JAMB Registrar Prof. Is-haq Oloyede addressed candidates and stakeholders on CAPS training on NTA today Thursday, September 21, 2017. The aim is to give intensive training and sensitization forum on admissions processing system.
The updates from the training are listed below:
Prof Oloyede said JAMB is not an examination body, it is just a ranking body and that is the reason why Examination was not included in our name unlike WAEC, NECO and others who have the E” which means Examination.
“The University has no right to deny a candidate admission when he has meet all the O’level requirements advertised on the JAMB brochure.”
“He noted that there are instances where a University will deny a candidate admission because he doesn’t have further maths, if the further mathematics is not advertised on the JAMB brochure by the University as an admission criteria, then the candidate has been cheated”
“Any candidates that is not properly admitted will find it difficult to do backdoor registration as from this year. So don’t hesitate to tell us your problem”
“He said with the new JAMB CAPS process, candidates would have the right to accept or reject the admission they are given by the Institutions. The said candidates will then be offered to the Open market where universities willing to give that candidate the course he/she wants will be able to contact the candidate”
Institutions have been given the update on the changes on the list of candidates. these lists are updated frequently.
Candidates should note that:
(1) O’level results uploading is now a requirement, candidates must upload their results before they can be considered.(2) Jamb has made it possible through CAPS for various examination bodies like NECO, WAEC and NABTEB to send candidates results directly to jamb for verification.(3) O’level results will be verified before matriculation(4) The CAPS came to replace the manual process of admitting candidates, this would also prevent under the table admission.
This intensive training on CAPS was given so as to make candidates know their rights and responsibilities on the 2017 admission process.
