Do I need to write jamb before upgrading the to direct entry?
Please kindly check your mail. Thank you
Your JAMB registration number is valid the issue is with your proposed school portal, not JAMB.
The most possible cause of the invalid jamb registration number is;
1. Making the school a second choice instead of a first choice.
2. Recent changes in course/institution, can cause a delay.
3. Make a mistake with your jamb registration number.
Lastly, the Jamb registration number can never be invalid or wrongly given to you by Jamb.
Please continue checking from time to time from the school’s portal.
I just did. Thank you
I’ve reduced the writing sentence and image size it’s still the same thing.
Send your Jamb details to [email protected] let’s take a quick look at your issue critically
Yeah the same link you just sent. I keep getting this error message “413 request entity too large” after making my complain.
413 Request Entity Too Large… It is an HTTP error code, that occurs because the size of a request exceeds the server’s file size limit.
This is an error from the jamb portal, reduce your writing or sentence length too and try sending it again.
I already did, they asked me to lay my complain to jamb support but I keep getting an error message while trying to contact the jamb support.
The official jamb support link is https://support.jamb.gov.ng/candidate-support/create-general-ticket.
If I get correctly, an official at the jamb office told you to contact support online.
I did conversion from UTME to DE but the new registration number issued to me keeps saying invalid when I try to register for my school of choice post utme
That is an unusual situation please report to the nearest JAMB CBT centre for further assistance.
I have already bought unilorin post utme form via utme and I have converted my utme to de on jamb portal will it still reflect
Yes, it will reflect but take little time.
Should I do changing of institution before upgrading to Direct Entry Or change it while doing the upgrading?
You can do both at the same time, keep in mind that a change of institution requires money.
Good day, after upgrading to DE, is it still possible to convert back to utme?
No, you can’t, once you convert from UTME to DE, you just agreed to cancel your UTME admission and focus on DE only. I’m sorry.
Can I use awaiting ND result to upgrade my jamb to DE.
No you can’t
I converted my utme to DE but it is not reflect on the jamb portal and school portal almost two weeks and I want to do post utme screening please help me out
Hang in there and give Jamb an additional week, then visit your proposed school ICT centre.
How much is converting utme to de, I stay in Lagos where is the jamb office
The upgrade is free, locate A JAMB office here: https://speedyminds.com/jamb-offices/
I have done the conversion already buh it’s still not reflecting on the jamb portal and school portal I applied for,and the screening for the school I chose will be closing on Friday, do I have to go back to the jamb office?
It usually takes about 2 weeks or more for reflection on the portal from the time of conversion, Going to the Jamb office wouldn’t make it better.
But my school screening is going to close this Friday and it’s next week Tuesday the conversion is going to complete two weeks
Go to your proposed School ICT centre and plop your complaints to them, Once jamb updates her portal it will be left for your school to also make modifications.

Yes, The school you applied to there post UTME.
Can I convert jamb to DE after online screening and physical screening 2022
If the school’s post-DE or post-UTME has not passed or closed then you can convert, please visit the nearest CBT centre for assistance.
After upgrading your new jamb score to DE, will your new JAMB score reflect on your DE form?
No it wont, Direct entry forms don’t usually carry jamb score, the data is just your jamb registration number, matric number, school of choice etc
Sir I’ve been going to jamb office since June but they keep on saying they haven’t started conversion from jamb to direct entry. I base at enugu state.

Can I change without my ND result
You need the result during the changes
In the process of upgrading can I choose a new institution and change of course?
Yes after upgrading, you can make changes but it will cost you N2500 to change course or institution.
Head over to jamb office and ask the official perhaps the price might have changed.
