JAMB Reviews UTME Cut-Off Marks, Tertiary Institutions to Determine Benchmarks

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Tuesday, cancelled general cut-off marks for admission into tertiary institutions and allowed the institutions freedom to set their individual minimum benchmark for admission.

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.

On the deadline for the closure of admissions, the meeting resolved to allow the education ministry to reach a decision as they could not agree on the December 31, deadline for all public institutions and January 31, 2022, for all private institutions.

The stakeholders also unilaterally approved October 29, 2021, as the deadline for the closure of amendments for 2021 admissions.
