JAMB Extends 2023 Direct Entry Registration
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has extended the registration deadline for the ongoing 2023 Direct Entry (DE).
In a statement shortly after its management meeting on Monday, the Board said the DE registration exercise, which commenced on Monday, March 20, 2023, and initially billed to end on Thursday, April 20, 2023, has been extended by one week starting from Friday, April 21, 2023.
This extension, according to JAMB spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin, 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, as well as 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 that the Cambridge A/L Certificate is onboarded in the verification process, the British Council is partnering with the Board and, as such, would be providing a verification portal for the seamless verification of its Cambridge Certificates as obtains with other categories of A/Level certificates. It is this provision of a verification portal by the Council that informs 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.
“This consideration does not in any way include candidates awaiting Cambridge Certificates as “Awaiting Results” would not be accepted,” 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.
