Following the recent announcement of the 2017 official cut-off marks of all institutions by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the board has equally disclosed the 2017 admission deadline.
According to the information, admissions into public degree awarding institutions will end on January 15, 2018 while that of private institutions ends on January 31, 2018.
Also, decisions on first choice candidates by universities will end on October 15, and that for second choice candidates will end on December 15.
We do not know at the moment whether these timelines are for all the tertiary institutions (Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of education) as the statement did not indicate that.
We do hope that JAMB gives clarification to this soonest.
However, going by what was said by the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Oloyede, institutions are to have a uniform admission deadline.
