2023 direct entry

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have announced the cancellation of registration of 817 candidates expected to sit for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations and Direct Entry (UTME) examination. The decision was made by the examination due to some disparities in identities of candidate that was discovered.


. The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has taken stern action over the breach of its rules.

. JAMB registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede in a statement made available to the press on Wednesday, February 8 revealed that the examination body has cancelled the registration of 817 candidates.

. He also revealed that some registration officers in the affected 178 Computer-Based Test centres added their fingerprints to complete the registration process for the candidates.

. He revealed that the reason for the decision was due to the examination body detecting issues of impersonation.

JAMB REGISTRAR, PROF ISHAQ OLOYEDE said: “For the students who allowed other people to add their fingers to their registration procedure, we found that some of them were only naive, because you will hear them saying my finger was hot, and the man added his own. And you allowed him to add his own?”

“Some of them did it deliberately for impersonation, but we can’t identify those who are genuine from those who are not genuine. We will cancel all of them, all the registrations, and we will ask them to re-register.”
