 SENATE PEGS JAMB APPLICATION FEE AT N2,500

Jamb_UTM_CBTThe Senate has pegged the fee payable to Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) at N2, 500.
The upper chamber also extended JAMB entrance examination validity period to three years from one year.
The resolutions followed the submission and consideration of the report on JAMB admission policies submitted by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND, Senator Binta Masi Garba.
The upper chamber also said that its relevant committees should work to ensure the amendment of JAMB Act to reflect resolutions.
The Senate adopted the recommendation of its committee that JAMB fee should not exceed N2,500, while institution and course forms and all other incidental activities around the examination should be free.
The Senate on November 17, 2015 adopted a resolution and directed its committee on tertiary institutions and TETFund to inquire into circumstances surrounding the new JAMB policy including allegations of favouritism as well as review of JAMB admission.
The new JAMB policy entails that a candidate will make a choice of one university, one polytechnic and one college of education and then sit for a computer based test (CBT) to gain admission into any tertiary institution in the country.
