Admissions into Tertiary Institutions held in Gbongan, Osun state on Tuesday, June 26, 2018.

“Firmer sanctions than those of last session shall be applied to cases of violation,”

JAMB at the policy meeting also announced the date for the 2018 post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination exercise.
