The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) yesterday stated that the deadline for the conclusion of admissions into higher institutions for 2016 remains effective.
This was disclosed by the Registrar of the board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, during his address at the opening of an Extra-Ordinary Technical Committee Meeting on 2016 Admissions to First Choice Institutions which was held at the Baze University, Abuja.
He mentioned that some institutions were not able to submit names of their admitted candidates for approval as internal processes leading to the exercise had not been completed.
It was gathered that such institutions have requested for an earlier special date than the date for the Second Technical Committee Meeting scheduled for Nov. 14 in Owerri, Imo State.
According to him, the affected institutions are expected to make presentations of their recommended candidates to the board at the meeting.
