Joint Admission and Matriculation Board(JAMB) has commenced the sale of Direct Entry Forms.
The board also said that students who went through the Joint
Universities Preliminary Examination Board(JUPEB) programme in various
universities in the country are expected to obtain the DE form in order
to gain admission into 200 level.
According to Mr Fabian Benjamin, the head of information, JAMB stated
that the board has not commenced the sale of change of course or
institution form, warned candidates not to pay N5,000 to any individual
“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. We urge all candidates wishing to register through DE to
obtain the pins at Interswitch, Remita or any of the commercial banks
approved earlier for the vending of UTME pins.”
“The board also wishes to state that it has not commenced the change
of course and institutions. We will soon begin and when we do start, the
changes will be done in all approved CBT centres nationwide. Candidates
need not necessarily come to the board’s centres. It can be done in any
of the CBT centres. This is to avoid overcrowding of our offices for
services that can be obtained at the utmost comfort by the candidates”.
Mr Fabian explained.
“The delay has been
occasioned by our preparation to ensure that the system is smooth and
without encumbrances. The public is urged to 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. In view of
this, candidates are not to patronise any fraudulent individuals or
organisations but to visit approved CBT centres and never to hesitate to
cross check any information they are not clear about.’’
