JAMB commences direct entry registration February 28




The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has begun selling direct entry registration forms across the country and in certain overseas destinations.

JAMB’s spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, stated on Tuesday that the “registration process starts on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, and closes on Thursday, March 28, 2024.”

“The sale is open to foreign candidates desirous of tertiary education in Nigeria through the direct entry mode. Furthermore, the board will continue to ensure a level playing field for all candidates, irrespective of status, it explained.

However, it warned that ”The Board would not process candidates’ applications from all awarding institutions that have refused to honor several requests for the verification of their A’level certificates presented by some candidates for the 2023 admission.”

JAMB’s statement partly reads, “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.”

JAMB further added that, “DE candidates, who at the point of registration are awaiting A’level results of IJMB, JUPEB, or 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 will be forwarded to the board. The verification would be reflected on the e-Facility profile of the DE candidate. A statement of results (instead of a certificate) is accepted for registration only within three years of the date of the 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.”
