The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the automation of curriculum, accreditation admission, and general administration matters between the board, tertiary institutions and their regulatory agencies.
This is through its Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System (IBASS).
JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, who disclosed this at a meeting with regulatory agencies and tertiary institutions from the North and Southern regions, said from January 1, 2023, the board will not receive any letter from any institution or agency except through IBASS.
Oloyede noted that IBASS will ensure seamless communication between JAMB, institutions and their regulatory agencies without the use of letter writing as the practice has been.
According to him, the automation of curriculum, accreditation and general administration matters among JAMB, regulatory agencies and Institutions will provide personalised services to the institutions and agencies as only JAMB and the institution will be able to see any communication on the platform.
“We discovered that we spend our time attending to letters from some major stakeholders of the board and the major stakeholders are essentially regulatory agencies: NUC, NBTE and NCCE. Apart from these stakeholders, we also receive from 890 institutions across the country.
He added that introduction of IBASS has revolutionised the admission process in the country and urged all institutions to make the best use of the noble innovation.
