The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the opening of its portal for the institutions to upload names of shortlisted applicants for the 2020/2021 admission.
This was announced by the board’s registrar, Professor Is-haq Oloyede, in Abuja on Tuesday, January 5, The Nation reports.
According to the JAMB registrar, all the admission processes will go through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) for approval. JAMB registrar Ish-aq Oloyede announced the opening of portal for the 2020/2021 admissions.
“Take note also that admission is not just for universities. There are polytechnics and colleges of education and except for the closure because of COVID-19, they are not affected by the strike.”
Sale of forms not yet official
Meanwhile, JAMB said it has not commenced the sale of forms for 2021 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The examination body made this known on Monday, January 4, through a weekly bulletin of the office of the registrar.
JAMB also warned the prospective candidates to be wary of the rumour mongers and fraudsters, adding that the clarification became necessary because of fake news.
The examination board also attributed the delay in the sale of the form to the prevailing COVID-19 crisis in the country.
JAMB, however, disclosed it would conclude arrangements soon on the sale of the form.
Meanwhile, in a related development, JAMB has rewarded the five best performing tertiary institutions in the country with a total sum of N375 million for their outstanding performance.
