The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclose that all admissions in the nation’s tertiary institutions for the 2021/2022 Academic Session would end by 15th June, 2021.

According to JAMB’S Head, Media and Information Dr Fabian Benjamin, this decision was jointly taken at a virtual meeting with Heads of Tertiary Institutions in the country on Wednesday, 24th February 2021.

Speaking during the meeting, the Administrative officer of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said the meeting with the institutions was meant at knowing the level they had reached on the 2020/21 admissions scale and to put necessary apparatus in place for the 2021/2022 UTME/DE Registration Exercise,

In his words, “After a vigorous and insightful discussion, members jointly agreed that all public universities are expected to finish their admissions on or before 15th May, 2021, while the private universities and all IEIs, polytechnics and COEs would complete theirs at the settled date of 15th June, 2021.

Prof. Oloyede recapped the stakeholders that the chosen deadlines remained untouchable and binding on all institutions as the Board would not accept any breaches of the collective decision reached at the meeting.

The JAMB Registrar also disclosed that the Board would announce in a week’s time the commencement date for the sale of application forms for the 2021/2022 Academic Session. We advise candidates to start getting ready for their exams using the JAMB CBT computer soft wares and JAMB CBT mobile app

In the meantime, the Board has urged all institutions to observe strictly to all advisories issued to them on inter/intra-university transfers, foreign inter-university transfers and fresh foreign candidates, change of programmes and institutions and other important processes related to admission in order to avoid unnecessary dispute that could endanger the future of innocent candidates and their successive mobilization for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). He added these advisories and procedures were to serve as guides for them on how to handle the different issues as they arose.
