Jamb Reduces 2013 Cut Off Marks To 170 by Testdabrain: 9:36am On May 15, 2013
I believe those that scored above
170 but below 180 will read this
post with lovely smile.
There will be no admission for candidates
who scored less than 170 in the
Matriculation Examination
(UME) following the decision of the Joint
Committee on Admission to peg
the National cut-off point at 170. However,
JAMB said yesterday that results
of 16,000
candidates out of the 22,395
candidates earlier withheld on account of
examination malpractices have now been
Registrar and Chief Executive of
Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, told
journalists in Abuja on Tuesday that the
national cut-off
points was jacked up from 180
last year
to 170 this year to reflect the
improvement in the
performances of candidates in the last
He, however, expressed concern
some states would not be able to fill their
quota of university admission in the
academic year even if the cut off
marks was to be reduced to 150.
He said he had asked the various degree-
awarding institutions to adopt a system
of differential cut-off marks in order to
bridge the gap between educationally less
developed states and the others.
The JAMB registrar said the differential
cut-off marks for the states which will be
lower than the national one
were yet to
be decided upon by the relevant body,
adding that in arriving at a
decision, the
body would take into
consideration how
many candidates sat for the examination
in such state and the performances of the
Ojerinde explained that in a situation
where a particular state presented only
731 candidates for the UME, there was no
way such a state could meet its admission
quota, even if it was given a differential
cut-off marks, adding that “it’s a
way of
bridging the gap.”
He also disclosed that additional 16,000
results out of the 22, 395 earlier
withheld by JAMB on account of
malpractice had now been released
the decision
of the relevant committee of the board to
release the results. He, however, said
those whose results are yet to be
will not get any result as the committee
had decided that the results be cancelled.
Similarly, Ojerinde said 6,000 scripts could
be scanned by the computer
following the inability of the students to
comply with relevant instructions on
shading of the answer sheets.
He regretted that parents have been
besieging his office seeking for explanation
for the non-release of their
wards’ results, and warned that parents
should not visit the sins of their
children on JAMB.
According to him, JAMB will now have to
charge N25,000 to the production of the
answer script of any candidate who
insists on seeing it.
“This particular script is like an art work
and the candidate wants result.
You can’t reap where you did not sow,
shading the
correct column is part of the examination,”
Ojerinde said, while
producing the script of a candidate.
