JAMB To Enforce Provision Of O-Level Results Before Admission


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board,
JAMB, has said it would demand for the records of
Ordinary and Advanced Level results of candidates recommended by tertiary institutions before offering
them admission.

JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede said this during this year’s meeting on admissions exercise/processes
for Innovative Enterprise Institutions in Abuja on
Tuesday.

The registrar said that institutions must maintain
the standard set by the board beginning from this
year’s admission.
”From this year now, we are demanding records of the O levels of the candidates you are admitting
and that is for the first time,” Mr. Oloyede said.
“When you recommend a person for admission we
want to see what qualification he or she possesses
not just you telling me that he or she scored 300 in
UTME. What of the real qualification?” he said.
He said the board would stop the ”regularisation of
all forms of illegal admissions conducted by tertiary
institutions from this year.”

“Any admission ‘done under the table’ would not be regularised. Candidates and tertiary institutions
must desist from engaging in any form of illegal
admission. Illegal admission in terms of people not
even taking the unified tertiary matriculation
examination, UTME at all not to talk of scoring zero

Illegal admission by even admitting people who do
not have the requisite ordinary level (O level)
because before now JAMB does not have the
record of their O level (results).”
The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board,
JAMB, is a Nigerian entrance examination board for tertiary-level institutions. The board conducts
entrance examinations for prospective
undergraduates into Nigerian universities. The
board is also charged with the responsibility of
administering similar examinations for applicants to Nigerian public and private monotechnics,
polytechnics and colleges of educations.
