Candidates will no longer be able to register for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) or Direct Entry using email, according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) (DE).

Prof Is-haq Oloyede, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, reported this to journalists on Tuesday evening.

Candidates will only need email after successfully completing the registration process to access information about the test, according to Oloyede.


He said, 
“As from Thursday, April 15, 2021, candidates will no longer be required to provide any email address during registration.”

Candidates can access their profiles through the mobile app either during or after registration.

They can also text the word email (space followed by the email address) to 55019 from his or her registered phone.

He went on to say that a candidate's cell phone is now the only big tool for completing all of the registration processes.
