The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has extended the deadline for candidates seeking admission to universities to participate in the ongoing Direct Entry, DE, registration.

Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, said this in a statement issued on Sunday.

He stated that the board had postponed the continuation of its Direct Entry registration, which was set to close on Thursday, April 20, but had been extended by one week to continue on Saturday, May 6, when the 2023 UTME and national census exercise would have ended.

“This development is to accommodate the conduct of the board’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, billed to start on Tuesday, April 25 and end on Wednesday, May 3.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has extended the deadline of the ongoing Direct Entry, DE, registration for candidates seeking admissions into universities.

JAMB’s Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known in a statement issued on Sunday.

He said the board had postponed the continuation of its Direct Entry registration, which was scheduled to close on Thursday, April 20, but was extended by one week to continue on Saturday, May 6, when the 2023 UTME and the national census exercise would have ended.

“This development is to accommodate the conduct of the board’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, billed to start on Tuesday, April 25 and end on Wednesday, May 3.

“It is also to accommodate the National Census scheduled to start on Wednesday, May 3, and end on Friday, May, 5.

“Candidates desiring to register for the DE exercise are, therefore, directed to ensure that they obtain their DE ePINs from designated vending outlets on or before April 30, when ePIN vending will be closed.

“Candidates are then expected to proceed to the board’s offices from Saturday, April 6, to Saturday, May 13, to complete their registration procedure,” he said.

He stated that the board told candidates seeking DE registration that none would be denied the right to register as long as they followed the board’s directions and registered within the time limit specified.

As a result, he sought applicants’ understanding as it implemented certain novel methods targeted at reducing the occurrence of falsification of results, data, and other transgressions.
