Firstly let’s consider some of the requirements for Direct Entry students, having seen the general requirements for all candidates.


Candidates with any of the following qualifications may be considered for admission through Direct Entry:

  • A minimum of O’level credit pass in five (5) SSSC subjects at not more two sittings with at least two prescribed subjects for each program (course of study) at Principal or Advanced level;
  • Two passes [in a prescribed subject for each (program) course of study] at the A’level Examination awarded by IJMB, Cambridge, JUPEB, or institution of baccalaureate with other 3 credits pass in the SSSC.
  • Credit passes in two major subjects in the NCE with 3 other credit passes in SSSC, NTC/NBC (mainly for Education/Technical programs)
  • Minimum credit grade in university/ national Diploma or National Innovation Diploma with the appropriate O’level requirements.


  • DE candidates will be required to provide their JAMB registration numbers with which they gained admission to NCE/NID/Diploma and previous degree programs;
  • Registration for DE Candidates shall not be extended beyond the period allotted to both UTME/DE.

Furthermore, candidates must note the following warnings on some specific situations. It is noteworthy to note this in other to avoid defaulting.

According to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the following information are very important and must not be neglected:

  1. Candidates should not apply for UTME and DE at the same time. If any candidate applies through UTME and later obtains a Higher qualification, the UTME can be upgraded to DE at no cost. Indeed, it is a sanctionable infraction to obtain two application documents in the same year. Double/multiple registrations attract outright cancellation and prosecution.
  2. Candidates are not permitted to register more than once. In the event of any error during the registration process, such candidates are to seek correction from the Board. They are not to obtain a fresh application as doing so would attract sanctions;
  3. Registration can only be done at the centers listed on the board’s website and pasted at JAMB offices across the country. Anybody who registers outside these centers does so at his/her risk;
  4. Non-Candidates including parents/guardians or any proxy are NOT allowed to transact any business on any candidate’s profile. The registration process and all activities on candidates’ profiles are being monitored by the board. Defaulters shall be severely sanctioned. Any candidate who makes his password, profile code, or other security codes available to another person (parents, friends, tutorial teachers, fraudsters, etc) is liable for any alteration done by such person(s). Do not give your password to anybody including JAMB Officials. These security codes are not to be demanded at any registration center by any person for any purpose

Every Candidate should note that their first choice can be a college of Education, University, Innovative Enterprise Institution, Polytechnic/Monotechnic, Nigeria Defence Academy, or Police Academy. Having looked at the JAMB registration requirements for 2022 and the order of institution for all candidates, let’s consider the schedule for the exams this year 2022.

Finally, all candidates looking forward to registering for the 2022 JAMB UTME examination should take note of the following dates. The dates are for the registration, mock examination, and the main examination:

  • Registration starts 19th February 2022 and ends 26th March 2022;
  • Mock Examination: 26th April 2022; and
