According to the guidelines contained in a statement placed on its website on Monday night, JAMB said the modalities were going to be based on point system, Punch is reporting.

...
According to JAMB, the new method uses a point system to offer provisional admission to candidates.
It said: "Before a candidate can be considered for screening, he/she must have been offered a provisional admission by JAMB. The JAMB admission checker portal is going to be opened soon for this process, so praying is all you can do now."
The second process, it said, was the point system where admission would depend on the point tally of the candidate.
The statement said: "JAMB's provisional admission no longer makes much sense this year, your points tally will decide your faith. The points are evenly spread out between your O' Level and JAMB results to provide a level-playing field for all.
"In the first case, any candidate who submits only one result which contains his/her relevant subjects already has 10 points. The exam could be NECO, WASSCE, November/December WASSCE etc, but any candidate who has two sittings only gets 2 points. So this means that candidates with only one result are at an advantage but only just."
The organisation added that the "next point grades fell into the O' Level grades where each grade would have it equivalent point; A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks, so the better the candidates' grades, the better his or her chances of securing admission this year.
"The next point is the UTME scores where each score range has its equivalent point which can be summarised thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points."
Giving a breakdown, JAMB explained that each category would contain five JAMB results per point added.
For example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20 points, while a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points.
JAMB added that the point system for direct entry would be released soon. JAMB stated that fees would still be charged for screening which would replace the Post UTME test.
JAMB also emphasised that catchment and educationally less-developed state would still be used for admission into the nation's tertiary institutions.
JAMB said: "Merit contains 45 per cent of the total candidates for a particular course, Catchment contains 35 per cent and ELDS and staff lists contains the rest. JAMB said: "Merit contains 45 per cent of the total candidates for a particular course, Catchment contains 35 per cent and ELDS and staff lists contains the rest.
...
"If a school declares its cut off mark for Medicine as 90 points and JAMB grants a candidate with 250 a provisional admission but his/her total points falls short of the 90 points, then he/she will lose the admission. So the provisional admission is just a means to an end, not the end in itself."

THE Federal Ministry of Education on Monday in Abuja clarified its position on the scrapping of the Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
...
A statement issued and signed by Ben Goong, the Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations in the ministry, quoted the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, as saying that the ban was with immediate effect and directed all higher institutions to comply with the directive.
...
"The responsibility for admission into public tertiary institutions lies solely with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and under no circumstance whatsoever, should anybody or institution take over that responsibility by proxy.
"For the avoidance of doubt, any educational institution after secondary education is regarded as a tertiary institution.
"Therefore, all tertiary institutions, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education, Universities or by whatever name it is called after secondary education, must be subjected to admission through the JAMB."
...
The statement said at the end of probationary admission by JAMB, the candidates could be screened for final admission.
It said any institution with a shortfall in admission could revert to JAMB for supplementary admission.
...
NAN recalls that Adamu recently raised concern over the post-UTME test being conducted by various universities.
He said: "As far as I am concerned, if the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing, the universities should not be holding another examinations.
"If the universities have any complain against JAMB, let them bring it and then we address it.
"But if JAMB is qualified enough to conduct tests and they have conducted test, then there will be no need to conduct another test for students to gain admission."
The statement further quoted the minister as saying that there had been no empirical evidence to show that since the inception of post-UTME, universities had been having better quality students.
It said students were still being expelled on a yearly basis for low performance even as they gained admission through post-UTME.
According to the statement, Adamu is concerned about the plight of parents who spend fortunes on transportation and sundry costs just for their wards to gain admission into universities.
It further said that the minister was mindful of reported cases where some staff of tertiary institutions took advantage of the girl-child in her quest to gain admission into the system.
The statement said the minister had directed the National Universities Commission and appropriate departments in the ministry to communicate the directive to relevant agencies and institutions, to ensure strict compliance.
Adamu was quoted as having said: "Those who have already advertised for the conduct of the Post-UTME under any guise should stop the exercise immediately as any university caught conducting Post-UTMNE will face appropriate sanctions.

"In the same vein, graduates of social science and humanities will now be paid N5,000 monthly, a one thousand addition from the previous N4,000 they received from as state allawee."

Arowolo declined further comment on the development when journalists visited him in his office on Tuesday.
...
Olagoke, a catechist and head of Catholic bloc in the Iwo unit of CAN, said if Muslims were allowed to wear hijab to propagate Islam in schools founded by Christian missionaries, it would also be appropriate for Christian pupils to wear religious garments to schools.
...
"We told the government before the school merger that we did not want Christian schools to be merged with other schools to avoid this kind of situation.

