How Many Students Gained Admission In Year 2017/2018
Only 500 Hundred Thousand Students have Accepted Admission -Jamb
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed
that out of the 1.6 million candidates that the board recommended for
admission in the 2017/2018 Academic session, only about 500,000
candidates have accepted their admission.
This happens to be far beyond the number recorded in previous years.
According to the JAMB Head of media, Dr Fabian, the reason for this is
due to the flexibility in cut-off marks as well as the introduction of
the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).
JAMB Recommends 1.6 Million Candidates For 2017 Admission
The admission process ended January 25th, 2018. However, candidates can still accept
their admission on the JAMB portal. This means that the remaining 1.1
candidates who are yet to accept their admission can still do so.
He expressed optimism that schools will comply with the deadline as most
of the school have already completed their admission process while
those that are yet to fully complete theirs are at 95% completion
