1.6 million candidates offered admission by JAMB

Filed in JAMB, School news by on January 28, 2018 0 Comments

Consenting to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, over 1.6 million aspirants have been advocated for entrance into several tertiary institutions in the country for the 2017/2018 academic session.

JAMB recommends 1.6m candidates for admission

The Board’s Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin made the account on Friday, January 26 in Abuja.

Of the 1.6 million candidates offered admission, only 500,000 have accepted their admission as at the time of filing this report.

Benjamin, however, stated that candidates were to accept their admission before the admission is said to be complete.

He attributed the increase to the flexibility of the cut-off marks and also the availability of data through the JAMB CAPS (Central Admission Processing System) which was introduced last year.

“We have over 500,000 accepted admission already. By the time the 1.1 candidates accept, we are now looking at 1.6 admissions. So until the 1.1 candidates accept, by the time they accept, with the 500,000 that have accepted, we will have about 1.6 million accepted,” he said.
