JAMB Change of Course/Institution Will Close After 2017/2018 Admission Is Concluded
JAMB Change of Course/Institution Will Close After 2017/2018 Admission Is Concluded
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has disclosed that it will not close that the change of courses and institutions procedures, until 2017/2018 admission is concluded.

This was disclosed by the JAMB’s Head of Public Relations, Fabian Benjamin, during an interview with newsmen.

According to him, it was wrong for any student to observe that the board would close the change of courses and institutions procedure soon and advised candidates to avoid panic, but take time to make decision that is suitable for them, to secure admission into higher institutions.

He further stated that the process is a continuous exercise and which the board does not intend to close now but only after admission has been concluded.

“This is so because there are moments whereby candidates who chose particular institution will not have opportunity there and other one will want to offer them admission.

“If closed it will be difficult to access such offer, all candidates need to do is go back to the portal and make changes to those institutions and access available opportunities.

“We want to avoid situation whereby candidates will have multiple admission and will take one and be denied that opportunity.

“When we do that statistics will be strengthened; if candidates choose University of Lagos and later consider Yaba-Tech the statistic will reflect the second choice.

“So that when we are giving account of admission of candidate, we will be able to provide accurate statistic and not distorted data we have been dishing out before,” he said.

He said that the change is imperative for candidates who made mistakes while choosing courses they want to study or the institution or university they want to apply to.

Benjamin explained that the process of change of courses and institutions could be done with the payment of N2, 500 in JAMB Computer Based Tests (CBT) centres and at other approved centres.

He, therefore, advised candidates who wished to change their choice of course or institution to think properly, before doing so to avoid irregularities.

Benjamin said that the board would hold the policy committee meeting on Aug. 21 and Aug. 22, to determine cut-off points for admissions this year into various courses and tertiary institutions.

He further said that the decision for the cut-off points for admission would be decided by Vice-Chancellors of universities, Rectors of Polytechnics and Mono-techniques and Provosts of Colleges of Education. (NAN)

JAMB Gave Order 62,140 Candidates to Re-Write UTME on July 1st

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) stated that about 62,140 candidates will  re-write the university admission examinations scheduled for Saturday July 1, 2017

The registrar of JAMB, Ishaq Oloyede, stated this in a press briefing after the board’s management meeting in Abuja on Wednesday.

The 62,140 cancelled results include of 57,646 candidates in centres-induced malpractice, 3,811 late registration, and 683 candidates who had biometric challenges.

The JAMB boss said the Board has blacklisted 48 Computer-Based Test (CBT) centres as a result of serious technical insufficiency, exaction, organised examination malpractice and other damaging trangression during the 2017 UTME.

The board also suspended 24 centres for one year due to technical issues. It said the affected centres may be considered for 2019 exams.

Mr. Oloyede explained that the rescheduled examination was for candidates of centres with mass malpractice but who were deemed innocent.

“The rescheduling of examination is for: biometric non verification machine related issues, technical and log out issues, late registration, malfunctioning of servers at the centre and incomplete results,” he said.

According to the board, 1,722,236 candidates registered for the 2017 unified Tertiary Matriculation Board, which is the highest figure ever in the history of the exams.

Cut-Off Marks for JAMB  2017/18 Admission Yet to Be Announced
Image result for Jamb
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it is yet to release cut-off marks for placements into tertiary institutions for 2017 academic year, contrary to reports.

The Head, Media and Information, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Tuesday.

We want to appeal to all candidates to jettison such speculations and engage themselves in more meaningful ventures that would add value to their future,’’ he said.

Benjamin added, “We want to appeal to Nigerians to understand that such candidates whose results are being previewed may not necessarily have participated in any malpractice.
“But rather, centres where they took the examination had issues during the conduct of examination.

“These issues were reflected on the CCTV footage and this suggests why they must be carefully investigated before releasing such results,” he said.

According to him, a very disturbing and unfortunate case is that of a school in Abia where cables were seen to have been connected secretly to a distant hall for hired mercenaries to take the examination for candidates.

“This is very unfortunate given the fact that the school is a missionary school and supposed to be a leading light against such vices.

“But, rather, it was conniving, supporting and indeed championing the evil menace of examination malpractice,’’ Benjamin said in the statement.

He said such results would be treated in accordance with the provision of the law.