The reader should please pardon me if I sound a bit preachy and personal this morning. With the Ramadan fasting period here, the reader, I am sure, will understand, if not pardon, my preachiness today. I will like to start with a little introduction of an organisation based in Kaduna of which I am the chairman.

Vision Trust Foundation, VTF, was founded eight years or so ago at the initiative, as far as I can recall, of Alhaji Falalu Bello, Sarkin Bai Zazzau and Alhaji Ahmed Dasuki.
...
I took over as its chairman when he moved on to advise the Vice-President.
...
VTF was also concerned about the educational and economic backwardness of the region as well as the relative backwardness of Muslims in all parts of the country.
...
One of the small but practical steps we first took towards achieving our objectives was to start a micro-credit scheme and a motor-cycle ownership scheme for victims of the religious riots of February and May, 2000. Long before then we had agonized about what to do regarding the use of unemployed youth on all sides of our political and religious divides to foment the kind of violence that had changed Kaduna from being arguably the most accommodating city in the country into one hell-hole of religious riots.
...
At the end of the workshop, we received about N5,800,000 (Five million, eight hundred thousand Naira only) in cash, cheques and pledges from Kaduna State government, the Vice-President, business groups, the British-American Tobacco Nigeria, Foundation (BATN,F) and individuals including the chairman of the occasion, Alhaji Ismaila Isa Funtua.

BATN,F, represented by its General Manager, Mr. Folu Koku, offered to train twelve youths on computer and secretarial studies at a private computer school.

As at last month, we had a total of about N3,500,000 in our kitty for the project, with the balance of about N1,300,000 still outstanding as pledges. Out of the N3,500,000, we have spent over N3,450,000 to train 112 youths (including the 12 sponsored by BATN,F) in computer skills in Kaduna Polytechnic and at a private computer school.

Needless to say, if all of us in positions to do something about society's problems can commit ourselves to doing so, the difference would be a huge, huge one. Our regular introspections and our little experience at VTF suggests that one of the biggest obstacles to solving our problems of poverty is not any lack of resources - these are aplenty at both public and individual levels. Rather it is the mix-up in our priorities at both levels.
This is why I am writing this morning as we begin the holy season of Ramadan fasting to appeal to Muslims and Christians alike to lend a helping hand to the VTF and to all organisations that strive to help the poor and the underprivileged to become self-dependent.
In writing this piece I will like to refer the reader, especially the Muslim reader, to one of the most profound articles that anyone has written in recent times on how simple it is to solve the problems of our society - if only we sincerely wish to do so.
This is the article written by Adamu Adamu entitled Memo to Umra returnees in the January 17 th edition of Daily Trust and reproduced last week-end in the Weekly Trust by its editor, Garba Deen Muhammad, with a witty but profound small introduction meant to hopefully prick the reader's conscience.
...
For the benefit of those who may not have read the article, Adamu did a simple arithmetic which was highly revelatory of how privileged Muslims, as individuals and as political leaders, have got their priorities mixed up by regularly spending both private and public funds on the annual ritual of Hajj and Umra even when such monies could be better spent attending to far more basic needs of their less privileged compatriots.
...
The object of his article, said Adamu, was to "remind non-first-time pilgrims - and by extension all socially conscious Muslims - that while they flew out in droves to perform the umra, a bigger umra at home was left undone".
The author shows how Muslims spend an average of over 20 billion Naira annually on umra when Muslims are "behind in all indices of development", and when it is said that giving succour to the poor and needy or bringing happiness to the afflicted is better than a hundred Hajj after the obligatory one.
...
If we do so we will surely narrow, if not eliminate, the gap between the poor and the rich, a gap which invariably turns us into each other's enemy rather than each other's friendly neighbour.
...
As far as the editors at these global media are concerned, if Unicef says the vaccine is safe - which a Unicef spokesman says it is - there is no earthly reason why anyone else should have any doubt.
Yet anyone even superficially familiar with the mysterious ways of multi-nationals, including pharmaceutical conglomerates like Pfizer and Monsanto, knows that in their pursuit of profit, it is not beyond them to suborn governments and even international organisations like the United Nations and its organs, including Unicef.
...
In our BBC story about the polio campaign a spokesman of Unicef admitted that tests on the vaccine may SEEM to indicate the contaminations feared by those who have expressed reservations about its safety.
...
In my article, I said the retreat was held in 2001 at the onset of the bank's problems. I have since learnt that it was held in January this year as a desperate measure to halt the bank's decline that had started two years before.
...
In my article, I said the family of Umaru Majigi to which the late Etsu belonged, did not descend from Dendo, the founder of the Fulani dynasty of the Nupe Kingdom.
