“They obtain access to profiles of these candidates on the premise of creating an email address for them,” the Jamb Registrar said. After that, they make a different decision, which is to prevent the applicants from receiving messages from the board. After the users have changed their passwords, they extort money from them as well.
I’m going to suppose that after reading these few points from the Registrar of JAMb, you agree with the decision to stop allowing candidates to use their email addresses when registering for JAMb, right?
The registrar went on to say that the only significant criteria needed to complete any of the 2022/2023 registration processes is your phone number. I will have provided a more in-depth explanation of the full registration process for Jamb; if you are interested, you can view it HERE.
In order to register for Jamb, you will discover that there are certain things you will be unable to do. One of these things is “access their Student Jamb CAPS page,” and you won’t be able to do this at least not until you are able to connect your Email address to your Jamb Profile account. This is due to the fact that you now only use your Phone number instead of both your Phone number and your Email address.
That is the essence of today’s episode of my “Jamb Doctor Series“, here I will show you how you can connect/link your Jamb Email address to Jamb Profile and also Jamb’s stipulated deadline for doing this. You don’t need to thank me, what are friends for! lol
