It said this was in line with its flexible admis­sion policy which allow institutions to determine the suitability of the can­didates in compliance with all laid down rules and regulations as de­termined by the propri­ators of the institutions and approved by Senate of the various schools.
“The Board will ensure that criterion set by Sen­ate are strictly adhere to by the institutions ad­mission officers and no shifting of goal post in the middle of the admis­sion exercise. This is to guarantee fairness and equity to all candidates,” the statement added.
