JAMB Opens Portal as 2020/2021 Admission Begins.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has opened its portals for institutions to access for the 2020/2023 admission.
This confirmation was noticed in the exam’s body website, where institutions can now gain access to upload names of shortlisted applicants for the 2020/2021 admission.
The portal only gives institutions access to upload names of shortlisted applicants for the 2020/2021 admissions for the 2020/2021 academic session.
It was also indicated that all institution’s admission processes must go through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) for approval.
CAPS is a system that streamlines the Admissions Process, addresses the challenges associated with the manual approach, restores the autonomy of the tertiary institutions with respect to admissions, makes candidates the focus and empowers them with information on available choices of institutions and programs, expands admission opportunities, eliminates multiple admissions, and provides easily retrievable data for decision making and research on the Education Sector in the country. It also helps JAMB to refocus on its founding ideals as the Clearing House for admissions into the tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
EDUCARENEWS, earlier this week reported, a release issued by JAMB in its weekly bulletin, where it warned the public not to fall prey to scammers and fraudsters peddling rumors about the sale of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), confirming that the body is yet to begin the sale of the form.
