  5. please the email I used in registering for jamb has been disable.. and when I tried logging in my jamb profile it keep telling me invalid email or password.. I have to reset my password through my email and the email has been disabled.. please what do I do sir??

    1. If your email account was disabled that shouldn’t stop you from logging into your JAMB profile account (if you type it incorrectly). But the only place you should start having problem is where JAMB wants to send you something important via email that you will not get it, cos as you said that your email account is disabled.

      But right now you can login even when the email is disabled or deleted, cos JAMB and email services are not working together. You only create the email for it to be your login ID and to receive and send information (data).

  6. pls, my first name is used in place of my sunname, midlename in place of first name while my sunname is in place of midlename. any need to change?
