The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says no registration for candidates without an email address from January 31.
This is contained in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, in Abuja on Monday.
Mr Benjamin said the review of the advisory on the ongoing UTME registration by JAMB was to ensure that best practices were followed in the process of capturing all relevant data pertaining to the candidates.
He said the latest advisory, aside from aiding in eliciting relevant and up-to-date data of candidates, was also imperative in facilitating the transmission of urgent and vital communication to candidates cheaply and efficiently.
“Furthermore, email provides more flexibility in communication and is a more professional way of reaching out to candidates.
“Candidates are, therefore, advised to get their genuine email addresses before proceeding to UTME registration.
” In addition, candidates are to ensure that their passwords are kept securely, as the board does not retrieve lost email passwords or change email addresses once registered,” he said.
