JAMB insists on following advice on changing transfers, programs, and institutions
All admissions to the higher institutions in the country for the 2020/2021 academic session end on 15 June 2021.
The decision was taken jointly at a virtual meeting with the leaders of universities in the country on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
In his related remarks, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) Prof. Ishaq Oloyede stated that the meeting with the institution was aimed at determining the level they had achieved in the 2020/21 new student admission scale.
According to him, the essence of the interactive meeting was to prevent an endless system of recording due to a series of disruptions in daily life due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He said the meeting would allow the Board of Directors to put in place the necessary mechanisms for registration under UTME / DE 2021/2022.
Previously, the secretary told the leading scholars gathered that only 30 percent of the institutions had started accepting them in the 2020/2021 academic session.
He said it was necessary to jointly decide when to complete the 2020/2021 admissions exercise. He added that public universities must stop accepting four weeks before private universities, technical colleges, teacher training colleges, and IEI.
After solid and insightful discussion, the members jointly agreed that all public universities are expected to complete their admissions on or before 15 May 2021, while private universities and all IEIs, colleges, and COE will complete their admissions by the agreed date of 15 June 2021 will finish.
Mr. Oloyede reiterated that the selected deadlines remain sacred and binding for all institutions because the Board will not tolerate violations of collective decisions made at the meeting.
He said the board would announce a start date for selling application materials for the 2021/2022 academic session within a week.
Meanwhile, the Council urges all institutions to strictly adhere to any recommendations given to them regarding transfers between universities, transfers between universities and new foreign applicants, changes in programs and institutions, and other major admissions procedures.
Avoiding unnecessary arguments could jeopardize the innocent candidate’s future and their subsequent mobilization for the National Youth Services Corps (NYSC). He added that these tips and procedures should serve as guidelines for dealing with the various problems you face.
The Secretary noted that the transfer of candidates to institutions at the local or international level is an acceptable process approved by the Senate or the board of the relevant institutions, but said that the process should be followed.
He pointed out that the Board of Directors, as the responsible organization and gatekeeper, does not allow the process to be circumvented so that unskilled candidates can gain access to our institutions.
He said, “JAMB will not be involved in erroneous transmissions or policy violations, adding that appropriate action or review must be taken to verify that these applicants meet the minimum requirements or have the necessary qualifications, to be first in the establishment.
