JAMB bans use of email for registration.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board 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, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, said this while speaking with journalists.

According to him, email would only be requested at the successful completion of the registration exercise by candidates to access information on the examination.

Oloyede said the new system was to ensure candidates’ information are not exposed to dubious cyber cafe operators and other criminal elements who in the course of UTME/ Direct Entry registration steal email passwords to perpetrate fraud.

He said an individual’s mobile phone now remains the only major tool to carry out all the registration.
