2024 JAMB News

The Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB), announced that all candidates registering for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) should have a functional email address.

According to Benjamin, using email ensures the process of capturing all necessary data relating to the candidates will be more flexible and convenient. 

But, your email address will not be used to recover passwords or changed once you register for the exam.

 Using your email will also make it easier for the Board to transmit urgent and important communication to you in a cheap and efficient manner.

Without an email address, no candidate will be registered henceforth for the jamb 2024 exam.

Another thing to note is that JAMB has taken action against e-Tranzact and suspended it from being its payment vendor for the 2024 UTME e-pins. The board did this because some of its agents especially this one have been extorting candidates registering for the 2024 UTME.
