Breaking news reaching us has it that candidates who chose the University of Lagos (UNILAG) as their preferred choice of study and score 200 and above in 2015 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination are currently protesting the New Jamb Eligibility Regulation.
An impeccable source disclosed to our correspondent that candidates who scored above the 200 benchmark cut-off mark that UNILAG has been known for are unable to register for the 2015 post-UTME and are alternatively told that their names and details has been forwarded to other institutions.
It was gathered that UNILAG will not be the only school affected by this new JAMB policy. Other affected Universities are UNILORIN, OAU, UNIBEN, LASU, UNN, UNIZIK and yet to be confirmed institution.
According to an unconfirmed source, JAMB has shortlisted 9,937 students (out of over 30,000 applicants) for UNILAG Post-Utme with cut-off marks ranging from 220,240,250& 255 depending on the course and catchement area
Many of the prospective candidates have declared this move illegal stating that JAMB shouldn’t decide other institutions for them when they have met all requirements for UNILAG Post-UTME.
It was, however, gathered that contrary to the old system where every candidate who scored up to 200 and who made a particular university their first choice would automatically be invited for the screening, a new policy had now been introduced by the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) which stipulates that such invitations would henceforth be issued by the board.
Confirm report reaching us has it that JAMB has shortlisted 9,000 candidates, out of about 20,000 applicants for LASU 2015/2016 Post-UTME.
