JAMB announces date to begin Direct Entry registration

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that Direct Entry (DE) registrations will be available domestically and in certain international locations commencing Wednesday.

Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s public communications advisor, said on Tuesday, February 27, that the registration process would commence on Wednesday, February 28, and end on Thursday, March 28.

Benjamin stated that the selling of DE was open to overseas candidates seeking postsecondary education in Nigeria via the Direct Entry option.

The JAMB spokesperson informed the public that the board will maintain an equal playing field for all candidates, regardless of status.

He, however, warned that the board will not process candidates’ applications from all awarding institutions that have refused to fulfill multiple demands for the verification of their A’level certificates given by some candidates for the 2023 entrance.

The statement said: “Candidates who are not awaiting results, must have uploaded their A’ level qualifications, O’level results and DE registration template at the point of registration as no DE candidates would be processed for admission until such claimed results are uploaded and verified by the awarding institutions on the Board’s Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) mail platform.

“DE candidates, who at the point of registration are awaiting A’level results of IJMB/JUPEB/NABTEB, must have uploaded their Admission Letter and Registration Template at the point of registration. Applicants with Cambridge certificates for the pre-2018 examination year should visit Cambridge directly for verification.

“This verification exercise may take up to 28 days (as specified by the awarding body) after which the verification result would be forwarded to the Board. The verification would be reflected on the e-Facility profile of the DE candidate. Statement of results (in lieu of certificate) is accepted for registration only within three years of the date of award.

“The Board has also given a window of opportunity for upgrading from UTME to DE with a proviso for only candidates whose DE results have not been released at the point of UTME registration and who must have indicated at the point of registration that he/she is awaiting A’level results. The particulars of which he/she must have supplied and contained in the uploaded registration template.”
