Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has begun the sale of *Direct Entry Forms*.
The board also said that students who went through the Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board(JUPEB) programme in various universities in the country are expected to obtain the DE form in order to gain admission into 200 level.
According to Mr *Fabian Benjamin*, the head of information, JAMB stated that the board has not commenced the sale of change of course or institution form, warned candidates not to pay N5,000 to any individual account.
â€œThe process is as it was with the UTME where you create a profile and obtain the pins and proceed for biometric capturing at the CBT centres for Direct Entry candidates. We urge all candidates wishing to register through DE to obtain the pins at Interswitch, Remita or any of the commercial banks approved earlier for the vending of UTME pins.â€
â€œThe board also wishes to state that it has not commenced the change of course and institutions. We will soon begin and when we do start, the changes will be done in all approved CBT centres nationwide. Candidates need not necessarily come to the boardâ€™s centres. It can be done in any of the CBT centres. This is to avoid overcrowding of our offices for services that can be obtained at the utmost comfort by the candidatesâ€. Mr Fabian explained.
â€œThe delay has been occasioned by our preparation to ensure that the system is smooth and without encumbrances. The public is urged to note that every candidate desirous of a change of course or institution will be allowed to do so as the platform will be open until the close of admission. In view of this, candidates are not to patronise any fraudulent individuals or organisations but to visit approved CBT centres and never to hesitate to cross check any information they are not clear about,â€ he added.
