The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), says all admissions into the nation’s tertiary institutions for 2020/2021 academic session would end by June 15, 2021. The decision was collectively taken at a virtual meeting held with heads of tertiary institutions in the country.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said the meeting with the institutions was aimed at knowing the level they have reached on the 2020/21 admissions scale. Oloyede said the chosen deadlines remain sacrosanct and binding on all institutions as the board would not tolerate any breach of the collective decision reached at the meeting.
The registrar urged all institutions to adhere strictly to all advisories issued to them on inter/intra-university transfers, foreign inter-university transfers and fresh foreign candidates, change of programmes and institutions and other essential processes related to admission.
He said the directive was necessary to avoid unnecessary bickering that could endanger the future of innocent candidates and their subsequent mobilisation for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
