JAMB recommends 1.6m candidates for admission into various tertiary institutions

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has recommended 1.6m candidates for admission into various tertiary institutions for the 2017/2018 admission year.

The board's head of media, Fabian Benjamin, who disclosed this during an interview with Leadership on Friday, January 26, said of that amount, only 500,000 have accepted their admission as at the time of filling this report.

The JAMB spokesperson said that admission numbers this year was far beyond numbers recorded for other years.

He however stated that candidates were to accept their admission before the admission is said to be complete.

"We have over 500,000 accepted admission already. By the time the 1.1 candidates accept, we are now looking at 1.6 admission. So until the 1.1 candidates accept, by the time they accept, with the 500,000 that have accepted, we will have about 1.6 million accepted," he said.

He explained that in CAPS, institution forwards recommended list to JAMB desk officer, the desk officer processes recommended list and generates list of provisional admissions, JAMB contacts candidates to accept or decline admission. If candidate accepts, admission is concluded for candidate.

Meanwhile, the Plateau state coordinator of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Paul Darius, has advised candidates registering for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to do so at approved CBT centres.

Darius told NAN on Tuesday, January 23, in Jos that the advice was necessitated by the experience of many candidates who had fallen victims of fraudsters.
