JAMB has given new directives in the 2020 admission guidelines the board released in Abuja, NAIJA NEWS NG learnt.
The board directed that applications must be conducted on its Central Admission Processing System.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board gave the new guideline through its Spokesman, Dr Benjamin Fabian saying candidates must apply for the programme via its office.
He also warned against duplication of forms.
“Universities should resist selling forms for admissions into some listed programmes.
“All applications for admissions to First Degree, National Diploma, National Innovation Diploma and the Nigeria Certificate in Education into full-time, distance learning, part-time, outreach, sandwich, etc, must be processed only through JAMB ,” Fabian added.
Fabian also directed UTME candidates seeking to change their institution as first choice to do so on its website rather than purchasing another application form or apply.
”This is to prevent the issue of double registration which is a violation of the JAMB mandate,” he said.
You would recall that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board had set the minimum cut-off mark for higher institutions for 2020 admission session.
Naija News NG reported that JAMB set the cut-off at 160 for Universities, 120 for Polytechnics and 100 for Colleges of education .
