JAMB STOPS ‘REGULARIZATION FOR CANDIDATES:
The advisory states that all applications for admissions to first degree, ND, HND, NCE including full time, part-time, distance learning, outreach, sandwich, among others must be processed ONLY through JAMB. Thus candidate must have the institution they wish to apply on there Jamb Portal.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it would no longer condone any illegal or irregular admission conducted by any tertiary institution, warning candidates to desist from accepting admissions offered by the institutions without going through the JAMB’s Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).
The examination body gave the warning in an advisory issued to the heads of the various tertiary institutions, which was also published in its weekly bulletin.
This was a follow-up to an earlier threat of sanctions issued by the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, over what was described as the recalcitrance of some heads of institutions who allegedly continued to flout the ministerial directive on the subject.
JAMB’s LATEST ADVISORY:
JAMB’s advisory as captured in the bulletin reads in part; “The advisory further made it clear that the new hardline position taken by the Board was informed by the quantum of applications received for candidates for condonement of illegal admissions popularly known by candidates as ‘ #Regularisation’ adding that such ignoble acts would no longer be tolerated by the Board.
“The advisory further reiterated that all applications for admissions to First Degree, National Diploma, National Innovation Diploma and the Nigeria Certificate in Education into Full-Time, Distance Learning, Part-Time, Outreach, Sandwich, etc., must be processed ONLY through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).”
JAMB said institutions that may still be involved “in advertising or selling “application forms” for admissions into the programmes listed above were advised to desist forthwith, without student’s application for the institute.”
The advisory, therefore, urges the concerned institutions to encourage their candidates to apply to their programmes through the examination body, noting that duplication of application forms is also not allowed.
“On the other hand, candidates are to ensure that any admission issued to them by any institution is routed through the Board even before considering accepting such offers,” JAMB said.
NOTE: Candidates must therefore have the institution/course they wish to apply on Jamb portal, before applying for the Post UTMe or Screening Form, for there selected institute; as JAMB lift banned for REGULARIZATION.
-Jamb will no longer Consider REGULARIZATION, during NYSC, thus you must have the University/Polytechnic or Monetechnic on your Jamb Portal Profile, before applying for the territory institution; in other to have any further access to the board’s activities.
