The 2023 Direct Entry e-PIN registration sales will close on Saturday, 26th May, 2023, while registration of those who obtained the e-PIN ends on Tuesday, 30th May, 2023.

A statement on Tuesday by the Acting Director of Public Affairs JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin says the 2023 DE registration, which commenced in February, 2023, was extended for all desiring candidates to register and was, at a point, suspended to facilitate the incorporation of certain safeguards designed to enhance the sanctity of the exercise.

It says the 2023 DE registration is unique among many others as it came with some features meant to enhance the Board’s capacity to permanently address those loopholes hitherto being exploited by some vested interests.

According to the statement, the Board is restating its determination to always innovate means and ways of checkmating all acts of infractions and at the same time would not hesitate to impose appropriate sanctions on any A’level awarding institutions found wanting.

‘’All A’level institutions are enjoined to be vigilant as there are deliberate intention by desperate candidates to compromise their operations.

All genuine aspiring DE candidates, who are yet to register for the exercise are, therefore, urged to come out now to register as the Board would not entertain any further extension’’.
