JAMB Postpones Direct Entry Registration Till 28th April,2023

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has extended the closing date for the 2023 Direct Entry (DE) registration by one week.This was seen in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Monday by the board’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, after the board’s management meeting. Jamb made it known that the consideration does not include people awaiting cambridge certificate as ‘’Awaiting Result’’ would not be granted or accepted.

The Board head of public Affairs and protocol, Dr.Benjamin made it known that the DE registration exercise, which commenced on Monday, March 20, 2023, and billed to end on Thursday, April 20, 2023, had been extended by one week starting from Friday, April 21, 2023. According to him, the extension was partly to give all holders of Cambridge A/Level Certificates, who were unable to register for the exercise on account of some issues associated with the verification of their certificates another opportunity to do so.He said it would as well accommodate others, who wish to register but were unable to do so within the stipulated time.

“It should be noted that in its bid to ensure the Cambridge A/L Certificate is onboarded in the verification process, the British Council is partnering with the board.

He equally said that it will be providing a verification portal for the seamless verification of its Cambridge Certificates as obtained with other categories of A/Level certificates.”It is this provision of a verification portal by the Council that informed the board’s decision to reconsider its earlier stand on non-inclusion of Cambridge certificate for DE registration. “Consequently, all holders of Cambridge Certificates, who desire to register for the 2023 Direct Entry, can now proceed to any of the board’s offices nearest to them to register for the exercise,” he said.

“It would be recalled that the board, after series of discoveries of falsification of A/Level results, modified its DE registration platform to ensure, among others, that only certificates with verifiable processes are allowed as entry requirements for the DE exercise. “To streamline the process, the board had also published a number of certificates that are allowed for DE registration which had, hitherto, excluded the Cambridge Certificate.
