JAMB 2016 ADMISSION: We won’t interfere with candidates’ list—OLOYEDE

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, JAMB, yesterday assured tertiary institutions that the board would not interfere with the list of candidates sent by them for the 2016 admissions, either by addition or removal of names.

The Registrar/Chief Executive of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, stated this during the ongoing technical meeting on 2016 admissions to first choice institutions at Bayero University Kano, BUK, but e-mailed to journalists in Abuja. Oloyede said he was committed to ensuring that admissions were concluded before or by the approved deadline of November 30, 2016, because “to whom much is given, a lot is expected.”

He warned that no name of candidate must emanate from any other source outside the list prepared and recommended by the tertiary institutions. Oloyede said: “As usual, the 2016 admissions, will be as smooth as ever. The only difference between this year’s admissions process and what has always been the practice, is the policy that there should be no written post-UTME test. All other processes should and will be as they have always been. ‘

“The Senate or Academic Board of each institution has the prerogative of admitting candidates to their respective institutions subject, of course, only to national policies which include guidelines stipulated by the proprietors of the institutions, 60:40 (Science/Art) ratio for Conventional Universities, 80:20 (Science/Art) ratio for Non-Conventional Universities, 70:30 (Technology/Non-Technology) ratio for National Diploma Awarding Institutions, Use of 2016 JAMB UTME results printouts for all candidates who scored 180 and above, among others.”

Adherence to subject combinations of various courses as specified by the Senate/Academic Board and included in the 2016 UTME Brochure, adherence to the 2016 admissions quota as prescribed by the Regulatory Bodies (NUC/NBTE/NCCE) and for Federal Universities, the criteria stipulated by the Federal Executive Council concerning Merit, Catchment and Educationally Less Developed States should be complied with. “In the discharge of this national assignment, it is important that we act with focus on what is beneficial to the largest number of Nigerians.

We must avoid adding to the burden of the masses of our people who rightly yearn for higher education as a veritable means of active participation in public life.’’ He commended his former predecessors, saying “l assure you all that the hands of fellowship which my predecessors have extended to the institutions would be strengthened for the advancement of national goals.

‘’My immediate predecessor, Prof. ‘Dibu Ojerinde, in particular and his predecessors in general, have lifted the Board to an enviable standard of international repute and we cannot afford to do less. “It must be made categorically clear that the task of JAMB is coordination and not substitution of the traditional responsibilities of the Senates/Academic Boards of tertiary institutions.

‘’Consequently, no candidate must emanate from any other source (JAMB inclusive) outside the list prepared and recommended by the institutions.

‘’JAMB has the right to reject candidates for non-compliance with extant rules and regulations but will not be allowed to substitute or originate any names without the prior concurrence of the institutions. We should ensure that the admissions exercise is concluded before or by the approved deadline of November 30, 201
