The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the deadline for admission exercise into the various tertiary institutions for the 2020/2021 academic session. This was contained in a statement made available by JAMB on Sunday morning.
This decision was collectively taken at a virtual meeting with Heads of Tertiary Institutions in the country on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
According to the JAMB Registrar, after a robust and insightful deliberation, members collectively agreed that all public universities are expected to finish their admissions on or before 15th May, 2021, while the private universities and all IEIs, polytechnics and COEs would complete theirs at the agreed date of 15th June 2021.
He noted that 30% of institutions had started admissions into the 2020/2021 Academic Session.
Prof.Oloyede reiterated that the chosen deadlines remained sacrosanct and binding on all institutions as the Board would not tolerate any breaches of the collective decision reached at the meeting.
Concerning the date for the commencement of the 2021/2022 JAMB UTME/DE sales of form, the JAMB Registrar disclosed that the date will be announced by next week.
Meanwhile, the Board has urged all institutions to adhere strictly to all advisories issued to them on inter/intra-university transfers, foreign inter-university transfers and fresh foreign candidates, change of programmes and institutions and other essential processes related to admission in order to avoid unnecessary bickerings that could endanger the future of innocent candidates and their subsequent mobilization for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). He added these advisories and procedures were to serve as guides for them on how to handle the various issues as they arose.
