JAMB sends can­di­dates’ lists to var­si­ties

Daily Trust - - FRONT PAGE - By Mis­bahu Bashir

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.
