Choosing the right email address
Please avoid using emails like; “email@example.com” or “firstname.lastname@example.org”. Whatever names you were called at secondary school, should remain at your secondary school. It’s time to get serious!
I’ll expect you choose an email address that puts you in a good light, because you may end up using this email for the rest of your life; for University Registration, Job Applications, Travel Abroad, Scholarships e.t.c.
The preferable format for your email address should be a combination of your names in such format as; [First Name][.(dot) or _(underscore)][Surname]@gmail.com. A good example will be Lade. email@example.com. It doesn’t matter how long your name is, it will still look good and serious.
It’s also okay for you to use known short forms of your name such as Ayo for Ayomide or Amaka for Chiamaka. Just be creative, and keep your nicknames out of your official emails. Sometimes, the situation permits stage names, but for JAMB or other serious stuff. You can always create another email for that. It’s free!
Creating your free Email
I will always recommend Gmail to Yahoo, because it is fast and easy to use. Which ever you think works for you, it’s fine. You can even create one email from each service. That’s your call, really.
Once the website above loads up, click on “Create Account”. You will be require to fill a form, and if possible verify with your phone number. Just fill the details required and open the email.
Once your email is ready, then you know you are a step closer to a successful JAMB registration.
Please create your email right now. It could take you only about 5 minutes, so do it now and do it right before JAMB registration begins.
