Many students interested in pursuing higher education in Nigeria consider the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) pathways. UTME conversion to DE 2024 allows UTME candidates who meet specific criteria to leverage their UTME 2024 scores for direct entry applications.

This conversion process benefits those who have the necessary qualifications for DE after registering for UTME. For instance, a candidate might have registered for UTME while awaiting their A-Level results, which qualify them for DE. UTME conversion to DE 2024 allows them to use their UTME scores to apply for admission directly into the second year of their chosen program.

However, it’s important to note that the official process for UTME conversion to DE 2024 has not started yet. The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will announce the official commencement date and provide detailed guidelines. Regularly checking the JAMB website, their social media channels, and news platforms like TechCabal will help you stay updated.

In the meantime, acquainting yourself with the specific requirements for your desired institutions for DE conversion is recommended.
