Do you know when JAMB will start giving admission to 2023 candidates? I guess you don’t.
In this article, you will learn when JAMB and institutions started distributing admissions to qualified candidates. I will also show you how to check your admission status.
When will JAMB start giving admission for 2023/24?
For the 2023/24 academic session, admissions are likely to start around August or September 2023.
This is based on past trends where the admission process begins once the results of the UTME are released and tertiary institutions have conducted their post-UTME screenings.
Timeline and Process:
- UTME Results: The UTME is usually conducted in the first half of the year, with results released a few weeks after the exams. Based on these results, candidates can start anticipating the next steps in the admission process.
- Post-UTME and Screening: After the UTME results are out, individual institutions announce their Post-UTME screenings, usually taking place between June and August. These screenings are used alongside UTME scores to determine candidates’ eligibility for admission.
- Admission Lists: Starting from around August or September, tertiary institutions begin to send their chosen list of candidates to JAMB for approval. Once approved, these institutions can then start releasing their admission lists to the public. This process can stretch into several batches of admissions, including merit lists, supplementary lists, and direct entry admissions, spanning several months.
- JAMB CAPS: JAMB operates the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS), where candidates can monitor their admission status. CAPS is designed to ensure transparency and flexibility in the admission process. Candidates are advised to regularly check CAPS from September onwards to accept or reject their admission offers.
When will JAMB stop giving admission?
JAMB usually stops giving admission in preparation for the next academic session, which often means the admission process concludes around February or March of the following year.
For the 2023/24 session, expect the admission process to conclude by March 2024. However, these timelines can vary slightly depending on changes in academic calendars or directives from educational authorities.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) usually meets to set a deadline for admissions for all universities (public and private), polytechnics, COEs, and IEIs in Nigeria.
