Prof. Tahir Mamman, the Minister of Education, will preside over it. Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB spokesperson, revealed this in an Abuja statement on Monday.

The admissions policy meeting establishes the framework for the admissions process and admissions rules for a given year.

Along with application information and candidate performance ratings, it also establishes the minimum admission requirements that are acceptable for all tertiary institutions in Nigeria for the specified year. Heads of regulatory agencies like the National University Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), National Council for Colleges of Education (NCCE), heads of the nation’s postsecondary institutions, and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) are among the important stakeholders that JAMB listed as expected to attend the meeting. Benjamin stated: “The Registrar will analyze key performance indicators that could influence the government’s policy directions in the area of admission and present reports on the recently finished Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the ongoing Direct Entry (DE) applications during the exercise.

“Also, the meeting would apprise stakeholders of the salient issues that cropped up in the course of the previous year’s admission exercise. In addition, the policy meeting would look at the performance of candidates in the current year’s UTME in order to determine the year’s minimum admissible score,” Benjamin said.

“It would be recalled that stakeholders had in the previous year agreed on the minimum admission requirement for admission into universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.
“Furthermore, the meeting would determine the year’s admission requirements while kick-starting the admission process for the current year; discuss unresolved issues emanating from the previous academic year; and, at the same time, appraise the compliance of stakeholders with extant advisories and suggesting further amendments where necessary.”
