JAMB Warns Varsities Against Irregular Admissions



The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said it had cautioned some universities offering admissions to candidates on their school portals , without following the guidelines on the Central Admission Processing System ...

The board stated this in a presentation by its Registrar , Prof . Is-haq Oloyede, in Abuja , obtained by our correspondent . It listed the University of Nigeria , Nsukka ; the University of Ibadan ; and the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic , Ogun State as examples .

The board warned the universities to β€œ desist from such illegitimate actions. ”
JAMB said it would not regularise the admission of such candidates not admitted through CAPS .

The registrar said , β€œ On the warehousing of candidates into school portal , JAMB has found out that some institutions have devised a method of offering admissions to candidates outside CAPS , on their own designated portals . The device is a ploy to lure innocent and more qualified candidates away from their preferred programmes .


β€œ These are tricks meant to usurp the rights of the candidates and they are improper and should be disregarded by the candidates . Such institutions are putting into jeopardy the future of these candidates .

β€œ We have the University of Nigeria , Nsukka , which has a quota of 200 for Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. After admitting 106 candidates on CAPS , it released 448 on the UNN portal , whereas there are 342 qualified and not admitted on the CAPS . ”

It added, β€œ Also for Law, it has a quota of 250 and admitted 125 candidates on CAPS , whereas it released another 240 names on the school portal .

β€œ We also have the case of one Hannat at the University of Ibadan , who applied for Human Nutrition but was transferred to Agricultural Extension . Her Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination score was 242 and the post UTME was 72. She had an aggregate score of 66 . 25, but the university then admitted people below her .
β€œ We like to inform candidates that anyone who accepts any offer of admission made outside CAPS , that is , not on the JAMB ’ s candidates ’ profile , does so at their own risk . There shall be no regularisation of any irregular admission . JAMB has given caution to the universities to immediately withdraw and desist from such illegitimate actions. ”
