The 2023 Direct Entry, Direct Entry e-PIN sales, according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, will end on Saturday, May 26, 2023.
The registration period for people who received an e-PIN expires on Tuesday, May 30, 2023, according to the board.
The 2023 DE registration period began in February 2023 and was extended for all intending candidates to register. At one point, the registration period was suspended to allow for the incorporation of certain measures to enhance the sanctity of the exercise, according to a statement released by JAMB’s acting Director of Public Affairs, Fabian Benjamin, on Tuesday morning.
“The 2023 DE registration is unique among many others because it included some features designed to improve the Board’s ability to permanently address those loopholes previously being exploited by some vested interests,” he added.
“Therefore, it was not at all unexpected to see a spike in the number of applicants for one or two of our offices.
“One of the numerous benefits of the controlled DE registration process is the new regime, which has revealed the number of occurrences of falsifications and other breaches in the DE value chain as stated.
“The board has been successful in capturing only deserving applicants, with only pockets of excellent candidates surviving in a few Board’s offices, mainly in Lagos. This is one positive aspect of the procedure. To prevent any such instances of congestion, the Board has even developed a scheduling system where applicants are assigned specified days for their DE registration.
Fabian pointed out that the examination board has become aware of certain desperate parents’ and tutorial centers’ joint efforts that are harming the educational sector and the interests of the country.
Because of this, he stated, “The Board is reaffirming its resolve to always innovate methods and ways of checkmating all acts of violation and will not hesitate to implement appropriate consequences on any A Level awarding institutions found deficient. All A Level institutions are urged to exercise caution since desperate candidates may be planning to jeopardize their operations.
“All sincere prospective DE candidates who have not yet registered for the exercise are asked to do so immediately because the Board will not grant any more extensions.”
