These critical stakeholders include Heads of regulatory agencies such as the National University Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), National Council for Colleges of Education (NCCE), Heads of tertiary institutions in the country, and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), among others. The policy meeting on admissions sets the tone for any particular year’s admission exercise, formulation of admission guidelines. It also presents application statistics, candidates’ performance evaluation, as well as setting the acceptable minimum admissions standards for all tertiary institutions across Nigeria for the given year.

During the exercise, the Registrar will present reports on the just concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the ongoing Direct Entry (DE) applications while also analysing key performance indicators that could shape the policy directions of the government in the area of admission. Also, the meeting would apprise stakeholders of the salient issues that cropped up in the course of the previous year’s admission exercise.

In addition, the policy meeting would look at the performance of candidates in the current year’s UTME in order to determine the year’s minimum admissible score. It would be recalled that stakeholders had in the previous year agreed on the minimum admission requirement for admission into universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.

Furthermore, the meeting would determine the year’s admission requirements while kick-starting the admission process for the current year; discuss unresolved issues emanating from the previous academic year; and, at the same time, appraise the compliance of stakeholders with extant advisories and suggesting further amendments where necessary.
