    In a statement released by the JAMB’s Head of Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, on Sunday in Lagos, the Federal Government had approved the re-enforcement of admission guideline as recognised by law.

    According to the statement, the admission of candidates into tertiary institutions will be based purely on three pillars, namely merit, catchment and educationally less developed states.

    1. firstly, a list of candidates who qualified for screening into individual institutions based on the three stipulated criteria will be presented;
    2. such screening did not demand for another test in any form written, oral or electronic;
    3. candidates are to present their Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) results /Advanced Level (AL) results for verification and clearing purposes;
    4. WAEC, NECO and NBTE results or its equivalent are acceptable as matriculation requirements;
    5. each candidate is expected to have a minimum of five credits at SSCE, including English, Mathematics and any other three relevant subjects to his or her discipline;
    6. any candidate that does not possess the requirements as listed above is deemed to have failed the screening.
    7. the list of qualified candidates awaiting awaiting SSCE/AL results can be kept in view (K.I.V) pending the release of their results;
    8. consideration of the recommended list as forward by JAMB should be completed within one month from the date of receipt of the list;
    9. any institution that has a shortfall in the admitted candidates could make-up for candidates from other departments on the institutions list;
    10. The screening list has been uploaded on JAMB website www.jamb.org.ng for possible users;
    11. the reasons for rejection of candidates on the list should be clearly stated with proof provided alongside; and
