On August 21, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) approved that higher education institutions can begin approving first and second choices for session 2020/2021.
This was included in the 2020 admission guidelines signed on Sunday by JAMB registrar Is-haq Oloyede
The Board warned the institutes against bypassing the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS), which requires approvals to be issued.
“The admission exercise for the 1st and 2nd election will be carried out for all institutions from August 21, 2020 until a later date, which will be determined by the Federal Ministry of Education and communicated to all institutions.
“All applications for admission to the first degree, the national diploma, the national innovation diploma and the Nigeria certificate for training full-time, distance learning, part-time, public relations, sandwich etc. may ONLY be made through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)”, was the statement in part.
Last month, JAMB approved 160 and more as the national minimum limit for admission to public universities for 2020. The board also approved 140 as a UTME minimum score for admission to private universities.
