Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Recommends 1.6 Million Candidates For 2017 Admission

This is to inform all those candidates that took part in the 2017 The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exercise, that JAMB has announced that out of the 1.6 million candidates that the board recommended for admission in the 2017/2018 Academic session, only about 500,000 candidates have accepted their admission.

This is far beyond the number recorded in previous years. According to the JAMB Head of media, Dr Fabian, the reason for this is due to the flexibility in cut-off marks as well as the introduction of the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).

The admission process ended January 25th, 2018.  Candidates can still accept their admission on the JAMB portal. This means that the remaining 1.1 candidates who are yet to accept their admission can still do so.

He expressed optimism that schools will comply with the deadline as most of the school have already completed their admission process while those that are yet to fully complete theirs are at 95% completion.
