The Registrar of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said the body would refrain from receiving physical letter from any institution or agency except through its Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System (IBASS).
He disclosed this during training on the use of IBASS for vice chancellors, provosts, rectors and other administrative staff of tertiary institutions. The training took place in the six geo-political zones.
Oyelede said with the introduction of IBASS, tertiary institutions no longer have to come to the board for programme accreditation or admission processes.
He said, “Communication between NUC, NBTE, NCCE on one hand and the institution on the other hand and in some cases with JAMB have been very chaotic and unnecessary waste because the institution will have to come all the way from maybe Port Harcourt or Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria to say this programme has been accredited or introduced for us.
“Immediately a programme is amended or approved by NUC, NBTE or NCCE, it is immediately transmitted to the institution and once it is transmitted to that institution, it is only that institution that will see it. And JAMB will immediately see it.
“NBTE will not see the NCCE work nor will NCCE see what is going on in NBTE. It is individualised to the issues of the communicators,” Oloyede said.
