The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has revealed that it uncovered 1,665 fake A’level results during the 2023 Direct Entry registration, pointing to corruption within the A’level results verification process.

Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the Registrar, made this revelation during a meeting with the National Association of Nigeria Colleges of Education Students in Abuja.

Oloyede emphasized the importance of safeguarding the integrity of A’level certificates to maintain their value. He highlighted a past practice where institutions were solely responsible for screening DE applicants, citing a shocking discovery at Bayero University, Kano.

To combat the fraud, stakeholders proposed forming an A’level result verification task force and a common verification platform, ensuring a swift five-minute verification process.

JAMB introduced a "No verification, No admission" policy and listed 15 institutions with inadequate verification compliance. Affected institutions must pre-verify candidates before completing their DE registration. While candidates can register, schools must verify them afterward.

NANCES President, Eegunjobi Samuel, lauded JAMB's efforts in restoring credibility and sought additional DE registration centers.
