The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced February 28 for the commencement of the sale of Direct Entry (DE) forms nationwide.


The registration process, the board said in a statement on Tuesday, will close on March 28.

The sale, the board added, is open to foreign candidates desirous of tertiary education in Nigeria through the Direct Entry mode.

Fabian Benjamin, the board’s national spokesperson, said JAMB would not process applications from institutions that have refused to honour several requests for the verification of their A’level certificates presented by some candidates for the 2023 admission.


He said candidates who are not awaiting results must have uploaded their A’ level qualifications, O’level results, and DE registration template at the point of registration.

He said no DE candidates would be processed for admission until such claimed results are uploaded and verified by the awarding institutions on the board’s Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) mail platform.

Benjamin said DE candidates, who at the point of registration are awaiting A’level results of IJMB/JUPEB/NABTEB, must have uploaded their admission letter and registration template at the point of registration.


He said applicants with Cambridge certificates for the pre-2018 examination year should visit Cambridge directly for verification.

“This verification exercise may take up to 28 days (as specified by the awarding body) after which the verification result would be forwarded to the Board,” the JAMB spokesperson said.

“The verification would be reflected on the e-Facility profile of the DE candidate. Statement of results is accepted for registration only within three years of the date of award.”

Benjamin said JAMB will allow upgrades from UTME to DE for candidates whose DE results have not been released at the point of UTME registration and who must have indicated at the point of registration that he/she is awaiting A-level results.
