Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board JAMB, says over 100,000 candidates who met admission requirements have so far been offered placements into Nigerian universities for the 2019/2020 academic session.
Spokesman for JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said the board hoped to utilize 80 to 90 per cent of the available spaces for this year’s admission.
He stated that the board’s projection for this year’s admission was to ensure that candidates utilized more available spaces unlike in 2018 where about 40 per cent of spaces were not utilized.
Meanwhile, the board had distanced itself from a recent advertisement placed on what it described as ‘roque website’, urging unsuspecting candidates and other concerned stakeholders to subscribe to, ahead of the 2020 UTME.
According to Benjamin, the board knows nothing about such advertisement.
