JAMB’s New Admission Policy – How is this likely to Affect your Admission Chances in UNILAG?
As we know already, The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) at its 2015 Combined Policy Meeting, which took place on Tuesday 14th July 2015 in Abuja, announced the adoption of a policy whereby candidates of universities with surplus applicants for the Unified Matriculation Examinations (UTME) are reassigned to other universities with lower number of candidates than their capacities.
University of Lagos is already implementing the New Jamb Admission Policy.

According to the Registrar/CEO of JAMB, Professor Dibu Ojerinde, the policy foreshadow two benefits:
Jamb New Admission Policy
It will be beneficial to “needy Universities” that is universities with lower number of candidates than their capacities, as this will ensure that these universities will have more candidates to admit.
Candidates will have better chances for admission in the universities they are re-assigned to, contrary to situations where they would await admission in the universities of their first choices until the admission exercise closes and they forfeit admission in that session.
This policy has been implemented with immediate effect. Consequently, the eligibility for Post-UTME screening in the University of Lagos like other universities in Nigeria has been determined by JAMB.
In effect, only candidates whose names were forwarded to the University of Lagos by JAMB are eligible for the 2015/2016 post-UTME screening.
