JAMB cautioned varsities against irregular admissions
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said it had cautioned some universities offering admissions to candidates on their school portals , without following the guidelines on the Central Admission Processing System.
The board stated this in a presentation by its Registrar , Prof. Is – haq Oloyede , in Abuja , obtained by our correspondent .
It listed the University of Nigeria , Nsukka ; the University of Ibadan ; and the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic , Ogun State as examples .
The board warned the universities to “ desist from such illegitimate actions . ”
JAMB said it would not regularise the admission of such candidates not admitted through CAPS .
The registrar said , “On the warehousing of candidates into school portal, JAMB has found out that some institutions have devised a method of offering admissions to candidates outside CAPS, on their own designated portals .
The device is a ploy to lure innocent and more qualified candidates away from their preferred programmes.
“ These are tricks meant to usurp the rights of the candidates and they are improper and should be disregarded by the candidates .
Such institutions are putting into jeopardy the future of these candidates .
“ We have the University of Nigeria , Nsukka , which has a quota of 200 for Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery.
After admitting 106 candidates on CAPS , it released 448 on the UNN portal , whereas there are 342 qualified and not admitted on the CAPS. ”
It added , “ Also for Law , it has a quota of 250 and admitted 125 candidates on CAPS , whereas it released another 240 names on the school portal .
“ We also have the case of one Hannat at the University of Ibadan , who applied for Human Nutrition but was transferred to Agricultural Extension .
Her Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination score was 242 and the post UTME was 72. She had an aggregate score of 66. 25, but the university then admitted people below her .
“ We like to inform candidates that anyone who accepts any offer of admission made outside CAPS, that is, not on the JAMB ’ s candidates ’ profile , does so at their own risk.
There shall be no regularisation of any irregular admission .
JAMB has given caution to the universities to immediately withdraw and desist from such illegitimate actions . ”
