The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has announced, Sunday, the deadline for 2019/2020 admissions exercise in all public and private tertiary institutions across the country.
In a virtual meeting with Heads of tertiary institutions in the federation on February 24th, 2021, the JAMB registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede in a bid to scale the admissions level in all public and private universities also agreed to fix a closing date for 2019/2020 JAMB UTME admissions exercises. This is to plan a new order that will precede the 2021/2022 academic session.
In line with this announcement, all public universities are expected to conclude their admission exercises on or before May 15, 2012 while private universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of education are expected to conclude their admissions exercise on or before June 15, 2021.
To commence the admissions procedure for 2021/2022 academic session, JAMB has equally fixed a date to announce the sale of new admission forms.
In a statement by Prof. Oloyede, while announcing the Boards collective decision Sunday morning said that JAMB will announce in a week time a date for sale of new forms for the 2021/2022 admissions exercise.
Expressing the severity of the earlier decision on admissions deadline, the Registrar insisted that all the decisions about admissions deadline shall remain sacrosanct and binding on all tertiary institutions as JAMB will not tolerate any bridge in the collective decisions.
