Check Out Steps To Register For UTME As JAMB Scraps Use Of Email

Earlier today, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has announced to candidates, as well as the general public that the use of E-mails would no longer be needed for registration for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, and Direct Entry as well.

This announcement was confirmed by Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the Registrar and Head of JAMB, who explained that the use of E-mails will only commence, after the conclusion of the 2020/21 UTME and DE registration.

Speaking with journalists, Prof. Oloyode said the decision to cancel the use of E-mails for UTME and Direct Entry registration was made by JAMB in order to ensure that candidates' personal information is not revealed to some dubious cyber cafes workers.

He said, "Starting from Thursday, April 15, the use of E-mails for both UTME and Direct Entry registration will no longer be necessary. This is to ensure that candidates' information is not disclosed to dubious cyber cafe workers."

According to the Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the use of E-mails will no longer be needed for UTME registration. Rather, candidates will only need to provide a valid mobile number to complete his or her UTME registration.

Steps On How To Register For 2020/21 UTME Registration

1. Download the JAMB Mobile App on your phone and input your mobile number to register for the 2020/21 UTME and DE.

2. For those who prefer to register in cyber cafes, your mobile number remains the major tool for the 2020/21 UTME registration.

Note: After or during registration, candidates has the option to either use the JAMB Mobile App to access their profile, or use the 55019 option.

According to Prof. Oloyede, candidates will be required to provide their phone numbers to register for the 2020/21 UTME. He further stated that printing of examination slips or result notification will be done using the candidate's JAMB registration number only.

However, the JAMB CEO also stated that candidates will later be required to use their E-mails after the successful completion of the 2020/21 UTME and Direct Entry (DE) registration exercise.
