JAMB retracts 2016 admission list sent to universities

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has retracted the list of recommended candidates for admission earlier sent to the tertiary institutions, reports ITRealms.

Head of Media at JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin confirmed this to ITRealms, saying that the retraction was to ensure that the University Senate perform its statutory responsibility of conducting the selection of candidates and refer it to JAMB for confirmation in line with the admission criteria of merit, catchment and educationally disadvantaged states as  directed by the Hon Minister of Education at the policy committee meeting.

ITRealms gathered that the earlier list was sent to help fast track the process of admission so as to allow other tiers of institutions also conduct their admission. 

Candidates, he said, should not panic because this is part of the process of the 2016 admission exercise.

“JAMB regrets any inconvenience this decision would have caused the tertiary institutions. The Board regrets any inconvenience it's proactive step would have caused the tertiary institutions,” he said.
