JAMB Gets Rids Of Uniform Cut-off Marks

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has set the fee for post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (post-UTME) at N2,000 only.

It also took on the minimum cut-off marks for 2021/2022 admissions sent by heads of tertiary institutions across the country.

The decision cites that there will be no uniform cut-off marks for 2021/2022 admissions, as was done in the past.

Every institution is expected to maintain its minimum score during the admissions.

These are some of the decisions taken at Tuesday’s 2021 policy meeting held virtually and chaired by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, at the headquarters of JAMB in Bwari, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, displayed the minimum cut-off marks adopted by tertiary institutions at the meeting.

The University of Maiduguri proposed 150; Usman Dan Fodio University, Sokoto, proposed 140; Pan-Atlantic University proposed 210; University of Lagos (UNILAG), 200; Lagos State University (LASU), 190; Covenant University, Ota, 190; and Bayero University, Kano (BUK), 180.

In relation to the new arrangement, universities are not allowed to go below 120, while polytechnics and colleges of education pegged their minimum cut-off points for admission at 100.

The stakeholders approved October 29, 2021 as deadline for the closure of amendments to 2021 admissions.

During yesterday’s policy meeting, stakeholders resolved to allow the Federal Ministry of Education to decide on the deadline for closure of 2022 admissions as they could come to a mutual agreement on the December 31, 2021 deadline for all public institutions and January 31, 2022 for all private institutions.
