its introduction during the 2017/2018 admissions exercise after
series of engagements with stakeholders, adding that the 2020/2021
admission was also not an exception.

The report explained that the CAPS had been able “to restored
autonomy to the Institutions with regards to admission process
,transparency, openness & accountability in the admission process,
market place to source for candidates, involvement of candidates in
the admission process.

“Candidates upload O’ Level results from CAPS, institutions also
direct candidates to upload same results on institution portal,
some candidates after uploading to institution portal do not upload
on CAPS. From 2021 admission exercise, no institution should
mandate candidates to upload O’ level results on institution
portal, Candidates’ O’ level results will be made available
automatically to institutions, institutions will have to download
available candidates’ O’ level results per programme before they
can initiate admission process for each programme.”

It also stated that there was need to review the admission
criteria to make it more accessible and inclusive for persons with
disabilities and foreign students.

“There is the need to review the formula to make our
institutions more national as envisaged in the inclusion of
catchment area in the criteria which has been so abused,
international inclusion of foreign candidates, it should be more
inclusive and inclusion of special needs candidates, more realistic
in restoring and recognising some discretionary admissions,
nationalisation of localised national Institutions.”
