The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Is-haq Oloyede, has revealed that with the introduction of the Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System (IBASS), there will be no need for tertiary institutions to come to the board for programme accreditation or admission processes.

While noting that in the past, institutions had to travel down to the office to brief them on the status of their programmes and accreditation status, Oloyede disclosed that from January 2023, JAMB would no longer receive any physical letter from any institution or agency except through its IBASS.

The registrar disclosed this on Monday at the training on the use of the Interactive Brochure and Syllabus System (IBASS) which was simultaneously held in the six geo-political zones afor vice chancellors, provosts, rectors and other administrative staff of tertiary institutions.

According to him, “Communication between NUC, NBTE, NCCE on one hand and the institution on the other hand and in some cases with JAMB have been very chaotic and unnecessary waste because the institution will have to come all the way from maybe Port Harcourt or Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria to say this programme has been accredited or introduced for us.”

“Immediately a programme is amended or approved by NUC, NBTE or NCCE, it is immediately transmitted to the institution and once it is transmitted to that institution, it is only that institution that will see it. And JAMB will immediately see it.”

Oloyede added “NBTE will not see the NCCE work nor will NCCE see what is going on in NBTE. It is individualised to the issues of the communicators”.

In his remark, the Provost of the College of Education, Zuba, Sule Mundi, commended Oloyede for the continued innovations in their test system, and his initiatives in the growth and development of education in general in the nation.
