JAMB Withdraws Admission List for 2016

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), on Sunday, withdrew the admission list it had earlier sent to universities, colleges of education and polytechnics for the 2016 academic session citing the need to allow University Senate perform their responsibilities.

A statement by JAMB's Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin said, “the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have withdrawn the list of recommended candidates for admission earlier sent to the tertiary institutions.

“This is to ensure that the University Senate perform its statutory responsibility of conducting the selection of candidates and refer it to JAMB for confirmation in line with the admission criteria of merit, catchment and educationally disadvantaged states as  directed by the Hon Minister of Education at the policy committee meeting.”

Benjamin explained that “the earlier list was sent to help fast track the process of admission so as to allow other tiers of institutions also conduct their admission. 

“Candidates should not panic because this is part of the process of the 2016 admission exercise. JAMB regrets any inconvenience this decision would have caused the tertiary institutions," the statement further said.

According to officials, the withdrawal is an attempt to adhere to the new ban of Post-UTME, giving the universities and other tertiary education institutions the window to process the admission before referring to JAMB authorities in Abuja.
