In the meeting, the JAMB Registrar gave statistics of 2019 Admission and what he revealed was shocking.

2019 Admission Statistics.

He revealed that tertiary institutions had the capacity (Quota) to admit 1,123,514 students but only 612,5579 candidates were admitted leaving 510,957 vacancy. Now the big question is “why the vacancies (wide gap) & yet some candidates are still not admitted?”

You should check out the few images below for details:

  • ‘Admitted’ candidates who did not choose the Academy as first choice. How?

Why Candidates Should Not Register for both UTME and Direct Entry

  • A candidate registered for both UTME and DE
  • During scrutiny of admission, JAMB realized that a particular
    candidate was jumped and not recommended
  • On investigation, it was discovered that the candidate had
    been offered admission through DE
  • The candidate was invited to JAMB HQs and confronted with facts
  • He accepted the error (by claiming ignorance) and tendered
    an unreserved apology
  • The UTME application was cancelled

Reasons Candidates Were Not Admitted.

One of the main reasons why some candidates were not admitted was because most of them chose few programmes. This is what JAMB referred “over subscription of few Programmes”

JAMB Policy Meeting

Other Causatives of Non-Admission Includes:

  1. Wrong O’ Level subject combination
  2. Low (Post UTME) screening score
  3. UTME-combination deficiency
  4. Non-acceptance of Offer.
  5. Duplication of application
  6. Absent from POST UTME Screening
  7. Late change of Institution & Mismatch of Catchment.

  1. Cluster of fraudsters who had been benefitting from examination malpractice continue to forge the Registrar’s signature, writing fictitious news items that JAMB website had crashed and all examinations written were cancelled
  2. Again, they were mistaken. We are grateful to Government especially FME

What JAMB has Decided to do

  1. Partnering security operatives & relevant agencies on cyber crimes
  2. Engaging the machineries & sponsoring them in order to tap from their knowledge
  3. Movement of some services to the registration portal in order to prevent extortion of candidates

Additional Features on JAMB CAPS

  1. No institution would be able to move candidates into merit level unless ALL positive candidates above him/her are admitted either by merit, catchment or ELDS
  2. If any institution request for opening of change for programme or institution, it MUST consider all the candidates who have uploaded
  3. Availability of date of upload of O’ level credentials by candidates
  4. All institutions MUST provide date of commencement of admission
  5. Cut off date & Admission exercise can’t be earlier than 20th August, 2020
  6. No institution would be able to finalise admission exercise until after cut-off date
  7. Before a candidate can be moved or transferred to another programme, their would be transfer alert (notification from CAPS) to the candidate to either accept or reject the movement

And JAMB Admission letter.

Allschool Editor

Meanwhile we have sighted the Ghana’s Education Minister….

The cut mark for this year is yet to be announced. For now, the the Governor of the state hosting the meeting is giving his address….

Allschool Editor

And…JAMB has reintroduced Integrated Brochure and Syllabus System (IBASS) . This platform is to help candidates ease the stress of knowing requirements for a particular course in a particular school.

With this introduced platform, once you select your aspiring course, you can view their requirements and schools that offer them.

This platform will really help students make the right decision as to the best course that suits that subject combination.


JAMB has inaugrated IBASS. Meaning Integrated Brochure and Syllabus System. This is an online system accessible to candidates and tertiary institutions. Institutions can login to this system to change their requirements on the brochure any time if need be. Candidates can equally log on to the system state their requirements and the system will come up with list of institutions such candidates are qualified to be admitted. This will help candidates to easily know the right institutions they need to apply to or change to if need be.

Allschool Editor

JAMB Boss has reiterated that one of the main reason some candidates don’t rewrite UTME is because they do insist on a particular course.

If such candidates are given admission into that department, they seem not to be interested…

Allschool Editor

Still on the meeting!

You know before now you don’t need JAMB to get admission into some school’s programmes?

The latest now is that candidates of distance learning, part-time and sandwich will now go through JAMB.


The minister has pointed out that All Admissions in all tetiary institutions in the country MUST BE processed by JAMB. : He has re-iterated that this policy meeting must be fully taken seriously, and no admission must be done before the policy meeting in any year. The minister has stated that they will try to hold the policy meeting each year before JUNE. The post UME fee must not be more than 2,000 Naira, this time we are going to enforce it. The Admission Policy meeting stipulates the guidelines and modalities for admission into tertiary institution for each Academic Session.… Read more »

Allschool Editor

Most candidates makes mistakes while registering for the post utme. JAMB Registrar explaining the reason for this said: “One common reasons for wrong names in UTME is due to candidates using another candidate’s profile or ePIN to process registration.”…..
