The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), on Monday, stated that the National Business and Technical Examinations Board, (NABTEB) advanced level certificate is not acceptable as a requirement for Direct Entry into tertiary institutions.
The examination body noted that the decision was reached following the discovery that relevant government policies on A/Level programmes do not permit NABTEB from conducting Advanced Level examinations.
JAMB in a statement released through its Director of Admissions, Mohammed Ahmed, and forwarded to Vice-Chancellors and other Heads of tertiary institutions in the country, said it would not process the admission of any candidate with NABTEB A/L Certificate.
The statement reads, “It has come to the notice of the Board that some institutions are accepting NABTEB A/L GCE as a qualification for Direct Entry Admissions.
“JAMB is aware that NABTEB is not authorised to offer GCE and is, therefore, compelled to take appropriate action.
“Any A/L GCE Certificate issued by NABTEB is, therefore, not registrable with JAMB and the Board would not process the admission of any candidate with such a result.
“Candidates who wish to enlist for A/Level examinations are to note.”
