JAMB Plans To Announce Sale of 2021/2022 Form Next Week

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), said on Sunday that all admissions across the country in the tertiary institutions for the 2020/2021 academic session would end by June 15, 2021.

A statement by the spokesperson for JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said the decision was collectively taken at a virtual meeting with heads of tertiary institutions in the country on Wednesday February 24 2021.

After a robust and insightful deliberation, members collectively agreed that all public universities are expected to finish their admissions on or before May 15, 2021, while the private Universities and all IEIs, Polytechnics and COEs would complete theirs at the agreed date of June 15, 2021,” Benjamin said.

According to Benjamin, JAMB would announce the commencement date for the sale of application form for the 2021/2022 academic session next week.

The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said the meeting with the institutions was aimed at knowing the level they had reached on the 2020/21 admissions.

He reiterated that the deadlines remained sacrosanct and binding on all institutions.

He said the meeting would enable JAMB to put necessary machinery in place for the 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination/Direct Entry registration exercise.

Earlier, Oloyede informed the gathering that only 30 per cent  of institutions had started admissions for the 2020/2021 academic session.

He stated that there was the need to collectively decide when to close the 2020/2021 admission.

Meanwhile, JAMB has urged all institutions to adhere strictly to all advisories issued to them on inter/intra-university transfers, foreign inter-university transfers and fresh foreign candidates, change of programmes and institutions and other essential processes related to admission.
