The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has set the the minimum cut-off mark for admissions into universities at 120.

This followed the conclusion of the combined policy meeting which had Vice Chancellors, Rectors and Provosts of higher institutions as well as other stake holders in attendance.

The minimum cut off marks for polytechnics and colleges of education was set at 100 while that of innovative enterprising institutes was set at 110.

It was also decided at the meeting that admission into first choice universities should close on October 15 while December 15, 2017 was set as the closing date for second choice admission by institutions.

Also, admissions into public degree awarding institutions for the 2017 UTME examination will end on January 15, 2018 while for private institutions, it ends on January 31, 2018.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said institutions, with the decision, are not to go below the minimum cut-off points adopted at the meeting for admissions.

He called for the adoption of flexible cut-off marks for admission processes by higher institutions in the country.

According to him, “What JAMB has done is to recommend; We will only determine the minimum, whatever you determine as your admission cut-off mark is your decision.

“The Senate and academic boards of universities should be allowed to determine their cut-off marks.”He said.

“The admission process is now automated with direct involvement of the registrar of JAMB for final approval.

“We have agreed to regularize admissions that were done under the table this year. From next year we will not accept anything like that.”

On the other hand, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu stated that the cancellation on post-UTME was a mistake and said institutions are now at liberty to conduct, while adding that fee for the examination should not exceed N2000.

AbuUbayy; CLARIFICATION ON THE NEW JAMB MINIMUM ADMISSION SCORE
By Abu Ubayy.
Social media went agog and students felt relieved as Jamb pegs cut off mark for tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
What should be noted from the statement made by the Jamb's Registrar, Professor Ishaaq Oloyede is: “What JAMB has done is to recommend; we will only determine the minimum, whatever you determine as your admission cut-off mark is your decision.
“The Senate and academic boards of universities should be allowed to determine their cut-off marks.” He stated further that
“The admission process is now automated with direct involvement of the registrar of JAMB for final approval.
“We have agreed to regularize admissions that were done under the table this year. From next year, we will not accept anything like that.”
From the above statements, it is clear that students who scored above 100 in the just concluded UTME might be admitted by their preferred institution if they are satisfied with their scores.
This however doesn't mean that institutions can no longer set their cut off marks.

fortuneehinomen; Not all institutions will follow this mark. They have their own departmental cut off mark but the mark should not be lower than 120, that is what they are saying.

Cut off Mark absolutely has nothing to do with people's intellectual, jam is a time wasting, in civilised country there is nothing like that, after secondary school examination people write direct matric. Despite 280 cut off Mark did Nigerian universities make any difference in world education level? No. If you were able to make it when cut off Mark was 280 do not make you look more intelligent than those of tomorrow sir. Education systems in Nigeria are very poor.

People will always keep complaining and if u check the records of those complaints u will be amused to realise that without cheating they can't even score up to 100 in jamb, but they will come out and criticise a welcome development that will push the nation to the next level, and if I may draw ur attention to the picture and story of the unn best graduating student that went viral. For the records she sat for jamb to study medicine in unn and she couldn't make the cut off marks and she had to settle for a lower medical course and then later in her 200l transited to proper medical course she really wanted. Note that she didn't make jamb to study medicine but she ended up graduating as the best medical student..... I know many brilliant persons that jamb didn't favour due to the high cut of Mark. For me this is a welcome development that will give many the opportunity to pursue their aspirations...

buta2E; You be wise man tell them
22-Aug-2017 23:19:02 ·
Uche Sir.Famous; They dnt seems to understand
23-Aug-2017 02:01:15 ·
landlord4all; [email protected] any student that cannot score above 200 in jamb is not even suppose to be in the university. and you are talking of cheating. how can a student cheat with CBT? are the questions not from the text books? brains are not the same. if you cannot meet up with your pals,,, try harder next time. 120 bench mark is too low my man. is juts too low. me i was thinking they will increase it to 200. at least average for Nigerian universities to go higher than our neighbour.
23-Aug-2017 06:03:33 ·
Liberatorkingpin; This not it it won't guarantee transparency when it's just few thousands people don't still gain admission and not to talk of now that it's in millions,that will be heart wrecking you know
23-Aug-2017 07:28:33 ·
Uche Sir.Famous; @ landlord4all i hope u dnt knw what u are saying anyways u are still a child , u will understand when u grow, i understand that you are now wiser that the profs, VCs and rectors of nigerian institution and i will say it again Cut off Mark absolutely has nothing to do with people's intellectual, jam is a time wasting, in civilised country there is nothing like that, after secondary school examination people write direct matric. Despite 280 cut off Mark did Nigerian universities make any difference in world education level? No. If you were able to make it when cut off Mark was 280 do not make you look more intelligent than those of tomorrow sir. Education systems in Nigeria are very poor.
23-Aug-2017 08:40:58 ·
Abidooo; Frankly speaking 130 is too small Ahah! 30% the reason why those profs agreed with this was just to make more money cos pume can be conducted now
23-Aug-2017 22:05:07 ·
Godwill1132; Hey! Landlord jamb is NT d true test of someone intelligent,dnt tell me dat if a person didn't score up to 200 in jamb d person isn't suppose to b in higher institution,it might be due to some circumstances that d person scored dat score,and their AR those dat may score 400 bt they AR nt better than those dat score blow 200 in jamb.just gt it in faculty

Uche Sir.Famous says;
This is a welcome development if jamb cut-off mark can be b/t 100-200 it will reduce exam-malp, bcos any student that write jamb and score b/t 100-200 without cheating must be a brilliant student.

Uche Sir.Famous; U cant do anything about it o
23-Aug-2017 02:03:07 ·
korex003; Famous. I hope you recall that even when the cut off mark was 180, the top schools did not admit Up to 20% of the students who were qualified
23-Aug-2017 02:13:56 ·
Ak Fejiro; I know i get do anything abt it but skuls can. Didn't u read d part that d minimum cut off is 120 not maximum. The skuls have a right to choose dier cut off mark.
So if i were u i wudnt bother rejoicing abt it
There was a year wen jamb recorded mass failure n appealed to all skuls both federal n state uni to make dier cut off 180.
Top skuls lyk uniben, unilag n other top uni didn't bother changing diers.
If they did it den why do u think dey wil succumb to a mark much lower Dan 180.
23-Aug-2017 08:00:39 ·
segelulu; Pls where can I get post utme past questions for unilorin
23-Aug-2017 08:11:42 ·
Uche Sir.Famous; Ak Fejiro which year was that and i will say it again Cut off Mark absolutely has nothing to do with people's intellectual, jam is a time wasting, in civilised country there is nothing like that, after secondary school examination people write direct matric. Despite 280 cut off Mark did Nigerian universities make any difference in world education level? No. If you were able to make it when cut off Mark was 280 do not make you look more intelligent than those of tomorrow sir. Education systems in Nigeria are very poor.

Shagzzy; I don't tink so maybe u shud ask
22-Aug-2017 20:46:43 ·
Ahmod-Ishaq Abdulmujeeb; Yes, you can. You can change any of your data which you have incorrectly uploaded in the curse of registration. Just thesame way for any of your data you want to change you will have to pay for the JAMB's data correction at any of the JAMB's offices or a registered CBT center.
