      2. You are not logging in with the linked email address, you need to log in with the JAMB registered or linked email address. If not you will keep getting an “invalid email” response until you use your registered or linked email address.

      3. It might also be that you made a slight mistake while typing your email address.

      A typo error can also be the reason for an invalid email or password response. Therefore confirm that your email address and password, and its characters is typed correctly.

      4. It could also be that you entered an incorrect password.

      Probably you have tried all you could to solve the invalid email problem but it continues. If that is the case you do email or password recovery.
