This was the subject of discussion during the visit by the JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, to the Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, at the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters.

The unification is coming after a complaint lodged by the Scheme to the Exam Body on the abuse of regularisation of admission by corps members producing institutions, thereby making the mobilisation of prospective ones difficult.

A letter sent by NYSC to the universities admission body read:

“JAMB should revise the window of post-graduation regularisation by introducing measures that will make it impossible for institutions to abuse the regularisation of admissions process.”

With this, it is now mandatory for all graduates to be cleared by JAMB before they are deemed to have qualified for mobilization by the NYSC.
