JAMB Announces Admission Deadlines For Public And Private Universities by johndik(m): 7:26am On Sep 09
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation
Board has disclosed that the first
choice
admission for public universities which
commenced from August 21st, will end
on
November 16. While that of private
universities which commenced August
21st, 2019, will end February 15, 2020.
In the same vein, the second choice
admission for public universities will be
from November 17 to December 17,
2019.
This was disclosed by the JAMB’s Head,
Media and Information, Dr. Fabian
Benjamin, in an interview with
newsmen
in Lagos.
According to him, the decision on
admission deadline which was taken
during the policy meeting with
stakeholders on June 11, at Gbongan,
Osun, remains sacrosanct.
He further stated that the Board’s
major
focus for 2019 admission was to
ensure
that candidates fill up more of the
available
admission spaces which was not the
case
in 2018 where over 500,000 available
spaces were not utilized in all the tiers
of
tertiary institutions.
Meanwhile, the JAMB CAPS portal for
2019
which will enable candidates to
monitor
their admission status has been
enabled,
Candidates are to check this link: 2019
JAMB CAPS Admission Exercise: How To
Check Admission Status for details on
how
to access their admission status.
Dr Fabian equally stated that the
attention
of the board had been drawn to
reports in
some quarters against the principles of
transformation of scores by the board.
According to him, in every selection
examination, marks of candidates are
obtained as raw scores and then
processed into usable scores.
This means that if, for instance, JAMB
examines about two million candidates
in
23 subjects, it is only natural that you
normalise these scores so that the
candidates can be rated on the same
scale.
“In the process of normalising these
scores, candidates who have scored
zero
in a particular subject can also have a
value
of a mark which may not be up to 20.
“In doing this, the psychometric
formula
globally used by all examination bodies
gives even zero a value.”
“If the raw score indicates that a
candidate has come on top in an
examination, after the normalisation
process, the candidate’s position will
remain intact,” he said.
Benjamin added that score
transformation
was not peculiar to JAMB but is done in
countries such as India, Kenya and
United
Kingdom.
