JAMB Suspends 2023 Direct Entry Registration
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has taken a decision to suspend the registration process for Direct Entry (DE) for the year 2023 until further notice.
This decision was communicated by the JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin in a statement on Tuesday.
The registration process for Direct Entry commenced on February 20 and was expected to end on April 20. However, the Board decided to suspend the process immediately to put in place some measures that will serve prospective candidates better.
In the statement, JAMB said the suspension takes immediate effect from February 21 until further notice.
JAMB also assured candidates that a new date and fresh registration procedures would be announced soon.
“Consequently, the Board stated that a new date and fresh registration procedures, which will include upload of JAMB admission letter in the case of OND and NCE, admission letter issued by universities in the case of a university diploma, and admission letter issued by A’ Level examination bodies (IJMBE, JUPEB, etc.), would be announced in due course so that candidates could proceed to JAMB offices nationwide to register,” the statement reads.
Candidates are also advised to note that only JAMB offices are approved to register them for Direct Entry.
In a previous announcement, JAMB revealed that over 1.5 million candidates have been registered for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The indefinite suspension of the Direct Entry registration process shows JAMB’s commitment to ensuring that candidates have the best possible experience while registering for the examination. It is hoped that the new measures being put in place would streamline the registration process and make it more efficient for candidates.
