2020 UTME: No Candidate should be offered admission outside JAMB CAPS – Education Minister

Adamu Adamu, Nigeria’s Minister of Education, has stated that no tertiary institustion will admit candidates outside the Central Admission Process System (CAPS) of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

He advised candidates who are about to take the the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to stay away from examination malpractice and admission racketeering.

The Minister made this known during the commissioning of JAMB’s New General Services Department building at the headquarters in Bwari, Abuja.

He further said that the introduction of CAPS has revolutionized the admission process all for the interest of candidates, no matter where they come from, gender or social status.

“CAPS ensure due process, fairness, discipline, and equity in the process; it is through the automated system that ordinary Nigerians are now hopeful of not being denied the rightful place in the admission exercise.

“Permit me to make it clear that leadership of any higher institution found to be involved in giving admission to any candidate without the proper approval of the Board or outside the established CAPS would be considered and treated as corrupting the admission process,” he stated.
