The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the use of email would no longer be required for the processing of registration for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry.
The Registrar and Chief Executive of JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede who disclosed this to Journalists, noted that email would only be requested at the successful completion of the registration exercise by candidates to access information on the Examination.
He said as from Thursday, April 15, 2021, candidates will no longer be required to provide any email address during registration.
The Registrar explained that consequently, candidates will have other options to access their profile during or after registration.
He said an individual’s mobile phone now remains the only major tool to carry out all the registration processes, adding that JAMB has phased out the use of cash for any transactions in the Computer-Based Test Centres owned by JAMB.
He said the move was to frustrate the antics of touts who hang around JAMB CBT centres as well as prevent illegal charges.
