JAMB To Create Platform For Candidates To Know Why They Were Denied Admission

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has stated that the board will create a platform to enable some candidates who scored 250 yet fail to secure admission in their respective institutions of choice to know the reasons they were denied admission by these schools.

This was disclosed by Dr. Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s Head of Media and Information, during an interview with newsmen in Lagos.

This he sid will help engender transparency and equity as well as ensure that candidates do not fall prey to fraudsters who may claim to be in a position to influence their placements if they (candidates), can meet their terms.

“The board, has through the Central Admission Process System (CAPS), defined all parameters for admission, and once a candidate meets the requirements, such a candidate is automatically picked by the system without interference.

“Unfortunately due to the ignorance of some of these candidates on how the system is being configured to engender transparency, equity, and fairness, they allow themselves to be defrauded by some criminals, parting away with huge sums.

“Apparently, these candidates, in an event of being able to secure admission through the CAPS, attribute their success to these criminals who had collected money from them, without knowing that they made no contribution to their success.”

According to him, it is against this backdrop that the board has decided to create a platform that will guide high scoring candidates, from 250 and above on their admission status.

Dr. Benjamin called on all institutions of higher learning to be part of this initiative of disclosing why some high scoring candidates may not be admitted.
