USING ASSESSMENT FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF TERTIARY EDUCATION IN NIGERIA: THE JOINT ADMISSIONS AND MATRICULATION BOARD (JAMB) ROLE.

To achieve the aspiration and aims of Nigerian National Policy on Tertiary Education, it becomes imperative to ensure that only qualified entrants are admitted into the available vacancies in the tertiary institutions. Prior to 1978, the disorderliness in the university admissions system and its attendant problems led to the establishment of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) via Act No 2 of 1978, to conduct selection examinations into Nigerian tertiary institutions.Since inception, the Board has made several efforts to improve the tertiary education admission processes. These efforts have positively improved the views of the public, candidates, parents and the government of the Board. These efforts among others recently led to the re‐,appraisal of the post‐,selection examination which was introduced.This paper looks at these efforts/steps for improvement and the implications on the tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
