29 August 2013, 16:29

Abuja -  The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has concluded the first round of admissions into degree awarding institutions.

A statement from the board on Thursday said the board was determined to ensure compliance with 2013/2014 admission calendar.

"Candidates who made degree awarding institutions as their first choices or most preferred are enjoined to check the board’s Website - www.jamb.org.ng and print their admission letters,’’ the statement said.

It said the admissions were done from Aug. 20 to August 23 at a technical committee meeting on admissions into degree awarding institutions for 2013/2014 academic session in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.

Signed by the board’s Head of Public Relations, Fabian Benjamin, it said 109 degree awarding institutions attended the meeting while only 76 of them submitted lists of admitted candidates to the board.

According to the statement, the second round of admissions will be conducted from Sept. 23 to Sept. 27 at Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo, for admissions into polytechnics, monotechnics, colleges of education and innovative enterprises institutions.

It further said that all admissions into the nation’s tertiary institutions were expected to close by October, stressing that the admissions were in compliance with the approved criteria.
