JAMB Issues Important Message On 2016 Admission Strategy
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has issued an important message with respect to the strategy for admission in the 2016/2017 session.
According to the Board, the recent lists forwarded to various tertiary institutions were for candidates that qualified for screening based on institutions’ capacity.
Speaking on Sunday in Lagos, the board’s Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, stated that if, however, 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.
“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,’’ it said.
The statement noted that the intention of the board was to ensure that available spaces were adequately utilised.
