THE JOINT ADMISSION AND MATRICULATION BOARD (JAMB) has insisted that admission processes for 2016/2017 academic calendar year for both federal and state-owned universities will close tomorrow, Wednesday, November 30 2016
A statement released by the examination body’s public relation officer, DR fabian Benjamin, s it that the conclusion at the stakeholders’ meeting held in owerri, IMO state, recently was that all the federal and state universities must adhere strictly to November 30/2016 deadline while polytechnic and college of education and private universities should enjoy between two to three week of extension
He said institutions are expected to submit all their admission list on or before tomorrow and that as soon as approved by the body, the candidate can be connected.
According to Benjamin, the extension would be used to perfect the admission processes for other levels of the higher institutions, saying those not admitted by the universities could be considered by various polytechnics, college of education and private universities.
He said,” As at today I can confirm to you that jamb is standing by the deadline and there may be no going back.we expect everyone to comply because we took the decision together”,
