In response to the growing number of applicants, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has decided to extend the registration deadline for the 2024 Direct Entry (DE) until Monday, June 17, 2024.

To cater to the increased demand, JAMB has expanded registration centers beyond the Professional Registration Centers (PRCs) in states with high numbers of candidates. This move comes after numerous appeals from stakeholders and authorities over the past month.

Fabian Benjamin, spokesperson for JAMB, released a statement on Sunday outlining the additional registration centers in affected states. In Lagos State, centers include JAMB PRC on Ojora Road, Ikoyi Lagos, and JAMB PRC on Isheri Road, Ogba, among others. Oyo State offers centers such as JAMB PTC in Agodi G.R.A, Ibadan, and FCE Special CBT Centre in Oyo. For Kwara State, candidates can register at JAMB PTC National Headquarters Annex in Ilorin and the University of Ilorin CBT Centre. Meanwhile, Osun State provides centers like JAMB PTC in Alekuwodo and OSPDC in Osogbo.

JAMB emphasizes that this extension is a one-time opportunity and encourages all eligible candidates to register promptly. There will be no further extensions, and the previously announced criteria for DE registration remain unchanged.

On Kwasu Diploma, the Board stated,” Having held high-stake meetings with the principal officers of the Kwara State College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies (CAILS) and the Kwara State University (KWASU), on the CAILS-KWASU Diploma programme, the Board has agreed to conduct a special registration exercise for the 3,633 prospective candidates, who did not participate in the 2024 UTME based on the assumption that they would be accommodated in the 2024 DE exercise.

“These candidates are, therefore, to register at any of the approved CBT centres in Kwara, Oyo or Osun State within the next one week (ending on Monday, 10th June 2024) to register for the UTME.

“469 others among this category of UTME candidates who had already taken the 2024 UTME need not retake the examination. The one they have already taken suffices”

This concession is to ensure that, while standards are being maintained, efforts are in place to support and promote the aspirations of qualified and willing candidates even if it requires bending over backwards.

The Board also announced that a supplementary 2024 UTME has been scheduled for Saturday, 22nd June 2024 for the following candidates: CAILS-KWASU candidates referred to above; some (20,550) of the candidates whose results are up till now under investigation; 2,702 candidates whose fingers could not be verified who are given the benefit of doubts to sit the 2024 UTME.

JAMB added, “The remaining 322 candidates have been migrated to the category of candidates under examination misconduct as a prima-facie case has been established that those who had registered were not those who appeared for the examination. Consequently, the number of examination misconduct has increased by 322 to 43.”
