The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said prospective candidates can no longer register for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) without providing their email addresses.
The board in a statement released on Monday, January 30, 2023, said the policy would take effect from 31st January 2023.
It affirmed that the review of its advisory on the ongoing UTME registration was to ensure best practices are followed in the process of capturing all relevant data pertaining to candidates.
The board added that the latest advisory, aside from aiding in eliciting relevant and up-to-date data of candidates, will also facilitate cheap and efficient transmission of urgent and vital communication to candidates.
The statement issued by the Head, Public Affairs and Protocol of JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin partly reads; “Candidates are, therefore, advised to get their genuine email addresses before proceeding with UTME registration.
“In addition, candidates are to ensure that their passwords are kept securely as the board does not retrieve lost email passwords or change email addresses once registered.”
Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that JAMB commenced registration for the 2023 UTME on January 14, and will end on February 14, 2023.
The board is also scheduled to conduct the 2023 UTME on April 29 and end on May 12.
