The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has lifted the suspension earlier placed on services in its centres nationwide such as processes and corrections before the year 2020.
The board said in a statement by its Spokesman, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, that the move was to ensure that candidates who took the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination before 2020, and require certain corrections of their processes are accommodated.
Fabian said all requests for printing of admission letters, inter-university transfers, condonement of illegitimate admissions and other processes for previous years which had been hitherto suspended would now be restored from Monday, 31st August, 2020.
He however added that most of these operations are only available at JAMB offices nationwide.
JAMB had earlier shut down the services at its centres nationwide, in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, to prevent overcrowding and referred candidates to UTME and Direct Entry platforms to seek corrections and other processes.
"As you may be aware, the need to prevent overcrowding at its Computer-Based Test Centres and other partner facilities, in line with extant COVID -19 protocols issued by relevant agencies, led it to allow candidates to seek corrections and other processes only through the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)or Direct Entry(DE) platforms.
"As government continues to ease the lockdown leading to the resumption of students in exit classes, the number of 2020 UTME candidates needing one service or another at the various centres has drastically gone down, thus, the Board has decided to open up its platforms to accommodate more requests especially from previous years," he said.
JAMB further noted that it is desirous of sustaining compliance with Covid-19 protocols, maintaining that 2020 UTME candidates who desire such services will only be attended to through the Appointment Booking Platform, which can be accessed online through their phones to secure a definite date and time for an appointment.
The board urged all of its state offices nationwide to ensure that all clients comply with all existing Covid-19 protocols.
