JAMB Begins Sales Of Direct Entry Forms.


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board
(JAMB) has commenced the sale of Direct Entry
application form for candidates who have A-level
results and wish to gain direct admission to
degree programmes in Nigerian tertiary
JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, said this in
a statement made available on Tuesday.
The board has equally commenced the sale of
UTME application for Nigerians abroad and foreign
candidates who desire to attend tertiary
institutions in Nigeria.
He explained that the process is as it was with the
UTME, where you create a profile and obtain the
PINS and proceed for biometric capturing at the
CBT centres for Direct Entry candidates.
The board urged all candidates wishing to register
through direct entry to obtain the PINS at
Interswitch, Remita or any of the commercial
banks approved earlier for the vending of UTME
According to him, “the Board wishes to state that
it has not commenced the change of course and
institutions as all the approved CBT centres
nationwide will be informed about when to start “.
He said candidates need not necessarily come to
the Board’s centres for the change. It can be done
in any of the CBT centres in order to avoid
“The delay has been occasioned by the Board’s
preparation to ensure that the system is smooth
and without encumbrances,” Mr Benjamin said.
He said the public should note that every candidate
desirous of a change of course or institution will
be allowed to do so as the platform will be open
until the close of admission.
“Candidates need not panic or get desperate as it
will not be closed as being speculated by those
who want to use the opportunity of candidates
desperation to defraud them”.
The board advised the candidates not to patronise
fraudulent individuals or organisations but to visit
approved CBT centres and cross check any
information they are not too clear about.
“Again, we will continue to enjoin candidates not to
be victims of fraudsters who claim to have the
capacity to inflate candidates scores, as they do
not have such ability.
“When caught, the Board will prosecute both the
fraudsters and the candidate who patronise them,”
Mr. Benjamin warned.
He added that the board has not determined the
cut off marks for 2017.
“This is only done at a policy committee meeting
with all stakeholders chaired by the Hon Minister
of Education which is yet to hold,” he stressed.
