Jamb Publishes Step-by-step Process Of The Admission Exercise To Tertiary Inst. by domesifa(m): 12:23am On Sep 14, 2017

A. Introduction
The Board in the discharge of its mandate has developed the CentralAdmissions Processing System (CAPS) to automate the admission exercise starting with 2017 / 2018 Academic Session. CAPS will, among other benefits:
§ refocus JAMB on its founding ideals as a Clearing House for the Admissions Process
§ ensure operational efficiency
§ promote transparency, accountability, inclusiveness and equity
§ restore the autonomy of the tertiary institutions with respect to admission
§ expand admission opportunities
§ make candidates the Central Focus of the Admission Exercise, and
§ provide credible and easily accessible Data for Research & Planning.

CAPS introduces some innovations to achieve the above objectives, particularly the active participation of candidates in the Admissions Exercise. It is in the light of this, that the Board provides below the Step-by-Step Process Flow of the Admission Exercise for the education and information of general public and the stakeholders, particularly the Candidates.

Furthermore, JAMB invites interested candidates to participate in an optional Sensitisation Forum on CAPS. Details are also provided below.

B. Step-by-Step Admissions Process on the Central Admissions Processing Systems (CAPS) (Candidates should note, in particular, steps 8, 16 and 18 that require their Actions and Decisions)

1. After successful completion of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and release of results, lists of Candidates were forwarded to their First Choice Institutions

2. JAMB thereafter requested all Institutions to use the Lists to determine their respective Cut off Marks and forward same to JAMB ahead of the Policy Meeting and programme (course).

3. JAMB received and collated Individual Institution and programme (course) Cut Off Marks as determined by their respective Senate / Academic Board

4.Three (3) Representatives of Institutions- (Vice Chancellors / Registrars / Provosts), Registrars and Admissions Desk Officers were trained on the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS)

5. Policy Meeting was held with Heads of Tertiary Institution and Regulators to determine, among others, the General Cut Off Marks for categories of institutions, based on earlier submissions of individual Cut Off marks by the Institutions. At the meeting, which was held in Abuja on Tuesday, 22 August, 2017, the institutions decided that the lowest submissions from Institutions would also be Minimum Cut off Marks and these were 120 (for Universities) and 100 (Polytechnics, Monotechnics and Colleges of Education). It was further agreed that the Cut Off Marks as determined by each Institution’s Senate / Academic Board and submitted would be maintained and applicable for Admissiont o the Institution.

6. Based on requests at the Policy Meeting, JAMB requires each Institution to reconfirm its Cut Off Marks and Sets the Cut Off Mark and other Institution specific parameters such as other Admissions Criteria (e.g. Post UTME Screening) and carrying capacity on CAPS. This is on-going.

7. Institutions download (from CAPS) details of Candidates that meet the Institution’s and programme’s Cut Off Mark and had selected them as First Choice Institutions. JAMB additionally provides soft copy of the same information on CDs to Institutions

8. Awaiting Results Candidates upload their results to JAMB Portal

9. Institutions may conduct Post UTME Screenings for downloaded candidates

10. Results of Post UTME where applicable are uploaded to CAPS to obtain aggregate scores for the candidates

11. CAPS ranks and suggests candidates that meet the Institution’s Admissions Criteria as configured on the system by the Institution.

12. The Admissions Desk Officer of the Institution reviews the List of the Suggested Candidates and makes the decision as to which candidates to select for further processing. The Admissions Desk Officer generates a List of Proposed Candidates for review and approval of the Head of the Institution

The Head of the Institution reviews the List of Proposed Candidates as appropriates and push the list of recommended candidates to JAMB

The JAMB (Admission Officer) reviews the Recommended Candidates to confirm they are from those initially sent to the Institution; met the Admissions Criteria as advertised in the brochure and as set on CAPS by the Institution, including upload of and confirm that no qualified candidate has been unjustly denied Admission. No candidate will be considered without the upload of his/her O’Level and/or A’ Level results.

15.JAMB generates a List of Provisional Admissions

16.JAMB notifies Candidates to Accept / Reject Admission

17. Candidate Accepts / Rejects Admission on the JAMB Portal or through USSD or Short Service Code within 72hours.

18. If Candidate Accepts Provisional Admission, JAMB updates Admission Status and forwards List of Confirmed Admissions to the Institution

19. Candidate prints Admission Letter and Proceeds to the Institution for further internal Admission Processing

20. If Candidate Rejects Admission, s/he becomes available in the Market Place for further possible consideration for Admissions

Market Place Operations
The Market Place feature in CAPS provides flexibility for the Institutions to source for candidates who may not have earlier chosen the institution for Admission consideration. Institutions may specify various selection parameters such as UTME score, State/ Local Government, Gender, preferred programmes / course of the Candidates. The List of Candidates so selected from the Market Place are then pushed to JAMB who then notify the Candidates of Market Place consideration by Institutions. Candidate may Accept / Reject Market Place consideration, subject to a maximum of three (3) Market Place considerations at a time. The Candidates could also approach the Market Place to announce availability for Admission consideration from any institution or for any programme different from those earlier indicated during the UTME Registration, provided s/he has requisite O’ Level Results and wrote the required subject combination in the UTME.

