The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) cut-off marks for universities, polytechnics and Colleges of Education for 2019/2020 have been released.
The 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) was held in April, with many candidates eager to know the cut-off marks after JAMB released the results.
JAMB Cut-off Marks For 2019/2020
According to JAMB, the cut-off mark was released after its 2018 Combined Policy Meetings on Admissions into Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria late last year.
Speaking on the matter, JAMB Registrar, Is-haq Oloyede, said institutions, with the decision, are not to go below the minimum cut-off points adopted at the meeting for admissions.
“What JAMB has done is to recommend; We will only determine the minimum, whatever you determine as your admission cut-off mark is your decision,” he said.
In addition, he noted that “We should not be emotional in fixing Nigeria Universities cut-off mark; we need not over-dramatise issue such as cut-off mark.
“In order to enhance transparency in our educational sector, no automated admission for those without the necessary requirements will be tolerated by the board.”
