The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the closure of 2016 admissions into all federal and state universities in Nigeria. The Registrar /Chief Executive of the exam body, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, who made this disclosure on Thursday, said that the board also granted an extension to admissions into polytechnics, monotechnics, colleges of education and private universities. He said, “All tertiary institutions and the general public are hereby informed that the 2016 admissions exercise into public universities closed on Wednesday November 30, 2016. However, the minister of education has approved an extension of two weeks (from December 1 to December 15, 2016) for all polytechnics, monotechnics, colleges of education and private universities. “All institutions concerned are advised to promptly process their recommendations to JAMB within the approved period.” On the 2017 UTME form, Oloyede advised the public to disregard all websites and social media accounts posing as sales agents for the exam, as only JAMB can announce sale of admission forms.
