JAMB Gives 200,000 Candidates Varsity Admission – Announces Deadline For Acceptance

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has disclosed that no less than 200,000 candidates have been offered admission by the board, for the 2018/2019 academic session.

The disclosure was made by the Head, Media and Information of the JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Sunday in Lagos.

He further revealed that candidates are to accept or reject all offers not later than October 16 as that is when all offers of admissions of first choice will close.

According to him, the admission took effect after the board’s policy meeting in June in Gbongan, Osun state.

He further said that the exercise is done through the Central Admission Process (CAP), an automated process to eliminate all human interference.

“We have so far offered not less than 200,000 first choice admissions to candidates.

“To this effect therefore, we are urging candidates to go to our site and check their admission status and those who have been offered such admission should quickly indicate by accepting and printing such offer, as failure to do so will automatically mean the candidate is no longer interested.

“And therefore, the board may see all such offers as rejected and would have no option than to mop them up and give it to other interested candidates.

“Candidates are to accept or reject all offers not later than Oct.16 as that is when all offers of admissions of first choice will close.

“After that, we will commence admission exercise for the second choice of candidates,” Benjamin said.

He added that the admission process has been made easy as it is clear on the board’s official website, all what the candidates need to know about their admission status and process.

Bear in mind that over 1.6 million candidates wrote JAMB-organised 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
