Direct Entry JAMB 2024: Big changes are happening in how people get into college through Direct Entry, thanks to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). Starting in 2024, they’re adding tests on thinking skills and language for students. The Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, shared this news during a virtual meeting with education leaders from all over Nigeria.
Changing How Direct Entry is Evaluated
JAMB is now using aptitude tests to look at a person’s overall abilities, not just what they know in specific subjects. These tests check how quick and smart someone is, along with their general capabilities, going beyond the usual subject-focused exams.
Who Can Register and What’s Needed
Starting in 2024, if you want to register for Direct Entry, you can only do it at JAMB offices. This helps keep things organized and consistent. Be ready to share all your academic details, like your grades and other important information, Like:
