The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) has rejected the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) Advanced Level as an entry requirement for Direct Entry into tertiary institutions in the country.

This directive became necessary following the discovery that relevant government policies on A/ Level programmes do not permit NABTEB from conducting Advanced Level examinations.

The Board, in a statement signed by the Director of Admissions, Mr Mohammed  Babaji Ahmed and which was made available to Vice-Chancellors and other  Heads of tertiary institutions in the country said that JAMB would not process the admission of any candidate with  NABTEB A/L Certificate.

The statement read in parts: “It has come to the notice of the Board that some institutions are accepting NABTEB A/L  GCE as a qualification for Direct Entry (DE)  Admissions.”

The statement continued, “JAMB is aware that NABTEB is not authorised to offer  GCE and is, therefore, compelled to take  appropriate action.”

The statement warned that “Any A/L GCE Certificate issued by NABTEB is,  therefore, not registrable with JAMB and  the Board would not process the  admission of any candidate with such a result.”

Candidates who wish to enlist for A/Level examinations are to note.
