Jamb Automates Curriculum, Admissions, Accreditation, Others
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced plans to automate curriculum, accreditation, and general administration matters between the organization and relevant stakeholders, such as tertiary institutions and regulatory agencies, through its Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System (IBASS). The JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, stated that from January 1, 2023, JAMB will not accept letters from institutions or agencies except through IBASS.

The interactive platform aims to provide seamless communication between JAMB and its stakeholders and personalize services to the institutions and agencies, while only JAMB and the institutions will be able to see any communication on the platform.
The JAMB Registrar stated that the Board spends a significant amount of time attending to letters from regulatory agencies such as the National Universities Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), and National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) as well as 890 institutions across the country, regarding approval of new programs, accreditation of programs, admission and registration, accreditation of new courses, and quota issues.
JAMB aims to centralize and automate this process through IBASS, allowing regulatory agencies and institutions to have immediate access to approval, admission, and accreditation matters.
Furthermore, Oloyede also mentioned that JAMB has been able to augment its communication with over two million students across tertiary institutions through its Central Admission Processing System (CAPS), and IBASS will be used in the same manner for admission and accreditation matters related to regulatory agencies and tertiary institutions. He hopes this will improve operational efficiency.

They urged institutions to make the best use of the noble innovation and emphasized the importance of digitizing all communications in the country.
