JAMB tells 2022 Candidates, Link your Email address at no cost


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has directed all candidates who had registered for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) but have not linked their e-mail addresses with their profiles to visit any JAMB’s approved Computer Based Test (CBT) centres to do so without delay as the process is entirely free.

This was contained in a statement from the Board’s Head of public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin Monday.

Benjamin said during the 2022 UTME/DE registration, JAMB barred candidates from linking their email addresses to the registration portal.
 
The exclusion of e-mail address at that stage, he said was to prevent candidates from being exploited by nefarious examination syndicates whose agents were hovering around the registration centres pretending to offer assistance to candidates to create their e-mail addresses at a fee. Those fraudsters in the process gained unauthorised access to candidates’ critical information.

“With the examination completed, it has now become imperative for candidates to link their e-mail addresses with their profiles to complete their registration process to facilitate the printing of their results.
 
“To do this, all a candidate needs to do is to visit any accredited CBT centre to get the linkage done after which the e-mail becomes part and parcel of the candidates’ completed profiles,” Benjamin said.

The required linkage of e-mail addresses with candidates’ respective profiles, he said, is to afford them the opportunity of completing the creation of their profiles and enable them to check or print their results from their respective profiles once the linkage is done.
 
“It is to be noted that the Board had initially enabled the link to be done via SMS by candidates from the comfort of their homes but suspended the process to further enhance the functionality of the process through the wholesale automation of the platform,” he said.

Benjamin warned candidates not to give their e-mail passwords to anybody, not even JAMB officials.
 
“As the Board continues to sanitise its processes, it will hold any candidate responsible for any infringement committed by any apprehended fraudster who is found with  his/her password,” he said.

Benjami further stressed that the board has made the process not only free but also user-friendly to attest to its avowed commitment to put a stop to the rampant and unconscionable exploitation of candidates.
