JAMB: Admission Processes For 2017/2018 To Commence On Sept. 15

The Joint Admission and Matriculation
Board (JAMB) has disclosed that the
admission processes for 2017/2018 will
commence on September 15 and close
on January 31, 2018.
Dr Fabian Benjamin, the Head of JAMB Information and
Media, who made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria
(NAN) in Bwari, Abuja, on Friday, also added that the direct
entry applications for admission would close on September 15.
He explained that students could only secure admission after
they might have passed through the rudiments of admission
He said: “We have come up
with Central Admission
Processing System (CAPS)
this year.
“This entails that once
candidates are admitted and
the institution approves, then
JAMB will approve, the
information about the
candidates will be keyed into
CAPS automatically.
“Candidates can monitor
their admission process
through CAPS online and
those who want to get
admission letter can do so by
printing such online.’’
According to him, CAPS will make record gathering easy and
give easy access to students to print their admission letters
among other things.
“What we are trying to do
now is that we are looking at
the perimeter realistically; we
decided to come up with new
strategy aimed at ensuring
the actual data,” he added.
Speaking on the 120 minimum cut-off mark, Benjamin said it
would not in any way affect the nation’s educational standard
negatively as being alleged by some people.
He said that the issue of the 120 cut-off mark was a policy
of heads of tertiary institutions across the country, being the
outcome of their policy meeting recently.
“The cut off mark was not
the decision of JAMB, but the
heads of tertiary institutions
at the policy meeting.
“They decided that their
institutions should be
allowed to determine their
own cut-off point based on
their own peculiarities, but
nobody for whatever reason
should go below 120.”
