Says institutions must only comply to existing three
admission pillars
Contrary to media reports that the Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Board (JAMB) has imposed the Point
System Option (PSO) on higher institutions as the new
admission guidelines for 2016 admission processes, the
examination body has distanced itself from such report,
describing it as a figment of the imagination of its
proponents. Speaking exclusively with Saturday Telegraph
yesterday, the Head of JAMB’s Media and Information
Unit, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said the examination body at
no point made such a recommendation.
He noted that a section of the media had only scooped
the information from a presentation to some education
stakeholders by the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde,
which was posted on the examination body’s website.
This is even as he added that as against the report, JAMB
would no longer issue any admission letter to any
candidate but would ensure that the three admission
pillars of Merit,Catchment Area and the Education
Disadvantaged Areas must be observed by all the higher
institutions across the country.
He said: “It is irresponsible for any media to have
credited any information that did not emanate from
JAMB to us. JAMB did not create any new admission
guidelines. Some people just went to our website to pick
a document which was presented to a session of
stakeholders comparing various admission systems by
different institutions. “No university or polytechnic is
instructed by JAMB to adopt such a policy. In fact, we
won’t issue admission letter any longer as the Minister
has mandated us.
What we are to do is to provide admission list and album
to the institutions and ensure that the 45 per cent for
merit; 35 per cent for catchment area and the 20 per cent
for education disadvantaged areas, are observed to the
letter. The universities are to issue admission letters
