The Joint Admissions and Enrollment Board (JAMB) says it has lifted the ban on some processes on its platforms to accommodate more applications from candidates who took the UTME before 2020.
The examining board’s public relations officer, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, revealed this in a statement made available to journalists.
He said the increased suspension, which covers students who wrote the exam in previous years, is to ensure that those who require corrections can do so.
It explained that the measure was necessary due to the need to avoid overcrowding in its computer testing centers and other associated facilities, in accordance with the existing COVID-19 protocols issued by the relevant agencies.
“However, it should be noted that most of these operations are only available at JAMB offices across the country. Additionally, since the Board wishes to maintain compliance with the COVID-19 protocols, it holds that 2020 UTME candidates who desire these services will only be served through the Appointment Booking Platform.
The examining body informed the students requesting letters of admission, interuniversity transfers, condonation of illegitimate admissions and other processes from previous years that will be restored as of Monday, August 31, 2020.
JAMB also urged all state offices to ensure that all clients comply with all existing COVID -19 protocols.
