UTME: JAMB, others to fix 2021/2022 admissions cut-off marks August 31

It read, “This (policy) meeting kick-starts the admission process into the nation’s tertiary institutions. It will discuss critical issues emanating from the presentation of the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry applications, in addition to setting the tone for the 2021/2022 admission exercise.

“The meeting is expected to chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines and present application statistics, candidates’ performance as well as evaluate the 2020 admission exercise.

“The meeting, in addition to other deliberations, would take a stand on acceptable minimum admissions standards to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.”

It added that it is an abuse of process for any institution to commence any admission before the meeting as “it is this forum that gives this authorisation.”

Last year, JAMB, in collaboration with Vice-Chancellors of universities, Rectors of Polytechnics and Provosts of Colleges of Education, pegged the minimum cut-off mark at 160 and above for admission into universities, 120 for polytechnics and 100 for colleges of education.
