Admission 2020: JAMB sets cut-off mark at 160

Jamb (Joint Admission Matriculation Board) have set the 2020 cut-off mark for admission into higher institutions in Nigeria as 160.

The Board made the announcement earlier today at an online meeting. The registrar of the board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, further said that the cut-off mark for polytechnics will be set at 120 marks. He added that only 612,557 students were offered admission in the year 2019. He said “Out of 1,157,977 candidates who sat for UTME in 2019, about 612,557 were admitted,”

Prof. Ishaq noted further that candidates that are awaiting their results will only be considered when uploaded on its website. While speaking, the Minister of Education, represented by the Minister of State for Education Mr. Emeka Nwajiuba urged the board to consider candidates that have previous years SSCE and other qualifying results to proceed with the admission process.

The Minister said further that: “As major stakeholders, we must jointly come up with reactions that would realign our programmes to these new realities. while these reactions are being fine-tuned to check their capacities and capabilities to withstand the new reality, JAMB and tertiary institutions could take advantage of the current situation and consider candidates with previous years Senior School Certificate Examination and other qualifying results, to proceed on with the admission process. Whatever arrangement that the country comes up within the long run, will surely accommodate those who will be taking the examination when the opportunity to do so is worked out.”
