JAMB admission to begin August 21

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has given tertiary institutions the nod to begin first and second choice admissions for 2020/2021 from August 21.

The board said the deadline for admissions would be communicated to heads of tertiary institutions at a later date to be determined by the Federal Government.

JAMB insisted that the admission processes must be conducted on Central Admission Processing System (CAPS), warning institutions not to bypass the system.

The board said these in its 2020 admission guidelines signed by its Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, and released on Sunday by its Head of Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin.

“The first and second choices admission exercise be conducted for all institutions from August 21, 2020, to a later date that would be determined by the Federal Ministry of Education and communicated to all the institutions.”

“The uncertainties of the Covid-19 make it impossible to fix a terminal date,” the board said.

JAMB explained that the guidelines for 2020 admission would enable participants in admission process to know what to do.

The board warned heads of institutions against flouting decisions of its 2020 policy meeting, held last month, insisting that all admissions must be carried out in honest and transparent manner.
