JAMB reveals those who will get admission in 2017/2018 session

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)
on Thursday, said only candidates who meet the O’ level
and A’ level requirements and other criteria set by
institutions would be offered admission in 2017/2018.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, stated this at a
Training and Sensitization Forum on Central Admissions
Processing System (CAPS) for admission offers,
candidates and stakeholders on in Abuja.
Prof. Oloyede said: “Scoring higher than the cut-off
mark does not guarantee admission but makes the
candidate eligible for admission consideration. It is not
UTME that qualifies the person. It is O level, A level that
qualifies a person for admission.
“That is why you can go from here to UK, you can go to
Ghana, Uganda, Republic of Benin, nobody ask you of
your UTME, they ask for your O level because by law it
is the school cert that qualifies you not JAMB,” he said.
He also warned that JAMB will not tolerate illegal
admissions by any higher institution.
The body also stated that students admitted illegally
won’t be regularised anymore.
“We know that we have abused the process. What we
have been doing is to send N5,000 each to JAMB in the
name of regularization without capturing their picture,
without capturing anything. You pay N5,000 and then
they are regularized.
“We have not stopped to do backlog but from 2016
upward we will not allow anybody to do backdoor
admission. Anybody that is not properly admitted cannot
benefit from regularization.
“You cannot admit anybody under the table. Let us
know your problem and let us collectively solve the
problem so that you do not need to do such thing.
“We don’t have accurate data because what we have on
record is different from real life. We cannot continue to
do that. We will protest to the whole world that we have
500 students in our institutions but in reality they are
about 1 million but 500,000 thousand have been
admitted illegally,” Oloyede remarked.
