Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) says over 100,000 candidates who wrote the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), have been offered admission into public universities for the 2020/2021 academic session.
Jamb spokesman, Doctor Fabian Benjamin, who made this known, says the ongoing first choice admission by public universities which began last August 21, is scheduled to end on November 16.
The second choice candidates, according to him, will be admitted by public universities between November 17 and December 17.
For the private universities, they began admission last August 21 and will close it on February 15, 2020.
Benjamin explains that the target of JAMB for the ongoing admission exercise is to fill 80 to 90 per cent of the available spaces in universities for the 2020/2021 academic session.
