The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have announced that prospective candidates for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) are required to provide their email addresses for registration. This was made known in a statement issued on Monday by Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, adding that the policy will take effect from Tuesday, 31 January 2023.
The statement further reads, “The Board added that the latest advisory aside from aiding in eliciting relevant and up-to-date data of candidates is also imperative for facilitating the transmission of urgent and vital communication to candidates cheaply and efficiently.
“Furthermore, e-mail provides more flexibility in communication and is a more professional way of reaching out to candidates. Candidates are therefore advised to get their genuine e-mail addresses before proceeding for UTME registration.
“In addition, candidates are to ensure that their passwords are kept securely as the Board does not retrieve lost e-mail passwords or change e-mail addresses once registered.”
