There are lots of confusion throughout last week concerning the sudden release of posting list of applicants by Jamb to their various institutions. Few applicants saw their names, and so many could not. This really caused a lot of issues around.
In order to address this issue, The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has stated that the recent list of candidates sent to tertiary institutions contains just the names of candidates who met the national cut-off point within the set
criteria and hence qualified for screening in their respective institutions based on the institution’s capacity and it’s not in any way an admission list. Prof. Ojerinde, Jamb registrar disclosed this on Sunday.
He further said that the admission is to be determined by various institutions after the screening must have been conducted.
Also in an earlier statement on Saturday credite to Mr. Ben. Bem-Goong, the Deputy Director ofPress and Public Relations in the Ministry of Education. It was stated that 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 institutions, will now shortlist the candidates, using the agreed guidelines and thereafter return the shortlisted candidates to JAMB for verification of compliance with the guidelines and issuance of JAMB admission letters.
Therefore, if you are not posted by Jamb, you don’t need to further disturb yourself more about this. Also, for those that have been posted, this does not in anyway guarantee automatic admission.
