The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has uncovered 1,665 fake A’level results during the 2023 Direct Entry registration exercise.

The JAMB Registrar,  Prof Is-haq Oloyede, said the A’level results verification regime was characterized by corruption associated with the system.

On Tuesday, he disclosed that measures would be put in place to safeguard the integrity of A’level certificates used to secure admissions.

“It should be of grave concern if no one respects the certificate one is holding.”

The constitution of an A ’level result verification task force, and the creation of a common platform for A’level results verification are some of the measures JAMB is considering.

Prof. Oloyede said JAMB has put a “No verification, No admission" policy in place.

He also listed 15 institutions that are yet to fully comply with the board's verification request.

The affected institutions would have to pre-verify holders of their certificates before they complete their direct entry registration.
