ALERT: Admission ‘will only’ be approved by JAMB





The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says the lists recently forwarded to tertiary institutions were for candidates that qualified for screening based on the capacity of the respective institutions.
Dibu Ojerinde, a professor and registrar of the board, said this in a statement issued on Sunday.
While emphasising that the lists “are in no way the admission lists”, the JAMB registrar noted that if the number of candidates on such lists was not sufficient for existing vacancies, the institutions could 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,” he said.
“The list which is made up of candidates who met the national cut-off point within the set criteria is then forwarded to the institutions.”
JAMB recently announced that the point system copied from its website as criteria for admission into tertiary institutions and currently in circulation was a mere “illustration”.
The examination body had said the admission of candidates into tertiary institutions will be based purely on three pillars – merit, catchment and educationally less developed states
