The Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB, Sunday released guidelines for 2016 admissions into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

This was made known in statement signed by ‎Head of Information, JAMB‎, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, in Abuja. Benjamin said 2016 admissions will be conducted purely on the three existing admission pillars of merit, catchment area and educational less developed states.

The statement reads: “Sequel to the recent workshop convened by the Honourable Minister of Education on the modality for the 2016 admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria following the cancellation of Post UTME.

“The federal government approved the re enforcement of admission guideline recognise by law. This is not the point system widely circulated in some media. For the avoidance of doubt, the Board wishes to state clearly that the point system is an illustration by the Registrar of JAMB of a few institution that were using the point system to select candidates while their colleagues were subjecting candidates to written test.

 “These examples are contain in a paper presented by the Registrar which is placed on our website and was adopted by the media wrongly as the 2016 guideline”. He continued, “Please note that the 2016 admissions will be conducted purely on the three existing admission pillars of merit, catchment area and educational less developed states through the following process. “First, presentation of the list of candidates who qualify for screening into individual institution based on the three stipulated criteria mentioned above.

This screening should not demand for another test in any form either written, oral or electronic. “Candidates are to present their Senior School Certificate Examination ( SSCE) results/Advanced Level (AL) results for verification and clearing purposes. WAEC, NECO and NBTE results or equivalent are acceptable as matriculation requirements. “Each candidate is expected to have a minimum of five (5) credits at SSCE including English, mathematics and any other three (3) relevant subjects to his or her discipline

“The list of qualified candidates awaiting SSCE/AL results can be kept in view (K.I.V) pending the release of their results. Any candidate who does not posses the requirements as listed above is deemed to have failed the screening”. JAMB stressed, “Consideration of the recommended list as forward by JAMB should be completed within one Month from the date of receipt of the list.

 Any institution that has a shortfall in the admitted candidates can make-up for candidates from other departments on the institutions list. “Reasons for rejection of candidates on the list should be clearly stated with proofs provided alongside. “This is imperative so that the general public will note
