The point system, which has been in circulation, the board said in a statement its Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin signed, is a mere illustration and not admission criteria.

It said the federal government had sanctioned strict enforcement of admission regulations and guidelines, adding that the admission of candidates into tertiary institutions is based on merit, catchment and educationally less developed states.

The statement reads in part, “Sequel to the recent workshop convened by the Minister of Education on the modality for 2016 admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria, the Federal Government approved the re-enforcement of admissions guideline recognised by law.

“This is following the cancellation of the post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). This is not the point system as widely circulated in some media. For the avoidance of doubt, the board wishes to state clearly that the point system is an illustration by the Registrar of JAMB.

“It is meant to demonstrate how a few institutions were using the point system to select candidates while some of their counterparts were subjecting candidates to written test.

“The illustrations are contained in a paper presented by the registrar and placed on our website and was adopted by the media wrongly as the 2016 guideline for admission.

“This is imperative so that the general public will note the correct process.’’
