We have experimentally studied the excited states in 22Mg near and above the proton threshold using the 24Mg(p,t) transfer reaction. The states at 5.714, 5.962, and 6.046 MeV, which are important for nucleosynthesis in novae, were assigned to have Jπ = 2+, (1-), and O+, respectively. The doublets at around 6.3 MeV were, furthermore, resolved and successfully assigned to have Jπ = (6+) and (4+) for the first time.
