Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB has extended the 2023 Direct Entry, DE registration exercise which commenced on Monday, 20th March, 2023, and was billed to end on Thursday, 20th April, one week starting from Friday 21st April, 2023.

In a statement by Jamb spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, shortly after the management meeting on Monday, 17th April, 2023, disclosed that the extension was to allow holders of Cambridge A/Level certificates, yet to register to do so within the time frame.

“It should be noted that in its bid to ensure that the Cambridge A/L Certificate is on board with 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”.

“This consideration does not in any way include candidates awaiting Cambridge Certificates as “Awaiting Results” would not be accepted”.

The registration process has been modified to check falsifications of A/Level results by Jamb.
