The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has lifted the suspension earlier placed on the printing of admission letters, inter-university transfers among others.
The agency said with the development, “all requests for printing of admission letters, inter-university transfers and other processes for previous years which had been hitherto suspended would now be restored from Monday August 31 2020.”
The Head of Media and Public Relations in JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made the announcement in a statement in Abuja on Sunday.
He said, “To ensure that candidates who took the UTME prior to 2020 and who require certain corrections of their processes are accommodated, JAMB has lifted the suspension earlier placed on processes covering those years.
“However, it is to be noted that most of these operations are only available at JAMB offices nationwide. Furthermore, as the board is desirous of sustaining compliance with COVID-19 protocols, it maintains that 2020 UTME candidates desirous of these services will only be attended to through the Appointment Booking Platform which they could access online through their phones to secure a definite date and time for an appointment.”
JAMB said the need to prevent overcrowding at its Computer-Based Test Centres and other partner facilities led it to allow candidates to seek corrections and other processes only through the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination or Direct Entry platforms.
“Therefore, all requests for printing of admission letters, inter-university transfers and other processes for previous years which had been hitherto suspended would now be restored from Monday August 31 2020,” Benjamin added.
