Official Communication and Responses:

The Board officially communicated with all tertiary institutions that issued the certificates in question.

While many institutions responded positively, some have been characterized as lackadaisical in their response to the verification requests.

Official Statement by JAMB:

JAMB’s official statement, released on its official handle, outlined the necessity for A-Level candidates to initiate contact with their former institutions for prompt certificate verification.

The Board expressed its commitment to expediting the verification process and acknowledged the positive responses received from a significant number of institutions.

Admission Process and Implications:

The Board made it explicitly clear that it would not process any DE admission without the completion of the certificate verification process.

Additionally, JAMB highlighted that admissions for the academic year were in the final stages, and non-responsive institutions’ candidates would not be considered.


JAMB’s warning underscores the importance of timely certificate verification for A-Level candidates seeking Direct Entry admissions in 2023.

The announcement serves as a crucial reminder for applicants to take proactive steps in ensuring the verification of their credentials through collaboration with their former institutions.
