on

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board
(JAMB) will begin the sale of the 2017 Direct Entry
forms and registration of foreign candidates on
July 10.
JAMB’s Head of Public Relations Fabian Benjamin
made this known in an interview with the News
Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Bwari, FCT, on
Monday.
Benjamin said the process of registration for the
Direct Entry was spelt out in the just concluded
Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
He said that candidates for the Direct Entry were
expected to have `Advanced Level, Diploma or its
equivalent, while foreign candidates must possess
proof of residency abroad.
“For the foreign candidates to be eligible to write
examination in a foreign centre, you must have
stayed in the foreign country for at least a
minimum of six months.
“You must have schooled there, you must have
had your secondary education there; you must
show evidence of having stayed there for period of
six months.
“If you have stayed in Nigeria and just fly to
London to register, you are not eligible; you must
have schooled or had your secondary education
outside the country.
“Not that you just finished Senior Secondary
Certificate Examination in 2016, and you are
rushing to the United Kingdom to go and write
your examination,” Benjamin said.
He noted that measures had been put in place to
ensure that candidates who wrote the previous
examination and failed were not registered in
foreign countries, unless they meet the guideline.
Benjamin explained that the Direct Entry would be
sold at the same price previously pegged at
N5,000, adding that the Board was yet to fix the
price for application for foreign candidates.
“We are discussing on that, we are looking at
selling the forms at $100 (N31,525.00) for
Africans and $150 (N47,287.50) for non-Africans,”
he said.
He said that the JAMB Direct Entry was mainly for
people who already possessed a diploma
certificate and wished to do a programme in the
university.
