The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has ordered all tertiary institutions to start the conduct of the first and second choice admissions from August 21.
JAMB revealed this in its recent 2020 admission guidelines released in Abuja by the board Spokesperson, Dr. Benjamin Fabian.
According to him, institutions should advise candidates to apply for the programmes through its office, saying that all admission exercises must be conducted on the Central Admission Processing System.
He added that double registration is not allowed as it is a violation of the JAMB mandate.
His words, “All applications for admissions to First Degree, National Diploma, National Innovation Diploma and the Nigeria Certificate in Education into full-time, distance learning, part-time, outreach, sandwich, etc, must be processed only through JAMB.
”Institutions that desire to place advertisement can do so by advising candidates who applied for the current Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination to change to their institution as first choice rather than requesting the candidates to purchase another application form or apply.
”This is to prevent the issue of double registration which is a violation of the JAMB mandate.”
