The stakeholders also agreed that the deadline for closing amendments for 2021 admissions would be October 29, 2021.

The stakeholders agreed to let the ministry decide on the deadline for admissions closure because they couldn’t agree on December 31, 2021, for all public institutions and January 31, 2022, for all private institutions.

Stakeholders also approved the 2021 admission guidelines, which stipulate that all applications for part-time or full-time degree programmes, NCE, OND, and other qualifications must be submitted exclusively through JAMB.

Prof Oloyede said the candidate’s credentials must be uploaded on CAPS and recommended by the institution before JAMB approves and the candidate accepts the offer of admission, while JAMB approves and the candidate accepts the offer of admission.

He explained that if a candidate does not accept an offer, the institution can replace them after informing JAMB.

The guidelines that each institution is free to admit candidates based on its minimum score approved by the institution and the policy meeting were also approved at the meeting.

The meeting also agreed that each institution should keep its minimum score, as determined by the policy meeting.

According to stakeholders, admissions in 2021 will be conducted solely through CAPS, and no institution will be permitted to admit candidates without first uploading their information to CAPS.

Oloyede also revealed that the board will introduce two new subjects for 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME: computer studies and physical and health education, bringing the total number of subjects to 25.

Prison inmates, the visually impaired, and foreign candidates were also exempted from participating in the post-UTME exercise, according to the stakeholders.

“It is saddening that despite clear directives at previous policy meetings, some institutions still illegally admitted candidates outside CAPS,” said Minister of Education Adamu Adamu, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Arch Sonny Echono.

“I consider such an act to be a direct affront to the system, and those found to be involved in such a disruptive act will face appropriate sanctions.”

He stated that any institution that issues admission letters to candidates who are not members of CAPS will be sanctioned for such egregious misconduct and deception.
