The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) at its 2015 Combined Policy Meeting, held on July 14, 2015 in Abuja, announced the adoption of a policy whereby candidates of universities with surplus applicants for the Unified Matriculation Examinations (UTME) are reassigned to other universities with lower number of candidates than their capacities.
According to the Registrar/CEO of JAMB, Professor Dibu Ojerinde, the policy portends two benefits:

1. It will be beneficial to “needy Universities” that is universities with lower number of candidates than their capacities, as this will ensure that these universities will have more candidates to admit.

2. Candidates will have better chances for admission in the universities they are re-assigned to, contrary to situations where they would await admission in the universities of their first choices until the admission exercise closes and they forfeit admission in that session.

This policy has been implemented with immediate effect. Consequently, the eligibility for Post-UTME screening in the University of Lagos like other universities in Nigeria has been determined by JAMB NEW POLICY ON ELIGIBILITY OF CANDIDATES FOR POST UTME. In effect, only candidates whose names were forwarded to the University of Lagos by JAMB are eligible for the 2015/2016 post-UTME screening.

As for me i dont like the idea of jamb choosing for students which university to apply into. They should have instead make it open for students to apply for post utme into any universities of their choice despite the ones they chose(first choice) during their jamb registration.
Jamb should remember that after choosing universities for students they wont pay their school fees. Or maybe they intend to.

They didn’t even carry the masses along before enforcing this rule. Too bad if you ask me!

what do you think?
