The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has opened its portal for institutions to upload names of shortlisted applicants for the 2020/2021 admission.
Registrar of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this in an interview with The Nation in Abuja.
He said all admission processes must go through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) for approval.
The JAMB Registrar noted that only qualified candidates as recommended by their institutions for admission will be approved by the board.
He also said most institution, particularly private had commenced admission.
Oloyede, however, added that public universities were yet to fully kick-start the process because they are yet to conclude admissions for last year.
“Take note also that admission is not just for universities. There are polytechnics and colleges of education and except for the closure because of COVID-19, they are not affected by the strike.
“There are different stages of the session and therefore, it is not one size fits all,” he said.
The registrar also said a date has not been fixed for the sale of the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) forms.
