2019 UTME: Over 100,000 candidates got varsity admission – JAMB
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board says over 100,000 candidates who met admission requirements have so far been offered placements into Nigerian universities for the 2019/2020 academic session.
Dr Fabian Benjamin, Spokesman for JAMB, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Lagos that the board hoped to utilise 80 to 90 per cent of the available spaces for this year’s admission.
Benjamin stated that the board’s projection for this year’s admission was to ensure that candidates utilised more available spaces unlike in 2018 where about 40 per cent of spaces were not utilised.
“We will continue to adhere to our admission deadline. The first choice admission for public universities commenced from Aug. 21 and would last till Nov. 16 and for private universities, it will be from Aug. 21 to Feb. 15, 2020.
“The second choice admissions for public universities will be from Nov. 17 to Dec.17,’’ he said.
