JAMB's latest advisory

The examination body warned candidates to desist from accepting admissions offered by the institutions without going through it.

In the statement titled, ‘Cessation of illegal/irregular admission', JAMB reiterated that all applications of admissions to first degree, national diploma (ND), national innovation diploma and the Nigeria certificate in education into full-time, distance learning, part-time, outreach, sandwich, etc, must be processed only through JAMB.

JAMB said:

“No Institution should advertise or sell ‘application forms' for admissions into the programmes.

“Institutions that desire to place advertisement can do so with the requirement that candidates who sat for the current UTME (or DE candidates) should change to their institutions as first choice rather than requesting the candidates to purchase another application form or apply. This is to prevent the issue of double registration which is a violation of the mandate of JAMB.”
