• The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has modified its registration procedure for candidates seeking admission into various tertiary institutions in the 2016/2017 academic session.

    According to the JAMB Information Officer, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the board introduced the “preferred choice” platform in its portal to enable candidates to have wider opportunities of securing admission.

    The modification, he said, would lessen competition among candidates seeking placement to the nation’s “oversubscribed” universities.

    Benjamin said, “What we did initially was that you only have one choice. Now, we have made it in such a way that if you miss the University of Lagos; University of Nigeria, Nsukka; Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, and Ahmadu Bello University, Zaira, you will have an opportunity of going to another school.

    “Before, all universities will be in first and second choice and that will not solve any problem. We have now decided to put a few of those schools we feel will have more spaces as more preferred.

    “Institutions placed on the more preferred choice are those that are mostly not oversubscribed. This is because it will not make any sense if you place institutions like the ABU, UNILAG, OAU and UNN, when in actual sense they cannot even admit one third of the candidates that will choose them as most preferred.”

    He advised candidates to note that sale of admission form for the session has already commenced. Candidates are to read the details of the registration procedure from the link below;

        You can apply for change of course/institution immediately after the UTME examination. The board will announce the procedure when due. We will duly inform you then.
