JAMB finally decided on 2020 admission process, who will give candidates admission, JAMB or schools?

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has clear the misconception of admission issuer by candidates through their support group.

After the conduction of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), the results of the examination had been released to all candidates that participated in the 2020 UTME.

However, what’s next after the results had been released is the conduction of post utme screening exercise by the institutions of the candidates who have written and participated in the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). This screening may be aptitude test, oral interview or documental screening exercise. It differs from one institution to another. So you should be on the lookout for the one your school employs.

What’s next after the post utme screening exercise?

Admission process will follow post utme screening exercise. Admission process is the process whereby candidates are being selected to be considered for admission in various institutions of learning to study the selected programme by them.

In the past, some candidates may be offered admission to study a different programme by their institutions but the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has condemned that act as a dishonest act and a cunning way to deprived the candidates of their choice of programme. The board had stated that no institution should do this otherwise they will be sanctioned.

Who will issue admission for the candidates?

This is a question that has kept etching in Candidates’ mind as they doubt the issuer of admission to them.

This is actual purpose of this article. Who will offer candidates admission, is it the schools or the board, JAMB? The board has made clear through their support group that they are not the one to offer candidates admission but their work is to check and verify the list of the candidates who are picked by the institutions for admission. Hence, the institution is in charge of offering admission to candidates not JAMB.

The conversation lies herein:

ANONYMOUS: Hello jamb support,

I would like to ask about the date for the commencement of admission process. When will admission process commence?

Secondly, what are the flaws or mistakes a candidate can make that may lead to his/her admission being revoked or denied?

I look forward to your precise and definite response.

Thanks for your understanding.


Welcome to Jamb support system.

Jamb does not give admissions to candidate, Every school is in charge of their admission process, the list of the admitted candidate by each school is only sent to Jamb through the Caps portal for approval. Some schools have already commenced their admission process. Please contact your chosen school for their admissions requirements for your course.

Thank you for contacting the Jamb support center.

According to JAMB support, the institutions are in charge of admission process not JAMB. So candidates should contact their school of choice for admission requirements for the programme they have chosen to study.
