JAMB 2021/2023 Direct Entry (D.E) Form: Starting, Closing Date & Exam Date

When is JAMB 2021/2023 Direct Entry (D.E) Form starting, Closing date and Exam Date, Registration closing Date, Screening Dates, Latest form Updates, And Other JAMB D.E News: JAMB direct entry form for the year 2021 Should start selling the same time with JAMB UTME. It is expected to be fully on sale starting as from January 2021.

It is now known that JAMB direct entry form is now being sold alongside JAMB UTME. This implies that both 2021/2023 direct entry and normal Jamb 2021/2023 registration shall be done together. You don’t have to wait for D.E 2021 registration to be announced separately. JAMB direct entry registration is similar to that of JAMB Utme.

Did you know? Thousands of candidates could not register for JAMB 2021 direct entry, not because they didn’t have money to register; but because they were not informed until registration was over. Am sure you wouldn’t want that in your case.

They expected JAMB to announce direct entry form separately (Not knowing that it was already out with UTME). Registration for both exams ended the same day. Sadly, JAMB did not extend the registration deadline even after various forms pleading.

How To Create JAMB Direct Entry Profile 2021/2023 Code

Just use your own phone number when you want to get your JAMB profile.

Just send your surname, first name and middle name to 55019.

Fifty naira (₦50) will be deducted from your credit.

You will receive a message from JAMB, this message will contain your JAMB 2021 profile code.

Please don’t delete that message, also write the JAMB profile code somewhere.

How Can I Correct My Name In JAMB

Sometimes people make the mistake of using misspelt or wrong names to register.

Avoid making this mistake, because it will cost you some money.

You can also correct your name on JAMB portal, but that will be only after exam.

Go to the cbt center that you registered for JAMB, and take at least ₦4,000 along.

How Do I Correct My O Level Result Details

You can correct your o level details after the examination.

It is possible for you to change your o level result details.

In case you made a mistake with your o level result during the registration, then you need to change it.

Changing it to the correct one on JAMB portal will cost you some money (About ₦2,500 – ₦5,000).

If there is a mistake in it and you decided not to change it to the correct one, it will affect your admission into your choice of institution.

That’s why I said before that you need to pay attention to every details you use for the registration.

How Can I Get NIN To Register For D.E 2021, Do I Need it for Direct Entry?

Introducing NIN, NIN means National Identification Number.

In case you don’t know, NIN will be used to register for the JAMB exam in 2021.

There is a very good reason why JAMB decided to use NIN.

In 2020, there were issues related to candidates registering for JAMB more than once.

Jamb have decided to use the National Identification Number for the registration, in order to prevent double registration.

If you want to get your own NIN, go to their nearest office in your state or town.

You will fill out a form and be asked for some necessary documents before you can get it.

How Do I Correct My Gender In JAMB

Correction of gender will also be done after the exam.

You will need to go back to the cbt center where you registered to correct it.

Note that you will need to take money along, it is not free.

This type of mistake is rare, but sometimes people use the wrong gender while registering.

I don’t know why a girl will use male as gender while registering for JAMB.

Yeah, This is all we have to say for now on JAMB 2021/2023 Direct Entry Registration Form, Closing Date, Exam Date And latest JAMB News, this article will always be updated when an update arise even as the form is announced open.
