The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said on Tuesday it uncovered at least 1,665 fake A-level results during the 2023 Direct Entry registration exercise.

The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this when he received the leadership of the National Association of Nigeria Colleges of Education Students (NANCES) in his office.

He said the system’s endemic corruption led to the A-level result verification regime.

According to him, out of this figure, 397 were from colleges of education, 453 were university diplomas, and the rest were other A-level certificates.

The registrar emphasized the need for long-lasting methods to safeguard the integrity of A’-level certificates, which are necessary to guarantee admission, as it would be quite worrisome if no one respected the certificate they were holding.

He recalled that in the past, when a candidate applied for direct entry, the board would simply ask awarding institutions to do the necessary screening and due diligence.

Oloyede said JAMB was dumbfounded by the startling revelations from Bayero University, Kano, that out of the 148 direct entry applications to the institution, only six of the certificates forwarded for processing were genuine.

According to him, it was the discovery of this monumental fraud that prompted the meeting of critical stakeholders, who met to chart ways of combating the menace.

Oloyede also disclosed that, to underscore the importance attached to the exercise, the board has put in place a “No verification, no admission” policy.

While listing 15 institutions that have not sufficiently complied with verification requests from the board, the JAMB Registrar said the affected institutions, with more than 20 unverified candidates, would have to pre-verify candidates applying with their certificates before they could complete their direct entry registration process.
