The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has ease registration for direct entry candidates. The board disclosed that applicants can now “upgrade” their UTME forms to that of Direct Entry instead of purchasing the two forms if they equally have the qualifications for Direct Entry Admission into any of the universities.
UTME form upgrade to direct entry form
JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin said that candidates that applied through UTME and later obtained DE (Direct Entry) qualification or wish to use their Direct Entry qualifications for admission can upgrade their UTME to DE at no extra cost.
”Once the candidate registers for UTME and discovers he has direct entry qualification, he or she is free to just upgrade to direct entry,”
What this entails; if you have qualification for DE Admission and wish to use it to apply for admission after you may have purchased the UTME Form, all you need to do is just to visit any of accredited JAMB centre or JAMB offices and upgrade the UTME to Direct Entry instead of purchasing a separate Direct Entry form.
JAMB also warned that a phone number can only be used to register one candidate.
