    • 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?

    • If you are asking about “how to get back all JAMB details sent to you using the new email” see answer below…

      ANS: Sorry, if you do not have access into the same email address you have been using to get information then there is no way to get those information. Once you create a new email and link it with JAMB or any other website or services then you start getting fresh information. All information will be fresh.

      Alternativly, you can ask those websites like JAMB or others, to resend you the information you wanted into so so so email address account (which you may be creating now) they may respond to that request and you get back the information that was in your old email.

      But if you are asking “how to get every information” no specification… Answer
      ANS: if you have tried all posiible and avilable ways to gain access into your account, (including) did you regiter your phone number on your email account?? OR did you include an alternative email address????
      If yes, then your account is not lost yet, you can reset the password and get bank access into the email account.

      But if No, then you have to forget the account and proceed getting a new account. Click the click below to;
