In a bid to stop candidates from using forged A-level certificates/qualifications to gain admission into the university, the Joint Admission And Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed it’s intention to stop students from no fewer than 155 higher institutions from gaining admission into the university.

In a publication by Sunday Punch, JAMB released an advisory to serve as a guide for candidates who intends to process admissions through Direct Entry in the 2023/2024 academic session.

JAMB addressed a memo to the concerned institutions like; Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo; College of Health Technology, Plateau; College of Education, Lafiagi, Kwara state; College of Education, Oju, Benue state et-al, but only few responded, while others neglected the memo.


The memo reads;

“As you are aware, the Board had introduced measures to help address the discovered unenvisaged tricks and sharp practices by candidates who intended to use unacceptable or forged A’ level certificates/qualifications to gain admission. One of the measures was the verification of the claimed qualifications with the awarding bodies/institutions.


“Institutions awarding A’ Level qualifications, degrees, and diplomas had been requested, through the central admissions processing system to verify the authenticity of the qualifications and results presented by candidates to the board for admission. It reads.

JAMB further advised candidates to contact their initial institutions as soon as possible to have their certificates verified, emphasizing that it would not accept students with unverified certificates.
