Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), yesterday, said it will no longer consider National Business and Technical Education Board (NABTEB) A’ level results for direct entry into tertiary institutions.
The Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said: “ The honourable Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has approved that the NABTEB A’Level GCE will no longer be recognised as a qualification for DE (Direct Entry) from 2022. However, all those who have already obtained it prior to this date will be able to use it.”
This is even as he released names of the best students in the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
