JAMB sends candidates’ lists to varsities
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board yesterday said names of candidates who qualified for 2016 admission screening exercise had been released to universities and other tertiary institutions based on individual institutions’ capacity.
The Registrar, Professor Jibu Ojerinde, said in a statement that the lists were made up of candidates who met the national cut-off point within the set criteria. He said this was ‘not in any way an admission list’, adding that lists could only be endorsed by the board after screening.
“The public and all tertiary institutions should note that admission will only be approved by the board after appropriate screening of the candidates by the institutions,” he said.
Ojerinde said if the names were not sufficient for the need of any institution, such institution could source candidates from the ‘omnibus printout’ earlier sent to them by the board.
He said the intention of the board was to ensure that available spaces in the institutions were adequately utilized.
