The era Tertiary Institutions visit the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board JAMB for programme accreditation is over with the coming on board of the Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System (IBASS).
Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB Prof Ishaq Oloyede said this at the training of Administrative Staff of Tertiary Institutions in the North Central Zone on the use of IBASS held at the Federal College of Education in Zuba FCT.
Oloyede said the decision by the Board to announce full automation of its administration and other communication processes to all its stakeholders, is targeted at eliminating bureaucracy.
He said from January, 2023, JAMB would refrain from receiving any physical letter from any institution or agency except through its Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System (IBASS).
The JAMB boss expressed hope that the training would ensure seamless communication between the Board, institutions and their regulatory agencies in addition to providing candidates with the various admission requirements needed from them from their prospective tertiary institutions.
In his remarks, the Provost, College of Education, Zuba, Dr Sule Mundi commended the JAMB registrar for the various innovations introduced into the test system.
The training on the use of IBASS took place in the six geo-political zones simultaneously and had Vice Chancellors, Provosts, Rectors and other administrative staff of tertiary institutions in attendance.
