Do not admit unqualified candidates, JAMB tells institutions

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has advised tertiary institutions against engaging in sharp practices by admitting unqualified candidates into their institutions.

Jamb Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, gave the warning during a meeting with critical stakeholders on the board’s strategic planning and preparation for the supervision and administration of the 2019 unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) in Abuja.

According to him, these institutions engage in fraudulent activities to pave way for their preferred candidates in place of qualified ones.

He said such fraudulent methods included denying candidates screening scores to disqualify them, warehousing candidates for pre-degree, stratification of candidates into programmes before summation of scores and lowering of merit aggregate cut-off marks to jump others.

Professor Oloyede, therefore, advised institutions to desist from such acts, noting that the 2019 admission process would be done purely on merit.
