JAMB Cancels General Cut-off Marks.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, on Tuesday, cancelled general cut-off marks for admission into tertiary institutions and gave schools the freedom to set their individual minimum benchmarks for admission.

The decision was taken by the board at the 2021 policy meeting, which was held virtually, and chaired by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.

Speaking during the meeting, Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, 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 University, 190; Covenant University 190; and Bayero University, Kano, 180.

From the meeting they concluded every university should decide individually on their minimum cut off mark and stake holders resolved to allow education ministry on ending 2021 admission processes as they couldn’t agree on the date proposed for universities to be December 31st 2021 and January 31st 2022 for private universities.
