JAMB resumes Direct Entry registration, lists acceptable A-level results

By Collins Mbakwe

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday announced that the previously suspended Direct Entry (DE) registration process had been restarted.

Ishaq Oloyede, the board’s registrar, revealed this at a press conference and added that the board has also implemented new procedures to prevent the use of fraudulent A-level certificates.

The registration had been suspended by JAMB on February 21 just one day after it had started, citing the need to implement some new measures.

When the board learned that registrants had created ways to get around the ‘A’ Level requirements demanded of DE candidates, Mr. Oloyede claimed the board made the decision to stop the registration.
He continued by saying that all candidates who had registered prior to the suspension of registration will be asked to visit the registration centres again and revise their applications.

According to him, the registration period will now run from March 21 through April 28, inclusive. Originally, it was supposed to finish on April 20.

Only 13 qualifications would be accepted by the board for the 2023 Direct Entry Registration, according to the JAMB Registrar.

The Ordinary National Diploma (OND), National Diploma (ND), Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE), Higher National Diploma (HND), and a university degree were all included in his list.

Others include; Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB), Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board (JUPED), NABTEB Advanced National Business Certificate, NABTEB Advanced National Technical Certificate, NABTEB GCE-A’ Level (2015 – 2021), Higher Islamic Studies Certificate by NBAIS, International Baccalaureate and the National Registered Nurse/ Midwife certificates.

Recall that it was reported last year how Bayero University Kano (BUK) expelled 178 students over the use of fake A-level results.

The board had also inaugurated an A-Level Task Team headed by former vice-chancellor of BUK, Yahuza Bello, and tasked them with the establishment of an A-level Data Bank to upload all IJMB and JUPEB results for eventual integration into JAMB’s Central Admission Process System (CAPS), for result verification purposes.
