The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that it has enabled its portal for institutions to upload names of shortlisted applicants for the 2020/2021 admission. The board emphasized that all admission processes must go through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) for approval.
This was made known by the Registrar of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede during an interview with newsmen in Abuja.
According to him, only qualified candidates as recommended by their institutions for admission will be approved by the board.
He noted that most institutions, particularly private had commenced admission.
The registrar, however, added that public universities were yet to fully kick-start the process partly because they are yet to conclude admissions for last year.
Prof Oloyede said: “Take note also that admission is not just for universities. There are polytechnics and colleges of education and except for the closure because of COVID-19, they are not affected by the strike.
What this means?
Before now no federal institution in Nigeria has commenced admission placements, prior to this update, candidates should expect Schools that utilized CAPS for Admission placements to begin sending names of students recommended for Admission to Jamb.
More details soon.
