The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has said that all tertiary Institutions should begin the conduct of the first and second choice admissions from August 21.
The 2020 admission guideline was released in Abuja, by the board Spokesperson, Dr Benjamin Fabian.
Dr Fabian in the guidelines, warned institutions against duplication of forms, adding that they should desist from selling forms for admissions into some listed programmes.
He urged institutions to advise candidates to apply for the programmes through its office, saying that all admissions exercise must be conducted on the Central Admission Processing System.
All applications for admissions to First Degree, National Diploma, National Innovation Diploma and the Nigeria Certificate in Education into full-time, distancing learning, part-time, outreach, sandwich, etc, must be processed only through JAMB.
“Institutions that desire to place advertisement can do so by advising candidates who applied for the current Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination to change to their institution as the first choice rather than requesting the candidates to purchase another application form or apply.
“This is to prevent the issue of double registration which is a violation of the JAMB mandate,” he said.
Recall that as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic crisis, about 1,300,000 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination Candidates were at risk of loosing their admission into university and Polytechnic in 2020.
