The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) at its 2017 Combined Policy Meeting, held on August, 2017 in Abuja, are deliberating on the adoption of a policy whereby candidates of universities with surplus applicants for the Unified Matriculation Examinations (UTME) are reassigned to other universities with lower number of candidates than their capacities.
