The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has stated that the level of compliance by tertiary institutions to its January 25th admission deadline was 99 percent.
About 1 percent of the tertiary institutions were unable to meet the deadline though no reason was given for this.
Also the names of instkitutions that comply and the ones that did not comply were not mentioned. We equally do not know if any sanction will be given to schools that did not comply as this was not disclosed by the board.
Dr Benjamin, stressed that a uniform deadline became necessary to enusre that Academic Calendar is adhered to.
He urged candidates who have gained admissions into various institutions and are yet to register or do not have admissions by January 25 to begin making preparations for the 2018 UTME.
