JAMB to higher institutions: start 2020/2021 admission processes

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday gave heads of tertiary institutions the green light to begin the 2020/2021 post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) screening on September 7.
The board explained that the shift in the date of admission was meant to allow pupils sitting for the 2020 Ordinary Level examinations conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), National Examination Council (NECO) and National Business and Technical Examination (NBTE) obtain the required qualifications.
JAMB Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, announced this yesterday after a consultative virtual meeting with vice chancellors, Rectors and Provosts of tertiary institutions.
About 1,352,988 candidates, who scored 120 and above in this year’s UTME, are awaiting results.
Oloyede said: “The view of JAMB is that while we go on consulting at a point when it becomes necessary for decision, we should all come together and take a decision. Presently, as you are aware, WAEC starts the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) on August 17, it will go on till September 7.

“Similarly, on September 21 or thereabout, NABTEB will begin its examination that will go on till October 15. Immediately after that, NECO will start on November 5 and will hold till November 18.
“Rather than making candidates run, particularly when they will have to write their school certificate examinations in different towns and rush to university elsewhere for post-UTME, like somebody rushing from Sokoto to Ibadan for post-UTME, we believe, as a custodian of the highest sector of the education system, we should avoid that.”
The JAMB Registrar noted that institutions whose post-UTME screening is mandatory for candidates would have to spread such exercise in two phases.
“For those (institutions) that want to take post-UTME, that cannot be earlier than September 7, and it will be held twice – September 7 to October 4. And then, it will be held for the second time on November 18 to mop up those who are taking their school certificate examinations,” he said.
