About The JAMB 2023 Extension For Direct Entry Registration
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) extension for the DE candidates is to give holders of Cambridge A/Level Certificates the opportunity to register.
The British Council is partnering with the Board to provide a verification portal for the Cambridge Certificates. Candidates awaiting Cambridge Certificates will not be accepted.
According to JAMB spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, “It should be noted that in its bid to ensure that the Cambridge A/L Certificate is onboarded in the verification process, the British Council is partnering with the Board and, as such, would be providing a verification portal for the seamless verification of its Cambridge Certificates as obtains with other categories of A/Level certificates.”
The board has made it mandatory for all prospective DE candidates to obtain their scratch cards from accredited CBT centers so as to access their personal profiles on the JAMB portal for registration purposes.
