The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says the registration for this year’s Direct Entry (DE) will end on May 30 2023, also the sales of e-pin for the exercise will end on May 26, 2023.

This was disclosed in a statement released on Tuesday, by Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB spokesperson.

“The 2023 DE registration, which commenced in February 2023, was extended for all desiring candidates to register and was, at a point, suspended to facilitate the incorporation of certain safeguards designed to enhance the sanctity of the exercise,” the statement reads.

“The board has adopted a scheduling system whereby candidates are allocated to specific days for their DE registration to preclude any further incidence of overcrowding.

“All genuine aspiring DE candidates, who are yet to register for the exercise are, therefore, urged to come out now to register as the board would not entertain any further extension.”

JAMB also warned candidates against attempts to compromise the exam process, adding that anyone caught would be sanctioned.

“One good thing about the exercise is that the Board has captured only deserving candidates with pockets of outstanding candidates remaining in a couple of Board’s offices, particularly in Lagos. Even here, the Board has adopted a scheduling system whereby candidates are allocated to specific DE registration days to preclude further overcrowding.

JAMB frowned at unwholesome practices by some tutorial centres and parents conniving with some A’level centres to sabotage its efforts to sanitise the education sector.

He reiterated JAMB’s commitment to checkmating all acts of infractions.

“The attention of the board has also been drawn to the unwholesome actions of some tutorial centres and some desperate parents, who are conniving with some A’ level tutorial centres to perpetrate acts prejudicial to the education sector and national interests,” it added.

“Consequently, the board is restating its determination to always innovate means and ways of checkmating all acts of infractions and at the same time would not hesitate to impose appropriate sanctions on any A’level awarding institutions found wanting.

“All A’level institutions are enjoined to be vigilant as there are deliberate intentions by desperate candidates to compromise their operations.”
