2020 ADMISSIONS: JAMB, HEADS OF TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS SET 15TH JUNE, 2021 DEADLINE

All admissions in Nigeria’s tertiary institutions for the 2020/2021 Academic Session would end by 15th June, 2021.
The decision was collectively taken at a virtual meeting with Heads of Tertiary Institutions in the country.

Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said the  meeting with the institutions was aimed at knowing the level they had reached on the 2020/21 Admissions scale and forestall an endless admission regime generated by series of disruptions to daily life occasioned  by the COVID-19 pandemic.  the meeting is expected to enable the Board to put necessary machinery in place for the 2021/2022 Unified tertiary matriculation examination/Direct entry Registration Exercise.

Prof Oloyede also  informed the gathering   that only 30% of institutions had started admissions into the 2020/2021 Academic Session.

Hence, the need to collectively decide when  to close the 2020/2021 Admission Exercise.

After a robust and insightful deliberation, members collectively agreed that all public universities are expected to finish their admissions on or before 15th May, 2021, while the private universities and all innovation enterprise institutions, polytechnics and Colleges of Education would complete theirs at the agreed date of 15th June, 2021.

Prof.Oloyede reiterated that the chosen deadlines remained sacrosanct and binding on all institutions as the Board would not tolerate any breaches of the collective decision reached at the meeting.

He said the Board would announce in a week’s time the commencement date for the sale of application documents for the 2021/2022 Academic Session.
