During the 2023 Direct Entry (DE) registration exercise, a staggering 1,665 fake A’level results were uncovered, announced the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this during a meeting with the National Association of Nigeria Colleges of Education Students (NANCES) at the JAMB office in Bwari, Abuja.


Oloyede emphasized that the verification of A’level results was essential due to rampant corruption in the admission system, aiming to restore integrity to the process.

Out of the flagged results, 397 were from Colleges of Education, 453 were University diplomas, and the remainder comprised various other A’level certificates.

Expressing concern, Oloyede highlighted the need to protect the credibility of A’level certificates, which are vital for securing admission.

Previously, JAMB relied on awarding institutions to conduct screenings, but shocking revelations, such as at Bayero University, Kano (BUK), where only six out of 148 certificates were genuine, prompted a re-evaluation of the process.

To combat the fraud, stakeholders convened to establish an A’level result verification task force and a unified platform for verifying A’level results and certificates.

JAMB implemented a strict “no verification, no admission” policy to underscore the significance of the exercise.

Fifteen institutions were singled out for insufficient compliance with verification requests, with those having over 20 unverified candidates required to pre-verify applicants before completing the DE registration process.
