Latest on JAMB: No More Cut-off Marks For Higher Institutions
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has cancelled the national cut-off mark for schools.
JAMB related this to the public on Tuesday that higher institutions in Nigeria are now saddled with the responsibility of deciding their cut-off marks.
This JAMB decision was made at the 2021 policy meeting presided over by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
Daily Post learnt that the Registrar of JAMB Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, who spoke during the forum said some universities such as the University of Maiduguri proposed 150, Usman Dan Fodio University Sokoto proposed 140, Pan Atlantic University proposed 210, University of Lagos 200, Lagos State University190, Covenant University 190, and Bayero University Kano, 180.
According to the stakeholders, the 2021 admissions will be conducted only through JAMB CAPS and no institution is allowed to admit candidates without uploading their details onto the portal.
This might come as good news for some students who were not favoured via the just concluded exams.
It can only be good news if and only if, their school of choice decides to cut within or below their JAMB scores.
