The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has
disclosed that candidates can now "upgrade" their UTME forms
to that of Direct Entry instead of purchasing the two forms if
they equally have the qualifications for Direct Entry Admission
into any of the universities. This was part of the information
contained in the 2019 JAMB UTME/DE Registration guidelines.
Explaining this further, the JAMB's Head of Media, Dr Fabian
Benjamin said that candidates that applied through UTME and
later obtained DE (Direct Entry) qualification or wish to use
their Direct Entry qualifications for admission can upgrade
their UTME to DE at no cost.
”Once the candidate registers for UTME and discovers he has
direct entry qualification, he or she is free to just upgrade to
direct entry,” said Mr Benjamin.
This means that if you have qualification for Direct Entry
Admission and wish to use it to apply for admission after you
may have purchased the UTME Form, all you need to do is just
to visit any of the JAMB accredited centre or JAMB offices
and upgrade the UTME to Direct Entry instead of purchasing a
separate Direct Entry form.
