JAMB extends Direct Entry registration by two weeks

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, says it has extended the 2024 Direct Entry (DE) registration by two weeks.

A statement by JAMB’s Public Communication Advisor, Fabian Benjamin, said the extension is to enable all candidates desirous of Direct Entry registration to do so.

Pmnews.ng recalls that the Board commenced the 2024 Direct Entry on Wednesday, 28th February, 2024, and was to have concluded it on Thursday, 28th March, 2024, but on subsequent consideration, has now extended the exercise by two weeks from Wednesday, 28th March, 2024.

Consequently, the registration will close on Thursday, 11th April, 2024.

According to the statement, the extension became necessary following the challenges faced by candidates in going through some of the security screening measures put in place to tackle the cases of fake A’level certificates being paraded by some DE candidates.

The Board, therefore, apologized for the inconveniences caused, pledging that going forward, the process would be made more user-friendly.

JAMB, however, said it will not compromise on its determination to ensure that candidates, whose certificates were dubiously acquired, were prevented from benefiting from such certificates.

It added that candidates whose certificate-issuing institutions are among those on the list of institutions that have not verified their certificates despite repeated requests, would be allowed to register.
