JAMB Offers University Admissions to 200,000 Candidates - OkayNG NewsJAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board () has offered admission to  200,000 candidates for the 2018/2019 academic session.

Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s head of media and information, said the admission took effect after the board’s policy meeting in June in Gbongan, Osun State, southwest Nigeria.

According to him, the exercise was done through the Central Admission Process (CAP), an automated process to eliminate all human interference.

His words: “We have so far offered not less than 200,000 first choice admissions to candidates.

“To this effect, therefore, we are urging candidates to go to our site and check their admission status and those who have been offered such admission should quickly indicate by accepting and printing such offer, as failure to do so will automatically mean the candidate is no longer interested.

“And therefore, the board may see all such offers as rejected and would have no option than to mop them up and give them to other interested candidates.”

More than 1.6 million candidates wrote JAMB-organised 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
