The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has directed all tertiary institutions in Nigeria to begin the conduct of the first and second choice admission from August 21.
The board Spokesperson, Dr Benjamin Fabian, disclosed this as part of the 2020 admission guidelines which was issued by the board in Abuja. In the release, the board warned institutions to desist from duplicating forms or selling forms for admissions into some listed programs.
JAMB directed all institutions to advise candidates to apply for the programs through its office, saying that all admission exercises must be conducted on the Central Admission Processing System.
Dr Fabian said, “All applications for admissions to First Degree, National Diploma, National Innovation Diploma, and the Nigeria Certificate in Education into full-time, distance learning, part-time, outreach, sandwich, etc, must be processed only through JAMB.
“Institutions that desire to place advertisements can do so by advising candidates who applied for the current Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination to change to their institution as the first choice rather than requesting the candidates to purchase another application form or apply. This is to prevent the issue of double registration which is a violation of the JAMB mandate,” he added.
