The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) on Tuesday said the board would not interfere with the list of candidates forwarded to institutions for the 2016 admissions.
The board stated that it would rather remain neutral and avoid meddling in the process, saying that it would not interfere either by adding or removing names.
The Registrar/Chief Executive of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said these in his speech delivered during the ongoing technical meeting on 2016 admissions to first choice institutions at Bayero University, Kano, but e-mailed to journalists on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to Oloyede, “The 2016 admissions, will be as smooth as ever. The only difference between this year’s admissions process and what has always been the practice, is the policy that there should be no written post UTME test. All other processes should and will be as they have always been.
He said the guidelines also include the use of 2016 JAMB UTME results printouts for all candidates who scored 180 and above, adherence to subject combinations of various courses as specified by the Senate/Academic Board and included in the 2016 UTME brochure.
