by the newly introduced JAMB policy has sued the
examination board and Unilag to court. After the whole
thing, coupled with reactions from other stakeholders, The
Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB has
reversed its new policy.
Therefore, every Post UTME candidate who has scored the
required cut-off mark can now write post UTME exams in
their institution of first choice where they have been denied
before as a result of the JAMB policy. continue……….
The JAMB’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Benjamin Fabian
who made this known however added that after writing the
post UTME exams in their Universities of first choice, some
students who don’t make it might still be redistributed to
“When they write the post-UTME in the schools of their
first choices, they may wish to consider the other places
we have taken them to for admissions.
”The reason is that if they don’t get admission in their
first choices institution, they will get in the second.”
“JAMB’s effort in redistributing candidates was only
geared towards helping candidates of over-subscribed
institutions gain admission to other federal or state
universities rather than wasting their scores.”
