How To Link Email Address To JAMB Profile 2023 & Deadline
As technology continues to evolve, many educational institutions and examination bodies have embraced online platforms as a means of delivering services to their stakeholders. The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is one such body, and they have created an online portal where candidates can access various services, including checking their examination results and admission status.
One important aspect of using the JAMB online portal is linking your email address to your JAMB profile. This is essential because it enables JAMB to communicate important information to you, such as updates on the admission process and other important notices.
In this interactive guide, we will take you through the step-by-step process of linking your email address to your JAMB profile in the 2023 academic year. Whether you are a first-time candidate or a returning one, this guide will provide you with all the information you need to successfully link your email address to your JAMB profile and stay informed throughout the admission process.
Greetings, Folks! I am pleased to present to you a new episode of my “JAMB Dailyfeed Series” where I will be sharing valuable information on linking your email address to your JAMB CAPS Profile/Portal. This episode is designed to guide you on the effective way to link your email address, so stay tuned for the step-by-step process. Exciting, isn’t it?
To curb the high rate of students’ data exposure, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has declared that the use of email addresses for JAMB registration will no longer be mandatory.
This means that before registering for JAMB, there are specific details that you must prepare, such as an active phone number, 6700 Naira for registration, and your preferred course and institution. However, having an active email address is not a requirement for registration.
Why did JAMB introduce the idea of registering without an email address?
JAMB Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, stated that cyber-cafe operators and criminals steal email passwords during UTME/Direct Entry registration, which exposes candidates’ personal information. These criminals then change and block candidates from receiving messages from the board and extort them after changing their passwords.
Based on these reasons provided by the JAMB Registrar, it seems reasonable to support the decision to discontinue the use of email for JAMB registration. To complete the 2022/2023 registration process, only a phone number is required. However, certain activities, such as accessing the Student JAMB CAPS page, require the connection of an email address to the JAMB profile.
Linking your email address to your JAMB profile is an important step in the process of registering for the 2023 JAMB UTME examination. It enables you to receive important updates and notifications from JAMB regarding your registration, examination date, and results.
In this guide, I will demonstrate how to link your email to your JAMB CAPS profile and provide information on the deadline for completing this task. Don’t mention it, that’s what friends are for! laughs.
