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 personalized 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 noted that the regulatory agencies appeal to them for approval of new programs and accreditation of programs and what they receive from institutions is essentially about admission and registration or accreditation of new courses or quota issues.

The JAMB boss said having been able to augment its communication with over 2 million students across tertiary institutions in the country it can apply the same to admission and accreditation matters related to regulatory agencies and tertiary institutions.

“With this platform, if NUC approves admission quota, it would be centralized in such a way that as soon as you see approved, everybody will see it and there is no need to write to JAMB,” he said.

The JAMB boss noted that the platform will improve the efficiency of all the operations of the board.

Speaking, the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, (NUC), Prof Abubakar Rasheed, said in the last 6 years, JAMB has built a strong relationship with regulatory agencies and institutions of higher learning in the country.

He added that the introduction of IBASS has revolutionized the admission process in the country and urged all institutions to make the best use of the noble innovation.
