Check if it Is Jamb Or The School That Offers Admission| complete fact
Is it Jamb (joint admission and Matriculation board) or the School (university, polytechnic or college of education) you applied to that offers admission? :
To most people it’s jamb that offers admission while to others it is the school that offers admission, to the best of our knowledge the two bodies plays a critical roles on yearly basis during admission process.
You will recall that the main purpose of JAMB is to conduct an entrance exam for all higher institution in Nigeria be it polytechnic, college of education or even university and also to award admission to deserving candidates ; the only body recognize by law to conduct any written exam is JAMB.
on the issue of awarding of admission to candidates truth be told the joint admission and Matriculation board JAMB is the only body that has the power to award an admission to candidates.
If you check your admission letter very well you will see the signature of jamb registrar on it, had it been its your school that gives admission you should see the signature of your vice chancellor of your institution on it.
Your institution only awards you a degree such as a BSc on economics after you must have probably satisfied the rules and requirements sets by the senate of the institution. That is why you usually see the signature of your institution on your results certificate and also the school contact address.
On the other hand the law of the federal republic of Nigeria does not recognize post UTME screening exercise, what we are trying to say is that post UTME remains illegal in the face of the law, that was the reason why the senate and federal high Court recently asked all institutions to cancel anything called screening exercise.
Although most associations of lectures of our institution kick against it and even threatened to go on strike citing poor funding as one of the main reasons of the existence of post utme.
Although schools plays a crucial roles in trying to handpicked a number of candidates they feel are more qualified to be considered for admission.
School only consider those who they prefer while JAMB actually approves, stamp and sign the list put forward by the institution.
