The Joint Admissions Matriculation Board have instructed that all registrations for the 2020/21 academic year must begin on August 21, 2020. This will aid to speed up the admission process for the next academic year.
The board spokesman said that the sale of Post UTME forms by different institutions would not be condoned. All registrations would have to go through CAPS. The data for all the JAMB candidates including Biometrics will still be applicable for all registrations for the screening exercise into different institutions.
“The admission-exercise for the 2020/2021 academic session would be conducted on CAPS. No institution is allowed to publish, announce, exhibit or paste any name(s) of admitted candidate without prior approval of the name on CAPS. Indeed, the exercise is to be fully conducted only on CAPS.
The different institutions have been exhorted to maintain COVID -19 protocols in all their activities in order to flatten the curve and reduce spread of the virus.
While warning institutions not to charge above N2,000 for any form of screening or make candidates incur other screening related expenses directly or indirectly, JAMB warned against any request for photograph or biometric data from candidates by any institution.
Also candidates who obtained A-levels or other tertiary certificates are eligible to upgrade to DE from UTME for free. This will go a long way to avoid impersonation and other fraudulent acts in the educational sector.
