Its Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said email addresses of applicants will only be requested at the successful completion of the registration to access information on the examination.

He said as from Thursday, April 15, 2021, candidates will no longer be required to provide any email address during registration, adding that consequently, candidates will have the options to access their profile during or after registration.

The JAMB boss said the new system is to ensure candidates’ information are not exposed to dubious cyber cafe operators and other criminal elements who in the course of UTME/DE registration steal email passwords to perpetrate fraud.
