JAMB Stops Remedial Programmes In Higher Schools0
Beginning from next year, remedial programmes will no longer be accepted as a criterion for candidates seeking admission into higher institutions of learning in Nigeria.
Remedial programmes are pre-degree courses taken by students who are deficient in their minimum qualifications for a degree programme. It cuts across all courses and departments in the universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.
The Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Prof. Adedibu Ojerinde, who announced the ban yesterday, said the cancellation became necessary to protect the integrity of admission process.
