The Registrar of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has shows his disapproval for any discrepancies and as such has warned candidates against accepting any admission that does not pass through its Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) as any offer of admission not validated on JAMB’S profile page or offered through the CAPS is invalid.

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has shows his disapproval for any discrepancies and as such has warned candidates against accepting any admission that does not pass through its Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) as any offer of admission not validated on JAMB’S profile page or offered through the CAPS is invalid.

This info stand as a result of some students being given admission without the permission of the Joint admission and matriculation bored According to JAMB, there have been complaints from the general public that three Public Universities have devised a method of “offering admission” to candidates outside the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) on their own designated portals.

As this practices has been on for some time, JMB described this as a deliberate act done with the intent to lure unsuspecting candidates to accept other programmes  (courses) aside from their programmes  (courses) of choice.

Because of the matters that arise as a result of this the joint admission and matriculation board re-emphasised that the CAPS system is designed to

  1. To give a straight warning and also to prevent institutions from unilaterally changing or proposing a candidate for admission into other programmes (courses) other than his/her chosen one, which is very common today in various institution.

ii.Favoring students with high connections so the Joint admission and matriculation board has disallow an institution to skip a higher ranking candidate to pick a less ranking candidate;

iii. By dis-allow an institution to recommend a substitute programme for the consent or rejection by a relatively low-ranking candidate who is not likely to secure a place in his/her initial programme; and

  1. allow a low-ranking candidate on each programme to, on his or her own, opt-out of consideration from the initial programme and be considered for a programme where he/she ranks high enough to be considered.

According to the joint admission and matriculation board it would help requlate the admission process, it, therefore, warned that any candidate who accepts such offer of admission does so at his or her own risk as there will be no regularisation of any irregular or illegal admission.

The joint admission and matriculation board (JAMB) added that appropriate caution has been given to these universities which are to promptly withdraw and desist from such illegitimate action and any of such act will henceforth be visited with appropriate sanctions.

Now the problem with this action is that most students majority of them were given admission by their institution instead of JAMB, so if this action is to take place in 2020 that means we will low amount admission as most admission are been given through the universities,If this post was helpful why not comment below so we know your opinion thanks.
