The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has extended the 2024 Direct Entry (DE) registration by two weeks.

The examination body said the extension was to allow all intending candidates to register.

It would be recalled that the Board commenced the 2024 Direct Entry on Wednesday, 28th February, 2024, and was to have concluded it on Thursday, 28th March, 2024.

Considering the need to allow more candidates to partake in the registration, JAMB has now extended the exercise by two weeks to Thursday, 11th April, 2024.

A statement by JAMB Public Communication Advisor, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, 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 Direct Entry candidates.

He said, “The Board apologises for the inconveniences caused prospective DE candidates and pledges that, going forward, 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.

“It is also to be noted that candidates, whose certificate-issuing institutions are among those on the list of institutions that have not verified their certificates despite repeated requests, would be allowed to register without doing the needful,” the statement read.

Benjamin added that the Board would brief the media in due course.
