Senate Pegs JAMB Application Fee At N2,500 by Brytawon(m): 5:41pm On Mar 02, 2016
The Senate on Wednesday pegged the fee
payable to Joint Admissions and Matriculation
Board (JAMB) at N2, 500.

The upper chamber also extended JAMB
entrance examination validity period to three
years from one year.

The resolutions followed the submission and
consideration of the report on JAMB
admission policies submitted by the
Chairman, Senate Committee on Tertiary
Institutions and TETFUND, Senator Binta Masi
Garba.

JAMB applicants’ currently pay N5, 650 to
obtain JAMB application forms.

The upper chamber also said that its relevant
committees should work to ensure the
amendment of JAMB Act to reflect
resolutions.

The Senate adopted the recommendation of
its committee that JAMB fee should not
exceed N2,500, while institution and course
forms and all other incidental activities
around the examination should be free.

The Senate on November 17, 2015 adopted a
resolution and directed its committee on
tertiary institutions and TETFund to inquire
into circumstances surrounding the new
JAMB policy including allegations of
favouritism as well as review of JAMB
admission.

The new JAMB policy entails that a candidate
will make a choice of one university, one
polytechnic and one college of education and
then sit for a computer based test (CBT) to
gain admission into any tertiary institution in
the country.