Any agreement or understanding on Admission consideration between the Institution and candidate based on Market Place operations will have to be effected with a requirement for the Candidate to effect a Change of Institution on the JAMB Portal to be available for Download (Step 6 above) by the new Institution to follow the subsequent steps in the Admission Process. Notes and Important Dates It should be noted that: the existing window for candidates to change Institution or Programme in addition to the Market Place is still available through the e-Facility.  Institutions can download (Step 6 of the Admission Process) list of additional candidates who have changed to the institutions since the last download  Admissions of candidates can be processed instantly or in batches by Institutions
C: Invitation to Participate in Sensitisation Forum for Interested Candidates on Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS).
As part of the Board's efforts to familiarise the candidates with the Admissions Process on the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS), particularly their rights to fair treatment and active involvement in decisions about choice of institutions and programmes, a Sensitisation Forum has been planned with windows of participation: physical attendance at the venue, through online steaming, webinar and the phone-in segment of the Live Broadcast on the NTA Network.

The Forum will hold as follows:

Location: International Conference Centre (ICC),Garkiv Area 11, Abuja Time: 10am-12noon
Prior registration and confirmation are required for

(ii) Webinar participation.
The Live Broadcast on the NTA Network is to allow candidates watch the event at home from any location in the country and participate through phone calls to the dedicated lines that will be provided on the TV screen during the live coverage.

All interested candidates are required to visit www.jamb.gov.ng to register for participation, which is only open to candidates qualified for Admission consideration in the 2017 / 2018 Admission exercise.

I remember being a university student a couple of years back and the news comes to you that ASUU is going on strike. At first you don’t feel perplexed because you have no idea how long it will last and many students even see it as an opportunity to take a rest from the academic rigour. Not until months start counting and it starts getting boring by the day especially for those who go back home. They begin to pray that ASUU should call off the strike. But you could be always sure that it will take at least four months before your prayers get answered; well, I said four month because that’s the shortest ASUU strike I experienced as an undergraduate.
So while this strike is on, you don’t have to sit down there and relax or keep praying that the strike be called off. We both know those people don’t care about the youths. And an Adage says when two elephants fight the ground bears the brunt. Their kids are outside the country studying; trying to secure for them a better future, so they don’t care. The best you can do for yourself is to take your life is in your hands. Take the bold step and do something rather than waiting.

Well, I will quickly share few tips with you on what to do while waiting on ASUU.
1. Get Certified.
2. Get an Internship placement
3. Get a vocational Skill.

Let me start with the first, Get Certified; See, certification is the only way out of joblessness and the best time to get certified is now. I’ll tell you why; many certification institutes have discount for students, fresh graduates and NYSC members which means you have to take advantage of it; because once the discount umbrella covers you no more, you would have to pay the normally quite expensive amount professionals pay for certifications. Secondly, why procrastinate? If you have the means why not do it now instead of getting a new phone. The perfect time is always[b] NOW!![/b] You might never get the same opportunity you have now again. There are a lot of certification you might want to decide to get now; I’ll mention a few; Oil and Gas certifications like General and Advance HSE, NEBOSH and OSHA certifications will make you a prospect. These certifications are very important and they have taken a lot of people out of the labour market. They are relevant in almost any industry or sector and if you think that your course of study will rob you the opportunity to work in your desired industry, well, I have good news for you; there are oil and gas short courses that will avail you this opportunity.
Another important certification I will mention is I.T certification; you can get a certification in networking or programming while you wait on ASUU. This will not only give you an edge in the labour market it will also make you a potential entrepreneur. Well, I used the word ‘potential’ because not everybody realise this and not everyone have the desire to become entrepreneurs. Getting I.T skills have the highest possibility of making you an entrepreneur. What more can I say? GET CERTIFIED!! CERTIFICATION IS THE WAY!!

Second point is; Get an Internship placement; this might be a little bit hard in this country especially for those who do not have uncles and aunties in these organisations, but it should stop you from trying. Write a letter to as many of them that you have mapped out and will be willing to work at, send you CV along side, and let them know you would be willing to intern in their organisation without getting paid. Of course, you shouldn’t be after the pay at this point in your life; you should be after the experience and the opportunity that comes with it. Learning comes before earning you know. And as a matter of fact, you are still in your Learning stage. If you have few certifications already, it will boost your CV and increase your chances of getting the internship placement that is why I made the getting certification the chief point.

Well, the third one; Get a vocation skill is also important especially for those with the entrepreneur mind set. As a lady you might want to get some fashion designing, makeup or catering skills, there are several others though. And as a guy you might want to learn how to fix computers and phones or some computer software skills depending on your passion, you might even try the so-called ‘feminine’ skills I mention earlier or hair dressing. The trend is changing as men are becoming very successful in the line of businesses that was once believed to be feminine. Most women prefer the male touch to female. I bet these skills would certainly help you when you least expect.
