The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has resumed the suspended 2023 Direct Entry (DE) registration exercise.
The Board has also released a new guideline for the DE registration to checkmate the alleged use of fake A Level certificates by candidates to secure admission to universities.
Registrar of JAMB, Professor Is-haq Oloyede, who made this known at a news conference on Monday in Abuja, said the DE registration would be closed on 28th April, 2023.
The JAMB Registrar recalled that the Board had commenced the 2023 Direct Entry registration on Monday, 20th February, 2023, but had to immediately suspend it following the discovery of the plethora of devices and machinations to circumvent and compromise the standard of A ‘level qualifications required from DE candidates.
He further noted that recent joint operations of the Federal Ministry of Education and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) on DE qualifications brought to light some of these unsavoury and nefarious activities.
