The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has offered admissions to about 200,000 candidates for the 2018/2019 academic session.

According to the Head, Media and Information of the JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, in a report sent on Sunday in Lagos, stated that the admission took effect after the board’s policy meeting in June in Gbogan, Osun State.

The exercise as revealed by Fabian Benjamin is done through the Central Admission Process (CAP), an automated process to eliminate all human interference.

“We have so far offered not less than 200,000 first choice admissions to candidates.

“To this effect therefore, we are urging candidates to go to our site and check their admission status and those who have been offered such admission should quickly indicate by accepting and printing such offer, as failure to do so will automatically mean the candidate is no longer interested.

“And therefore, the board may see all such offers as rejected and would have no option than to mop them up and give it to other interested candidates.

“Candidates are to accept or reject all offers not later than Oct.16 as that is when all offers of admissions of first choice will close.

“After that, we will commence admission exercise for the second choice of candidates,” he said.

The head of Media and Information urges all candidates to always visit the board’s official website,for necessary information on their admission status and process.

You may recall that over 1.6 million candidates participated in the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) organized by the Admission board.
