The way forward for admissions: the procedure for the new channels for acceptance by candidates

You will recall the current methods of accepting or rejecting admissions which are:

1. Acceptance by login to the candidate’s profile on any internet connection

2. Acceptance through accredited CBT centres on the candidate’s profile

3. Acceptance through the CAPS Android Mobile App.

However, JAMB has changed the method due to abuse of the process by some centers, institutions and candidates

The new method for accepting or rejecting admissions will be:

1. Either a candidate sends ACCEPT/REJECT on his dedicated phone line to 55019/66019; or

2. A candidate accepts or rejects any admission offer (programme change inclusive) with his/her fingerprint (biometric) at an accredited CBT centre or at any JAMB Office.
