JAMB reverses its policy, you can now write Post UTME in your institution of first choice


I told you here yesterday that SERAP and students affected by the newly introduced JAMB policy has sued the examination board and Unilag to court. After the whole thing, coupled with reactions from other stakeholders, The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB has reversed its new policy.

Therefore, every Post UTME candidate who has scored the required cut-off mark can now write post UTME exams in their institution of first choice where they have been denied before as a result of the JAMB policy. continue..........

The JAMB's Public Relations Officer, Mr. Benjamin Fabian who made this known however added that after writing the post UTME exams in their Universities of first choice, some students who don't make it might still be redistributed to another institution.

He said:
“When they write the post-UTME  in the schools of their first choices, they may wish to consider the other places we have taken them to for admissions. 
”The reason is that if they don’t get admission in their first choices institution, they will get in the second.”
"JAMB’s effort in redistributing candidates was only geared towards helping candidates of over-subscribed institutions gain admission to other federal or state universities rather than wasting their scores."
