JAMB announces date for sale of Direct Entry registration



The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announced that the nationwide sale of Direct Entry (DE) registration, including in selected foreign centers, is scheduled to commence on Wednesday. Fabian Benjamin, the Public Communications Advisor at JAMB, stated in a release on Tuesday, February 27, that the registration process will begin on Wednesday, February 28, and conclude on Thursday, March 28.

Benjamin emphasized that the sale of DE is open to foreign candidates seeking tertiary education in Nigeria through the Direct Entry mode. He assured the public that JAMB is committed to maintaining a fair and equitable process for all candidates, regardless of their status.

However, he cautioned that the board would not process applications from awarding institutions that have consistently refused to verify A’level certificates presented by candidates for the 2023 admission. Candidates not awaiting results must upload their A’level qualifications, O’level results, and DE registration template during registration. No DE candidate will be processed for admission until their claimed results are uploaded and verified by the awarding institutions on the Board’s Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) mail platform.

For DE candidates awaiting A’level results of IJMB/JUPEB/NABTEB at the point of registration, they must upload their Admission Letter and Registration Template. Applicants with Cambridge certificates for the pre-2018 examination year are directed to visit Cambridge directly for verification, which may take up to 28 days. The verification result will be forwarded to the Board, and the outcome will be reflected on the e-Facility profile of the DE candidate.

Furthermore, the Board allows a window of opportunity for upgrading from UTME to DE, specifically for candidates whose DE results have not been released at the UTME registration point. These candidates must have indicated during registration that they are awaiting A’level results, providing the necessary details in the uploaded registration template.
