The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has resumed the 2023 Direct Entry (DE) registration exercise.

Registrar of JAMB, Professor Is-haq Oloyede, who stated this at a briefing on Monday in Abuja, said the DE registration would come to a close on 28th April, 2023.

He said there were high level of forgery of A Level certificates used for the registration, and as such the Board has introduced new guidelines to checkmate such act.

He said, “The Board commenced the 2023 Direct Entry registration on Monday, 20th February, 2023, but had to immediately suspend it following the discovery of the plethora of devices and machinations to circumvent and compromise the standard of A ‘level qualifications required from DE candidates.”

Prof Oloyede noted that recent joint operations of the Federal Ministry of Education and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) on DE qualifications brought to light some of these unsavoury and nefarious activities.

According to him, the Board, concerned stakeholders and institutions are working assiduously to detect such and the ones already found, are being dealt with according to the provisions of the law.

He said to further checkmate the anomaly and to also prevent recurrence of such irregularity, the Board has decided that the 2023 DE registrations will not only be restricted to JAMB Professional Test Centres (PTCs) but will also be done under strict supervision.

He said at the point of registration, all candidates must fill in registration/matriculation number of the previous school attended where the qualification was obtained; subject(s) of qualification; awarding institution and institution attended.

Speaking further, Oloyede said the Board would only accept 13 qualifications/certificates for the 2023 Direct Entry registration exercise, which include first degree, university diploma,

Higher National Diploma (HND), Ordinary National Diploma /National Diploma (OND/ND) and Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE).
