JAMB Warns Tertiary Institutions Against Changing Candidates’ Courses. According to Oloyede, the warning was delivered in compliance with the Board’s policy, which states that candidates’ choices for certain programs or courses may not be adjusted until the candidate specifies differently.

“The Registrar’s comments were intended to explain certain institutions’ request that JAMB allow them to move candidates from one course to another within the institution’s CAPS at no additional expense to the students,” according to the bulletin.

“It was also to emphasize how difficult it is to transfer candidates from one program to another, and that not all candidates moved through the Change of Program platform will show on CAPS.”

The Registrar described how CAPS works, stating that the transfer procedure is automated on CAPS and can only be completed with the candidate’s consent or acceptance.

“He contends that this avoids inappropriate removal of qualified candidates from a course to create place for unqualified candidates.” Transfer candidates, on the other hand, would not appear on new programs unless the transfer was approved by the candidates in question.

“Waiving the necessity of obtaining the applicants’ consent or acceptance would be a breach of the Board’s existing rules and regulations, as well as a danger of litigation and admissions duplication,” he said.

“Taking the COHEADS through the process,” Prof. Oloyede stated, “there will be a Transfer Alert (notice from CAPS) to the applicant to either ACCEPT or REJECT the movement before a candidate may be moved or transferred to another program.”

“If an applicant selects YES, the candidate will be moved to the new program and must be admitted.” Furthermore, the candidate would be called at the time of admission to amend his or her program in order to print his or her Letter of Admission.

“However, if the candidate presses NO or keeps mute (no reaction), he or she is locked within the program chosen and cannot be moved.” According to Prof. Oloyede, the legislation “is consistent with the Board’s policy, which precludes applicants’ preferences for certain programs or courses from being tempered unless the candidate says otherwise.”
