JAMB Warned Institutions For Admitting Unqualified Candidates

The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has warned tertiary institutions not to engage in fraudulent activities by admitting unqualified candidates into their institutions.

Prof. Oloyede, who gave the warning during a meeting with the board’s strategic planning and preparation for the supervision and administration of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in Abuja said these institutions engage in fraudulent practices pave way for their preferred candidates in place of qualified ones.

He said such fraudulent methods included denying candidates screening scores to disqualify them, warehousing candidates for pre-degree, stratification of candidates into programmes before summation of scores and lowering of merit aggregate cut-off marks to jump others.

He added that institutions also abused the catchment area policy to admit unqualified candidates.

Oloyede, therefore, advised institutions to desist from such acts, noting that the 2019 admission process would be done purely on merit.
