The registration for Direct Entry has been extended by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB by two weeks.
In a statement by its spokesman, Fabian Benjamin; the board explained that the action was aimed at enabling all candidates desirous of registration to do so.
JAMB had on Wednesday commenced the 2024 Direct Entry registration on Wednesday, 28th February, 2024, and was to have concluded it on Thursday, 28th March, 2024.
The body said that on subsequent consideration, it has extended the exercise by two weeks; hence, the registration will now close on Thursday, 11th April, 2024.
JAMB said the extension became necessary following the challenges faced by candidates in going through some of the security screening measures put in place to arrest the rampant and embarrassing cases of fake A’level certificates being paraded by some DE candidates.
The Board apologised for the inconveniences to prospective Direct Entry candidates and pledged that henceforth, the process would be made more user-friendly.
“However, in doing this, the Board will not compromise on its avowed determination to ensure that candidates, whose certificates were dubiously acquired are prevented from benefiting from such certificates.
JAMB added that candidates, whose certificate-issuing institution are among those on the list of institutions that have not verified their certificates despite repeated requests, would not be allowed to register without doing the needful.
