The Joint Admission and Management Board JAMB has stipulated a policy for all Nigeria Institutions to follow as a tangible guide in giving Students Admissions. This was review by the Jamb Registrer, Prof Isaq Oloyade on Friday when he insist that there should not be any favoritism during The Release Of Merited Lists by all the institutions.
The Policy will be a strict information line for Admitting Candidates in various Institutions and this may attract a penalty for any of the institutions that violates them.
What Is The Policy All About? How Can It Be Maintained In All The Nigerian Institutions?
This question has always strike my mind because I believe that not all the institutions may abide on that policy due to the nature of our Country. “JAMB will resist such arbitrariness and illegal introduction of extraneous factors which were not contained in the published advertisement made available to the candidates.
“We should be able to explain to every Nigerian child who had applied for admission, why s/he was not admitted into his/her institution of choice,” he said.
According to him, the right of Senate or Academic Board of each Institution on Admissions of Candidates is subject to the following conditions:
JAMB Admission Guidelines for All Institutions 2016/2017 Academic Session
- Guidelines stipulated by proprietors of the institutions
b. 60:40 (Science/Art) ratio for conventional universities
c. 80:20 (Science/Art) ratio for non-conventional universities
d. 70:30 (Technology/Non-technology) ratio for National Diploma Awarding Institutions
e. Use of 2016 JAMB, UTME results’ print-out for all candidates
f. Adherence to published subject combinations of various courses as specified by the Senate/Academic Board and included in the 2016 JAMB brochure
g. Adherence to the 2016 Admissions quota as prescribed by the Regulatory Bodies (NUC, NBTE, NCCE)
h. (For Federal universities) The quota stipulated by the Federal Executive Council concerning Merit, Catchment and Educationally less developed states, should be complied with.
Mr. Oloyede stated that the deadline for approved institutions’ admission panels was still November 30, 2016.
He also said the second Technical Committee Meeting would take place at Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education, Owerri, Imo state on November 14, 2016.
