Newly Introduced JAMB Policy/Eligibility Of Candidates For 2015/2016 Admission Exercise (Full Explanation)

Here is the full explanation of the newly introduced JAMB Policy/Eligibility of candidates for the 2015/2016 admission exercise that has triggered reactions from the affected students and the general public, Unilag explains. Read below:


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) at its 2015 Combined Policy Meeting, held on July 14, 2015 in Abuja, announced the adoption of a policy whereby candidates of universities with surplus applicants for the Unified Matriculation Examinations (UTME) are reassigned to other universities with lower number of candidates than their capacities.

According to the Registrar/CEO of JAMB, Professor Dibu Ojerinde, the policy portends two benefits: continue...

  1. It will be beneficial to “needy Universities” that is universities with lower number of candidates than their capacities, as this will ensure that these universities will have more candidates to admit.
  2. Candidates will have better chances for admission in the universities they are re-assigned to, contrary to situations where they would await admission in the universities of their first choices until the admission exercise closes and they forfeit admission in that session.

This policy has been implemented with immediate effect. Consequently, the eligibility for Post-UTME screening in the University of Lagos like other universities in Nigeria has been determined by JAMB. In effect, only candidates whose names were forwarded to the University of Lagos by JAMB are eligible for the 2015/2016 post-UTME screening.

This means that only candidates whose details have been forwarded to the University of Lagos by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and published on the link: are eligible for the 2015/2016 Post-UTME screening exercise.

Ineligible candidates would have been re-assigned by JAMB to other universities. Such candidates should contact JAMB for assistance.
