Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has cautioned competitors against tolerating any affirmation that doesn’t go through its Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) as any idea of confirmation not approved on JAMB’S profile page or offered through the CAPS is invalid.
As indicated by JAMB, there have been grievances from the overall population that three Public Universities have formulated a technique for “offering affirmation” to competitors outside the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) all alone assigned gateways.
JMB portrayed this as a conscious demonstration finished with the goal to bait clueless possibility to acknowledge different projects (courses) beside their projects (courses) of decision.
The board re-accentuated that the CAPS framework is planned in addition to other things to:
i. prevent institutions from unilaterally changing or proposing a candidate for admission into other programmes (courses) other than his/her chosen one;
ii. disallow an institution to skip a higher ranking candidate to pick a less ranking candidate;
iii. allow an institution to recommend a substitute programme for the consent or rejection by a relatively low-ranking candidate who is not likely to secure a place in his/her initial programme; and
iv. allow a low-ranking candidate on each programme to, on his or her own, opt-out of consideration from the initial programme and be considered for a programme where he/she ranks high enough to be considered.
It, therefore, warned that any candidate who accepts such offer of admission does so at his or her own risk as there will be no regularisation of any irregular or illegal admission.
The board added that appropriate caution has been given to these universities which are to promptly withdraw and desist from such illegitimate action and any of such act will henceforth be visited with appropriate sanctions
