How To Link Email to JAMB 2022 Profile and CAPS

The easiest way to link email to JAMB profile/CAPS
A few candidates had already learned that the JAMB profile creation method used last year was different from the one used this year and probably henceforth. However, some candidates were still not sure how to create their profiles or link their profiles with email and vice versa.


For your information, you'd all created your profiles during JAMB/DE registration when you sent your NIN to 55019/66019. With that, JAMB has imported your National ID card information into your JAMB profile. Hence, the information on your NIN is the same as that on your JAMB profile.


However, unlike the previous years' candidates, you weren't able to log in to that profile because there is a new method to be able to do that. You will learn about the new method in this post.


I will cover:


  1. how to link email with your JAMB profile using SMS
  2. how to link without using SMS

All UTME and DE Applicants Must Link Their Functioning Emails With Their Profile First

The new method requires all UTME and DE candidates to link their emails with their JAMB profile first using SMS platforms. This was because, during your JAMB UTME/DE registration, no candidate was asked to provide an email for the profile creation. Though you might have used email to buy PIN, that didn't mean you used email for the registration per se.


Hence, in other to log in to your profile, starting from the 2021/2022 admission year, you must now create an email if you don't have one already. Then, link it with your existing JAMB profile.


If you have one already, confirm, first, that you can successfully log in to that email before you use it for the activity below.

How to Link Your Working Email with Your JAMB Profile Using SMS

Below is the step-by-step guide to link your existing email to the JAMB Profile.

  1. On your mobile phone (using the line used to get your profile code), text as follows: "email youremail youremail" and send to 55019/66019.
  2. For example, text email [email protected] [email protected]
  3. Now, send it to 55019/66019
  4. Note that the first word I typed was "email" followed by space, followed by the email, followed by space, and then the email again
  5. In my case, it will look like, email [email protected] [email protected]
  6. After sending the message to 55019/66019, your line will be debited at #50
  7. After this, log in to your email and look for an email message from JAMB
  8. The email message will contain a unique password (e.g candb26ec1) that you will be using to log in to your JAMB profile.
  9. Now, visit https://portal.jamb.gov.ng/efacility./. Here, you will use the email and the password received from JAMB to you to log in.
  10. That's all!

How To Link Your Email to the JAMB Profile Using a CBT Centre

For some reasons,

  1. if you don't have the phone number used for the JAMB registration again
  2. if you don't have any phone to do the SMS or to access email
  3. or any other reasons, whatsoever, which may not make the SMS method work for you,

you can just use the service of any accredited CBT centre around you. These people will manually link your email with your JAMB profile and help access your email to retrieve the password to be sent to you.

How To Access CAPS After Linking Your Email to Your JAMB Profile

Of course, as soon as you log in to your CAPS as directed above, you're ultimately on your JAMB CAPS.

But in order to specifically proceed to the JAMB CAPS section inside your profile, follow the guide below.

  1. On your profile dashboard, scroll up to locate "Check Admission Status" and click on that
  2. On the resulting page, choose your year of admission and enter your JAMB registration number (if it's not already there).
  3. On this page, you can Access CAPS (by the left) or Check Admission Status (by the right). Since we're talking of the CAPS checking, for now, click on the former.
  4. On the next page, you will see "Welcome" at the top of the page and other facilities by the left of the page.

 
NOTE: Those using phones should use Chrome here to see other facilities. Then, make sure you set your page to a Desktop Site. To do that, click on the three dots at the top or bottom corner of your browser. Then, choose the Desktop Site. The left side of the "welcome" will appear. See more through, "JAMB Profile/CAPS is Blank with "Welcome", Solutions!"

On Getting to Your CAPS Section, You Can Access the Following

Checking your JAMB CAPS, you will have access to the following facilities. Below are their meanings and how they can be of help.

  1. My Profile: This will show your basic bio-data including name, gender, date of birth, state of origin, and UTME score.
  2. My O'Level: This shows if your O'level results were truly uploaded by the CBT center you used.
  3. Admission Status: This is where you will see the school that offers (or will offer) you admission. There, you'll accept or reject the offer. See Institution and Course Not Showing (Blank) in CAPS? Reasons and Solutions
  4. Marketplace: If your main proposed school refuses to give you admission, JAMB may present you with a few other institutions with available spaces. Then, you're to accept or reject such an open offer in the marketplace. See JAMB Marketplace Gives You Admission to Other Universities
  5. Transfer Approval: Here is a place to know if your proposed first-choice institution is trying to offer you another course than what you proposed. If you accept, you will be offered the new course. If otherwise, you will remain with the old one. And your chance in the old one may not be that broad. See Is it Advisable to Accept Another Course Than The One I Applied For?

    1. First, create an email. Take t to a CBT to link the email with your last JAMB portal. After that, a password will be sent to the email you linked. Then, log in to JAMB portal using the email and the password received. After logging in, you will see your last profile code at the top of your dashboard. That you will use to buy JAMB form this year too.
