The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says the 2023 direct entry e-PIN sales would close on May 26, while registration of candidates who obtained the e-PIN will end on May 30.

In a statement on Tuesday, the board’s spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, said the 2023 direct entry registration, which commenced in February, was extended for all desiring candidates to register.

He said it was later suspended to facilitate the incorporation of certain safeguards designed to enhance the sanctity of the exercise.

”All genuine aspiring candidates who are yet to register for the exercise are urged to register as the board would not entertain any further extension,” he said.

Mr Benjamin said the 2023 DE registration is unique among many others.

He said it came with features to enhance the board’s capacity to permanently address those loopholes, hitherto being exploited by some vested interests.

”It is, therefore, not at all surprising to witness the surge in the number of candidates in one or two of our offices. The new regime has exposed the quantum of cases of falsifications and other infractions in the DE value chain,“ he said.

Mr Benjamin explained that the exercise had enabled the board to capture only deserving candidates, with only pockets of outstanding candidates remaining in a couple of board’s offices, particularly in Lagos.

The spokesman said the board had adopted a scheduling system where candidates are allocated to specific days for their registration to preclude any further incidence of overcrowding.

The JAMB official said the board was aware of the unwholesome actions of some tutorial centres and some desperate parents, conniving with some A-level tutorial centres to perpetrate acts inimical to the education sector and national interests.

Mr Benjamin also mentioned that the board would not hesitate to impose appropriate sanctions on any A-level awarding institutions found wanting.
