This is to inform the public that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, (JAMB) has stated that the level of compliance by tertiary institutions to its January 25th admission deadline was 99 percent. About 1 percent of the tertiary institutions were unable to meet the deadline though no reason was given.
The names of institutions that agreed and the ones that did not were not mentioned. We equally do not know if any sanction will be given to schools that did not agree as this was not disclosed by the board.
Dr Benjamin, stressed that a uniform deadline became necessary to ensure that Academic Calendar is adhered to.
He urged candidates who have gained admissions into various institutions and are yet to register or do not have admissions by January 25 to begin making preparations for the 2018 UTME.
