The Global News reports that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the sale of its Direct Entry forms and registration will commence today nationwide, including selected foreign centers.

This was disclosed in a statement by its Public Communications Advisor, Fabian Benjamin on Wednesday in Abuja.

According to the statement, the registration process would close on Thursday, March 28.

The JAMB spokesperson stated that the sale of Direct Entry forms is available to foreign candidates seeking tertiary education in Nigeria through the Direct Entry mode. He reassured the public that the board remains committed to ensuring a level playing field for all candidates, regardless of their status.

The statement reads partly: “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 as 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.

“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. Applicants with Cambridge certificates of pre-2018 examination year should visit Cambridge directly for verification.

“This verification may take up to 28 days (as specified by the awarding body) after which the verification result would be forwarded to the board. The verification would be reflected on the e-Facility profile of the DE candidate. Statement of results (in lieu of certificate) is accepted for registration only within three years of the date of award.

“The board has also given a window of opportunity for upgrading from UTME to DE with a proviso for only 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, the particulars of which he/she must have supplied and contained in the uploaded registration template.”
