NABTEB No Longer Recognised For Direct Entry – JAMB

Chika Mefor-Nwachukwu

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, said it would no longer consider A’level results by the National Business and Technical Education Board, NABTEB, for candidates seeking direct entry admission into tertiary institutions.

JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede disclosed this during the 2022 policy meeting in Abuja.

According to Oloyede, “The minister of education has approved that NABTEB A’level GCE will no longer be recognised as a qualification for direct entry from 2022. However, all those who have already obtained it prior to this date will be able to use it.”

The JAMB registrar highlighted some of the challenges faced by the board in the conduct of the 2022 UTME/DE examination to include examination malpractices, impersonation and substitution of real candidates by paid examination takers, fraudulent CBT owners who sabotage examination, parents encouraging examination malpractices, mass cheating by syndicates, prolonged investigation and prosecution.
