JAMB To Release 2017/2018 Admission Modalities On August 21

JAMB Policy Meeting: Board To Release 2017/2018 Admission Modalities On August 21.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the policy committee meeting of the Nigerian education sector will take place from Monday, 21st to Tuesday, 22nd August.

The Nigerian Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, who made the announcement on Sunday in Abuja, said that he had given the Board approval to hold the policy committee meeting to determine cut off points for admission into various courses in Nigerian tertiary institutions for 2017.

He said the meeting will kick-start the 2017 admission exercise.

“All stakeholders including vice-chancellors of universities, rectors of polytechnics and monotechnics and provosts of colleges of education would be in attendance,” he said in a statement.

JAMB disclosed that it has sent to all institutions a soft copy of printout of candidates who chose them.

“This year, the Board has sent candidates who scored 100 and above in their JAMB to the institutions in its flexible admission policy for institutions to determine the suitability of the candidates in compliance with all laid down rules and regulations as determined by the proprietors of the institutions and approved by Senate of the various schools.

“The Board will ensure that criteria set by Senate are strictly adhered to by the institutions’ admission officers and no shifting of goal posts in the middle of the admission exercise.

“This is to guarantee fairness and equity to all candidates.”

It would be recalled that in 1988, the Federal Executive Council amended decree No. 2 of 1978 to empower JAMB to conduct matriculation examinations for entry into all polytechnics and colleges of education in the country and to place suitably qualified candidates in the available places in these institutions.

The amendments have since been codified into decree No. 33 of 1989, which took from 7th December, 1989.

On assumption of office, the present administration set up a panel headed by Dr. Bala Usman to restructure the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board. The Panel has since submitted its report and its recommendations are gradually being implemented by the Federal Ministry of Education.
