JAMB extends Direct Entry registration by 2 weeks

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

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

The Board commenced the 2024 Direct Entry on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, and was to end on Thursday, 28th March 28, 2024.

Fabian said on subsequent consideration, the exercise has now been extended by two weeks from March 28, 2024.

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

According to Fabian, 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 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.
