JAMB Rejects NABTEB A'Level as Entry Requirement for DE Admission



Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will not accept National Business and Technical Examinations Board ( NABTEB) advanced level certificate as an entry requirement for Direct Entry into tertiary institutions.

JAMB Rejects NABTEB A'Level as Entry Requirement for DE Admission

The board said the directive became necessary following the discovery that relevant government policies on A-Level programmes do not permit NABTEB from conducting Advanced Level examinations.

A statement by its Director of Admissions, Mohammed Ahmed, which was made available to vice-chancellors and other heads of tertiary institutions in the country, said JAMB would not process the admission of any candidate with NABTEB A/L Certificate.

The statement reads: “It has come to the notice of the Board that some institutions are accepting NABTEB A/L GCE as a qualification for Direct Entry (DE) Admissions.

“JAMB is aware that NABTEB is not authorised to offer GCE and is, therefore, compelled to take appropriate action.”

It added: “Any A/L GCE Certificate issued by NABTEB is, therefore, not registrable with JAMB and the board would not process the admission of any candidate with such a result.

“Candidates who wish to enlist for A/Level examinations are to note.”
