University Admission Will Now ‘Only’ Be Approved By JAMB



The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has given condition for the 2016 admissions, saying it will only give approval after appropriate screening of the candidates by the institutions.

In a statement issued on Sunday by Dibu Ojerinde, a professor and registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the board has said that the lists recently forwarded to tertiary institutions were for candidates that qualified for screening based on the capacity of the respective institutions.

Ojerinde said:-

“The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board wishes to state that the latest list of candidates sent to all the tertiary institutions contains candidates who qualified for screening based on the individual institution’s capacity. It’s not in any way an admission list.

“However, if this list is not sufficient for the need of any institution, such institution can source from the omnibus printout earlier sent to them by the board. The public and all tertiary institutions should note that admission will only be approved by the board after appropriate screening of the candidates by the institutions.

“The list, which is made up of candidates, who met the national cut-off point within the set criteria, is sent to the institutions. Again, for purposes of clarity, all institutions that have need for more can source from their omnibus printout as stated above. The candid intention of the board is to ensure that available spaces are adequately utilised,” he said.

The Federal Government had on Saturday, clarified its ban on Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and the general admission procedure.

It said it “does not in any way affect the statutory role of the Senate of any university or the academic board of any tertiary institution conducting its admissions.”

The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, also made the clarification in a statement by the Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations in the Ministry of Education, Ben. Bem-Goong.

He said the clarification became necessary “following conflicting reports in the media over the roles of universities and JAMB in admission under the new dispensation.”

According to him, the role of JAMB is to conduct the UTME, compile the list of candidates whose scores meet the cut-off marks (180 and above) and send same to the universities.
