The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has fixed minimum cut off marks for Nigeria’s tertiary institutions.

The minimum cut off marks for admissions into universities in Nigeria was set for 120, polytechnics and colleges of education pegged at 100, while that of innovative enterprising institutes was pegged at 110.

Institutions are, however, at liberty to raise their cut off marks for admission above the minimum set by JAMB.

Also, admissions into public degree awarding institutions for the 2017 UTME examination will end on January 15, 2018 while for private institutions, it ends on January 31, 2018.

Also, decisions on first choice candidates by universities will end on October 15, and second choice candidates will end on December 15; after which the remaining students will be available in the market place for other institutions till the January closing dates.

These decisions were taken at the 2017 Combined Policy Meetings on Admissions into Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria which ended on Tuesday.

The Registrar of JAMB, Ishaq Oloyede, said a Central Admission Processing System, CAPS, will be used to streamline admission processes among institutions, as it addresses challenges associated with the former approach.

Mr. Oloyede also said that Institutions could conduct dual mode system which involves both manual and the newly introduced CAPS.

He advocated a dynamic educational policy as related to admissions.
“All over the world, there is agitation for dynamic educational policy,” he said. “JAMB only admits for National Diploma, not Higher National Diploma; so why should we use the same requirement for ND and BSC, that is unreasonable parity.”

“We should not be sentimental in fixing our cut off mark; we need not over-dramatise issue of cut off mark.”

He said candidates’ applications to study agriculture was very low while applications to study medicine and health sciences increased.

Speaking on illegal admissions, he said the process is now automated because the Registrar of JAMB must approve all candidates.

“About 17,160 students were admitted without JAMB across institutions in Nigeria,” he said.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, also formerly announced a lift of the ban on the conduct of Post-UTME examination as a prerequisite for admission into tertiary institutions.

“Cancellation of Post- UTME is a mistake,” he said.

He noted that banning of post-UTME led to a lot of irregularities by candidates and some institutions.

The minister explained that with the lifting of the ban on the conduct of the examination, institutions are now at liberty to conduct, while adding that fee for the examination should not exceed N2000.

He explained that the 2016 admission process was a huge success, while expressing optimism that government is working assiduously to make that of 2017 better.

Mr. Adamu noted that government is also making efforts to expand access and ensure equality in the education sector.
He expressed optimism that a substantial number of candidates who sat for the 2017 UTME would gain admission into tertiary institution.

“Over 1.6 million candidates applied for degree courses, over 17,000 for ND as well as NCE,” he said.

Nigeria!
I weep for coming generation.
I was telling my friend that whenever he sees the chance to leave the country he should just grab it, he rejected he and says he's going to stay here with his entire family and make it.
Yes, making it in Nigeria is possible, but all odds are unfavourable.
Imagine, 120 as cut off mark for universities? Lord come quickly...

What the hell. Just 120 cut off for university? Nigeria is doomed. The level of education has dropped badly. in our time, JAMB regular cutoff for university was 200. And even with 249 no university will offer u admission to study medicine. Cut off 250.
This is so sad

Well I'm not surprised,


Because

1. Nigerian Education sector is doomed

2. The new JAMB boss just wants to drop history about himself, from being the first to remit 5b naira to government to being the first to reduce cut off to 120,

3. I know many universities won't comply with this e.g Uni-ilorin, Ui, Oau, Lautech, Futa, Uni lag, etc
180 last price, some will even stay @ 200


4. Either 120 cut off or 80 cut off, only 400k-500k out of 1.7m candidates that wrote JAMB will still be admitted, there's quotta on ground already



4. They Just want Universities to make money from candidates,



5. Many students would fall victim of this, because of ignorance,



6. There will be too much competition among candidates and that will be very interesting



7. Many candidates that scored below 180 now will be confused on what to do right now



8. JAMB boss is a scam

9. Nigeria is a scam









Lolz
... Lemme continue watching this year admission in 3D cos i won't be surprised if only 10% of those that wrote jamb this year got admitted





I wept for 9ja again

The Nigeria standard of education is still high, but there are now duller students.

See the gradation of the UTME questions over time, that's the high quality. But see the number of students below 200 over the time in percentage, that's the "dull" part.

We can't blame the high standard because there are more facebook and instagram freaks.

The questions are still harder, and that's the quality.

So that quota education will be justified.

The Cut off mark is not made mandatory to be adhered to by institutions.Institutions have the liberty to raise theirs far above 250.

It just doesnt matter!!

How true is it that this cutt off marks would work out? The truth is that the rate of ' long leg and i know person wey go help you' will increase. Sometimes those that struggle hard to read and pass are denied admission;while those that did expo are always favoured..
