Commencement of 2023 JAMB Direct Entry Registration:

The JAMB Direct Entry registration is scheduled to commence on Monday, 20th March 2023. This comes after the initial start date of 20th February was suspended due to the discovery of numerous attempts to compromise the standard of A’ Level qualifications required for DE candidates.
