The Joint Admissions and Matriculation board [Jamb] has recently scrapped National Business and Technical Examinations board [NABTEB] A/LEVEL result from being part of JAMB Direct Entry [DE] requirements in Nigeria.
Based on some government relevant policies for A/level programs, NABTEB is not supposed to be part of the requirements for advanced level examination body. That is the reason why JAMB rejects NABTEB from been part of DIRECT ENTRY Requirements.
JAMB BOARD has issued a statement which is be signed by Mr. Mohammed Babaji Ahmed which they also made it available to vice-chancellors and Heads of tertiary institutions in Nigeria that JAMB will no longer process any admission of candidates with NABTEB A/LEVEL Result/Certificate.
The statement reads as: “it has come to the notice of the board that some institutions are accepting NABTEB A/L GCE as a qualification for Direct entry [DE] admissions.”
The statement when further, “JAMB is aware that NABTEB is not authorized to offer GCE and is, therefore, compelled to take appropriate action”.
They later warn that “Any A/LEVEL GCE certificate issued by NABTEB is, therefore, not registrable with JAMB and the Board would not process the admission of any candidate with such result,’
It is advisable for candidates with NABTEB A/LEVEL certificate holder to stay away from JAMB or better still find other Jamb Direct Entry alternatives in order to be on the safe part.
