The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has opened its portal for the 2020/2021 admissions.
Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s spokesman, broke the news to TheCable Lifestyle on Wednesday.
According to him, the development was aimed at enabling institutions to access the portal to upload names of shortlisted applicants for the 2020/2021 admissions.
It was gathered that all admission processes must go through the central admission processing system (CAPS) for approval.
Checks by TheCable Lifestyle on Wednesday showed that the portal has indeed been opened.
The JAMB spokesman, however, said the board has yet to begin the sale of the 2021 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination (UTME) forms.
The board had earlier warned the public against rumours that it had commenced sale of the 2021 UTME forms.
“JAMB reiterates that it has not began sale of its 2021 UTME and Direct Entry (DE) application forms, neither has it announced a date for the exercise,” it had said.
“The clarification became necessary following fake news that the board has began the sale and was urging prospective applicants to procure same from some nebulous selling outlets.
“The public is to note that the news of purported sale of the registration forms is false and an attempt to mislead the public.”
