JAMB is set to hold 2018 admission policy meeting to define all modalities for admission of qualified candidates into Nigerian tertiary institutions for the 2018/2019 academic session.
The Head of Media and Information for JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin stated that students would also have access to first hand information on how the admissions would be conducted including the requirements.
According to Benjamin,
“The board has concluded arrangements for this year’s admission policy meeting with all stakeholders in the education sector.
“This kind of meeting is to give room for contributions as well as ensure fairness and equity in the conduct of the 2018/2019 admission process. We are expecting in attendance all heads of tertiary institutions across the country.
“We shall be convening this meeting, for the first time, in the South-West, Osun precisely.
“All the South-West governors have been invited coupled with other critical stakeholders.
“To ensure that there is no misrepresentation of facts or information, there will be a live coverage of the meeting on NTA from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m, so that Nigerians can follow the proceedings,”
It was also stated that this year’s admission process will also be conducted through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) due to the fact that this system eliminates all human interference in the admission exercise, where candidates are selected purely on the basis of defined criteria.
