Post-UTME: Applicants Must Go To First Choice Universities For Tests – JAMB

JAMBThe Federal Government has directed the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to reverse its decision to make candidates who apply to universities with surplus applicants for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) to be reassigned to other universities with fewer applicants. ‎

Consequently, all applicants are to proceed to their first choice universities for the post-UTME tests bearing in mind the cut-off marks established by the universities.

Protests followed the policy in various universities in the country.

Mr. MacJohn ‎Nwaobiala‎, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education told State House correspondents about the policy reversal on Tuesday after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari of his ministry’s activities at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
JAMB adopted the policy at its 2015 Combined Policy Meeting.

Protests started at the University of Lagos when the institution’s authorities announced that only candidates whose names were officially forwarded by JAMB would be eligible to participate in this year’s UNILAG post-UTME.
