Tertiary institutions may be prevailed upon to delay the screening of admission seekers for the 2020/2021 academic session.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and heads of all tertiary institutions are billed for a meeting today to discuss the possibility of shifting the commencement of admission processes to a new date.

According to reports, a date may be picked in September for the kick-off of admission processes for 2020/2021 academic session.

On the table for discussion, the meeting will discuss the possibility of institutions either delaying or prolonging their screening exercises to accommodate candidates who will be taking the 2020 O’ level examinations.

You may recall that in June, during its policy meeting at its Headquarters in Bwari, Abuja, the board had announced that this year’s admission would commence on August 22.
