The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), says it has begun automating admission processes.
Prof Is-haq Oloyede, JAMB registrar, said this in his statement.
He said that tertiary institutions no longer need to come to the examination body for
programme accreditation or admission processes, due to the newly introduced Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System (IBASS).
Oloyede said from January 2023, JAMB would refrain from receiving any physical letter from any institution or agency except through its IBASS.
He spoke at the training for vice chancellors, provosts, rectors and other administrative staff of tertiary institutions on the use of IBASS. The training took place simultaneously across the six geo-political zones of the country.
Oloyede explains that “communication between NUC, NBTE, NCCE on one hand and the institution on the other hand and in some cases with JAMB have been very chaotic and unnecessary waste because the institution will have to come all the way from maybe Port Harcourt or Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria to say this programme has been accredited or introduced for us.
“Immediately a programme is amended or approved by NUC, NBTE or NCCE, it is immediately transmitted to the institution and once it is transmitted to that institution, it is only that institution that will see it. And JAMB will immediately see it.”
