JAMB has cautioned candidates not to accept any admission offer that didn’t come from the JAMB CAP Portal. The board explained that admission can only be given through the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) portal and any admission accepted outside the portal will be invalid.
JAMB made this announcement in the recent bulletin, after it noticed some higher institutions were wrongly changing the preferred programmes of some candidates, thereby making them accept other courses. JAMB has therefore stated that such admission will not be recognized as there will be no regularisation of any irregular admission or condonment of illegal admission.
JAMB has therefore cautioned universities to withdraw and desist from such illegitimate action or be visited with appropriate sanctions.
JAMB said: “In order to circumvent the rights of candidates, the institutions are now using their own portals to unlawfully persuade and pressurise candidates to accept another course and then make a change of course on the JAMB portal to the new course supposedly offered on their own portal.
“These tricks are improper and should be disregarded by the candidates. All institutions employing such tricks are putting into jeopardy the future of the illegitimately favoured less qualified candidates as the board will not condone or regularise such irregular admission.
“Any candidate who accepts such offer of admission, made outside CAPS, does so at his or her own risk. “There shall be no regularisation of any irregular or condonment of illegal admission. “Appropriate caution has been given to these universities to withdraw and desist from such illegitimate action. Any such act will henceforth be visited with appropriate sanctions.”
