Why did JAMB Extend the Direct Entry Registration?

JAMB explained that the extension was to allow holders of Cambridge A/Level certificates, who have not registered to do so within the time frame.

He stated further: “It should be noted that in its bid to ensure that the Cambridge A/L Certificate is on boarded in the verification process, the British Council is partnering with the Board and, as such, would be providing a verification portal for the seamless verification of its Cambridge Certificates as obtains with other categories of A/Level certificates. It is this provision of a verification portal by the Council that informs the Board’s decision to reconsider its earlier stand on non-inclusion of Cambridge certificate for DE registration.”
