JAMB releases list of 2019 admitted candidates
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, says it has published on its website the 2019 Provisional Matriculation List of admitted candidates who have been offered admission by the various tertiary institutions in Nigeria, in compliance with statutory admissions requirements.
JAMB disclosed this in its weekly Bulletin, urging candidates who have been offered admission by tertiary institutions but are yet to accept their offer of admission to do so.
“The list of fully-admitted candidates in all the tertiary institutions in the country is hereby published on the Board’s website. For ease of checking, candidates can visit: www.jamb.org.gov., proceed to menu titled 'students+', select the submenu 'check matriculation list 2019' option and search for their names by entering their JAMB Registration Number.
“There is a large number of candidates who have been offered provisional admission but are yet to accept the admission. A list containing their names is also on display on the Board’s website and such candidates are to immediately accept such offers by using the CAPS Mobile App downloaded from the Google Play Store.
“With the App successfully installed and accessed on their devices, candidates do not need to visit any CBT centre or cybercafe as doing so would be a violation of the work-from-home/stay-at home order in place in most parts of the country. Candidates should note that failure to accept such offers of admission on the CAPS platform would result in the forfeiture of such admissions,” the board said.
The board further warned candidates not to accept admission on any website other than CAPS as any admission not processed and accepted through CAPS is not known to JAMB.
“Alternatively, affected candidates who are not sure of their 2019 admission status can check for such from their phones by sending "STATUS 2019" to 55019.
“However, in the event of any challenges, candidates are to lodge their complaints immediately by using the online ticketing platform at support.jamb.gov.ng under "2019 Admission List Issue," it said.
