2022 UTME: JAMB Asks Direct Entry Candidates To Link E-mail With Profiles

Candidates seeking admission into universities in Nigeria for the 2022/2023 academic session  through Direct Entry (DE) have been asked by  the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to link  their  e-mail addresses with their profiles

Board’s Head of Public
Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin who issued the directive in a statement on Monday, urged candidates who had registered for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) but have not linked e-mail addresses,  to visit any JAMB’s approved Computer Based Test (CBT) centres to do so without delay , saying the process is entirely free.
Benjamin said during the 2022 UTME/DE registration, JAMB barred
candidates from linking their email addresses to the registration

He explained that the exclusion of e-mail address at that stage, 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 .

According to him, 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", the statement stated 

“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.

He added in the statement that the required linkage of e-mail addresses with candidates’ respective
profiles, would 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.
