NABTEB Not Acceptable As Requirement For Direct Entry Admission – JAMB


2022 JAMB Result: JAMB Gives Update On Release Of 2022 UTME Results

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), on Monday, stated that the National Business and Technical Examinations Board, (NABTEB) advanced level certificate is not acceptable as a requirement for Direct Entry into tertiary institutions.

The examination body noted that the decision was reached following the discovery that relevant government policies on A/Level programmes do not permit NABTEB from conducting Advanced Level examinations.

JAMB in a statement released through its Director of Admissions, Mohammed Ahmed, and forwarded to Vice-Chancellors and other Heads of tertiary institutions in the country, said it 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 Admissions.

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

“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.”
