The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said it had cautioned some universities offering admissions to candidates on their school portals, without following the guidelines on the Central Admission Processing System.
The board stated this in a presentation by its Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, in Abuja, obtained by our correspondent. It listed the University of Nigeria, Nsukka; the University of Ibadan; and the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Ogun State as examples.
The board warned the universities to “desist from such illegitimate actions.”
JAMB said it would not regularise the admission of such candidates not admitted through CAPS.
The registrar said, “On the warehousing of candidates into school portal, JAMB has found out that some institutions have devised a method of offering admissions to candidates outside CAPS, on their own designated portals. The device is a ploy to lure innocent and more qualified candidates away from their preferred programmes.
“These are tricks meant to usurp the rights of the candidates and they are improper and should be disregarded by the candidates. Such institutions are putting into jeopardy the future of these candidates.
