He said: “The Minister of Education has approved that the NABTEB A’ Level GCE will no longer be recognized as a qualification for Direct Entry, DE, from 2022. However, all those who have already obtained it prior to this date, will be able to use it.”
Speaking at the event, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, warned institutions against violating laid-down admission guidelines.
According to him, all institutions must adhere strictly to all admission regulations prescribed by the regulatory bodies such as National Universities Commission, NUC; National Commission for Colleges of Education, NCCE, and national Board for Technical Education, NBTE.
This, he said, must be “, particularly with regards to approved quotas, ratios and other specifications meant for improved quality, accountability and equity.”
