The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, JAMB, has declared 160 or more as the national least cut-off mark for 2020 entrance into state funded colleges.
Support Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, reported this during an introduction of the strategy contemplations at the 2020 Policy Meeting on Admissions to Tertiary Institutions on Tuesday in Abuja.
In his report, he made the remark that 120 or more have been endorsed as cut-off mark into Polytechnics and 100 or more for the two Colleges of Education and Innovation Enterprise Institutions.
He clarified that the choice was taken after every one of the Institutions had casted a ballot and endorsed least cut off grades for their schools.
He made it clear that no University would be allowed to admit a candidate who scores less than the proposed cut – off mark and that some would conduct Post UTME and other physical screenings that will be added to it to determine the cut off mark
”Nobody can admit a candidate with a score less than what the institution prescribed. That is, those who voted for 210 can maintain the figure and not 209 or anything below 210.
”All those who prescribed less than 160 for universities cannot be accepted but 160 and above and the same goes for Polytechnics and Colleges of Education
”Every institution will have what it prescribed for itself except for those who prescribed lower marks and have to come up above the minimum mark,”
Oloyede further expressed that there would be no confirmations outside the board’s Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS).
As indicated by him, any organization that abuses the choices as concurred at the strategy meeting would be authorized.
