The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and heads of various tertiary institutions in the country have agreed to conclude all 2020/2021 admissions by June 15th.
A statement by JAMB Head of Media and Publicity, Dr Fabian Benjamin in Abuja, says public universities would conclude admissions a month ahead of private institutions, polytechnics and colleges of education.
According to JAMB, heads of institutions and itself reached the agreement at a virtual meeting on Wednesday (Feb. 24) during which issues concerning admissions process were discussed.
The board said that the meeting was aimed at knowing the level the institutions had reached on the 2020/21 Admissions scale.

JAMB said that it would announce, in a week’s time, the commencement date for the sale of application documents for the 2021/2022 Academic Session.
JAMB also urged all institutions to adhere strictly to advisories issued to them on inter- university transfers, intra-university transfers, foreign inter-university transfers and fresh foreign candidates.
It also advised them to adhere to advisories on change of programmes and institutions and other essential processes relating to admission.
