JAMB commences sale of Direct Entry forms locally and internationally 

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has commenced the sale of direct entry forms across the country and at selected international centres.  

On Tuesday, a statement released by Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s public communication advisor, announced that the registration period begins on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, and ends on Thursday, March 28, 2024. 

Naijaonpoint learns that the opportunity is extended to international candidates seeking tertiary education in Nigeria via the direct entry route. 

Elaborating on the matter, the Board stated that it would not process applications from candidates whose awarding institutions have repeatedly failed to respond to requests for verification of the A’level certificates submitted for the 2023 admissions. 

The Board also advised applicants holding Cambridge certificates before the 2018 examination year to seek verification directly from Cambridge. 

Furthermore, the Board has provided an option for candidates to upgrade from UTME to Direct Entry. 

This option is exclusively available to candidates whose Direct Entry results were unavailable at the time of UTME registration and who had indicated during registration that they were awaiting their A-level results.
