The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Friday said it had concluded arrangements to hold its next technical meeting on admissions at the Bayero University in Kano. The board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, told newsmen in Lagos that it would hold from Aug. 22 to Aug. 26.
Benjamin said that the meeting would receive the lists of candidates who had met the admission criteria from the various tertiary institutions for its ratification. Benjamin said, “ We are expecting a full complement of representatives from all the tertiary institutions in the country to attend the meeting. “They are expected to submit the lists of first choice candidates shortlisted for admission into the respective tertiary institutions, comprising universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.
“ The board and all other stakeholders will collectively go through the lists to see if they had met the admission criteria. “The board, if satisfied, will ratify the lists and admission print-outs will be issued to the institutions.’’
He said that the names of successful candidates would also be uploaded on the website of respective institutions for candidates to print. According to him, the admission letters will contain details such as admission status, school and course of study as well as duration of chosen programme.
