JAMB Extends Direct Entry Registration


MThe Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has extended registration for the Direct Entry.




In a post on X (formerly Twitter) on Thursday, the board assured DE candidates of the possibility of an extension.

However, the examination did not announce a new date for the registration of the exam would come to an end, but it was hoped that the new date for the deadline would soon be communicated.

“Direct Entry registration would not be closing today. The Board is aware of the fact that all through the UTME exercise its offices were closed for DE registration. As such it would avail candidates the opportunity to utilise those lost days,” the post read.




Direct Entry registration is for candidates with A-level results, who are admitted to universities in the second year.

In 2023, JAMB introduced a new verification system for the A’Level results when it discovered that registrants had devised means of circumventing the A’level qualifications required from DE candidates.

The examination body had discovered that some candidates presented fake results, thereby forcing it to introduce strict measures to check the legitimacy of A-level results. This situation has also slowed down the process of registration.




JAMB Registrar, Is-haq Oloyede, also listed 13 acceptable qualifications for Direct Entry Registration. These, he said, include a university diploma, an Ordinary National Diploma, a National Diploma, a Nigeria Certificate in Education, a Higher National Diploma, and a university degree.
