The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has adopted a minimum cut-off mark for 2021 admissions sent by tertiary institutions.
The Registrar of JAMB, Professor Is-haq Oloyede displayed the new minimum cut-off marks adopted by the tertiary institutions at the 2020 policy meeting on Tuesday, August 31, 2021, in Abuja.
Oloyede displayed the minimum cut-off marks adopted by tertiary institutions at the 2021 policy meeting on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to the new arrangement, universities are not allowed to go below 120 while polytechnics and Colleges of Education, are not allowed to go below 100 for admission.
This means that there will be no uniform cut-off marks for the 2021/2022 admissions among the tertiary institutions.
The meeting agreed that the total fee for Post–Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination fee should not be more than N2, 000 with the JAMB boss, Oloyede, warning the institutions not to go beyond the pegged fee during the meeting.
He said: “Nobody should charge more than N2,000. The total gross is N2, 000. It is not allowed by institutions to allow candidates to procure administrative charges.
“No institution is allowed to capture or demand any result upload. It is the one that we upload on caps that we will send to all of you. The biometrics supplied by jamb should be used for the exercise.”
