The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board had offered admission to 200,000 out of over 1.6 million candidates who sat for the UTME for the 2018/2019 academic year.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the head, Media and Information of JAMB disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Lagos.
“We have so far offered not less than 200,000 first choice admissions to candidates.
“To this effect therefore, we are urging candidates to go to our site and check their admission status and those who have been offered such admission should quickly indicate by accepting and printing such offer as failure to do so will automatically mean the candidate is no longer interested.
“Candidates are to accept or reject all offers not later than October 16 as that is when all offers of admissions of first choice will close.
“After that, we will commence admission exercise for the second choice of candidates,” Benjamin stated.
