The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has resumed the registration process for Direct Entry (DE) candidates for the 2023 academic year. However, in light of recent events, the board has set new guidelines to curb the forgery of ‘A’ level certificates.
JAMB, which is responsible for conducting the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) examinations, has been taking measures to ensure that the admission process is transparent and credible. The board has had to deal with several cases of forgery of ‘A’ level certificates in the past, which has led to a loss of confidence in the admission process.
To tackle this issue, JAMB has set new guidelines for the verification of ‘A’ level certificates. Candidates are now required to upload their ‘A’ level certificates during the registration process. The board will then verify the certificates with the issuing institutions before granting admission to candidates.
The board has also introduced a penalty for candidates found guilty of submitting forged ‘A’ level certificates. Such candidates will be disqualified from admission into any tertiary institution in Nigeria for five years. The board has also warned candidates against engaging in any form of examination malpractice during the registration process.
The resumption of the Direct Entry registration process is good news for candidates who wish to gain admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria through the DE route. However, candidates are advised to follow the guidelines set by JAMB and ensure that they do not engage in any form of examination malpractice.
JAMB’s efforts to curb the forgery of ‘A’ level certificates and ensure the credibility of the admission process is commendable. It is important for candidates to adhere to the guidelines set by the board and avoid engaging in any form of examination malpractice. With the proper measures in place, the admission process can be made more transparent and credible, which will benefit all stakeholders involved.
