Bad Market For JUPEB, Other Direct Entry Candidates, As JAMB Introduces ‘Hard’ Exam from 2024

The Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB has disclosed that candidates for its Direct Entry examination would be required to take part in cognitive and verbal reasoning tests as from 2024. 

This was affirmed by the Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, during a virtual meeting with Commissioners of Education of the 36 States of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory.

Also in a bulletin made available by the Board, Oloyede stated that as from 2024, JAMB will conduct Aptitude Test for all Direct Entry candidates to assess their academic potential or career suitability, as well as their mental or physical capacity.

The JAMB boss noted that “It is an intelligent test that will measure the candidate’s current cognitive skills and will not be the usual subjects such as Mathematics, Chemistry, Government, Physics, etc.”

The Registrar explained that the aptitude test would comprise the following, Verbal, Abstract, Mechanical and Numeric Reasoning, Data Checking, and Work Sampling. The Registrar also informed the participants, “that the Direct Entry registration will be restricted to only JAMB Offices nationwide.”

He stated that at the point of registration, all DE candidates must provide the following information; Registration/Matriculation Number of the previous school attended where the qualification was obtained; Subjects) of qualification; Awarding Institution; Institution attended; and Year of graduation as well as admission letters where necessary.

Direct Entry (DE) Candidates are candidates who have completed their JUPEB, National Diploma, NCE, IJMB, 1st Degree, etc, and want to enter Nigerian Universities from 200l.

Hitherto, DE candidates don’t need to write any exam after registering for direct entry. But this has changed now!
