FG Clarifies Ban On Post- UTME, See Admission Procedure

The Federal Government on Saturday clarified its ban on
Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and the
general admission procedures, saying it “does not in any
way affect the statutory role of the Senate of any University
or the academic boards of any tertiary institution conducting
its admissions.”

The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, stated
this in a statement by the Deputy Director (Press and Public
Relations) in the Ministry of Education, Mr. Ben Bem-Goong.
He said the clarification became necessary “following
conflicting reports in the media over the roles of universities
and the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board in
admission under the new dispensation.”

According to him, the role of JAMB is to conduct the UTME,
compile the list of candidates whose scores meet the cut-off
marks (180 and above) and send same to the Universities.
The Universities, he emphasised, will shortlist the
candidates using the agreed guidelines and thereafter return
the shortlisted candidates to JAMB for verification of
compliance to guidelines and subsequent issuance of JAMB
admission letters.

“For the avoidance of doubt, any screening charges shall
apply only to successful candidates who have been issued
admission by the universities of their choice. All Universities
and JAMB should adhere to this directive”, Adamu stated.
