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.
Actually when i read this news i thought it was an April full... But when i checked my calendar i now confirm it that we are in the month of August that made me realise that Nigeria is becoming something x..........hahah 120 university

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.

This just further makes Nig graduands of the future laughing stock. Whaaat? 120/400?
To read wetin nau.
Maybe for "the babymamalogy", slayqueenology", yahoo-yahoology, ritualogy"?
I know a boy who scored 199/400 in 1989, he just waited to write Jamb the next year.
That year, 1990, he scored 166/300 because Jamb cancelled English due to leakage, he still not enter any science course. Until 1991, when he scored 223/400 before he admitted to read his 2nd choice course having missed his first choice by 8marks.
Nowadays, scoring 200/400 is like "scholar".
I tire ooo





We voted for the north

We Have Not Gotten It Wrong, 120 Is The Minimum Mark Then Each Course Mark Will Vary, You Can't Compare Medicine Mark With An Education Course
Setting minimum cutoff score @ 30% is not wrong?, when the pass mark in the universities/ schools is 45% that's below. Students will now be less worried when they score low, and before you know the general performance becomes low, and the schools have no choice that to start accepting the low scores

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...
Lol, you don't see the scam coming. They need more people to pay for screening. The ones with the high marks or connection still get the admission. The ones with this 120 etc etc gonna sit at home bro but they think they can make it so they pay for screening. �

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

who should we blame ?our intellectual or the so called politicians? some of our scholars do not pass through the hands of ijamba of jamb. whatever it is the name. wole Soyinka and chinua Achebe do not partake in ijamba(wahala)before they become whom they are today. a student had been tested in about 9 subject with three different examination body. which I even called over burden and proliferation. this same student will still need to write and pass another four subject he already pass earlier. what a crazy system.

either 120 or 180. it is total useless. universities should be given autonomy to set their standard. students should be given free will to choose as much university they like so far they can buy the form. if not, Ghana,Malaysia and benin republic will be best alternative from this collapsed syetem

Nigerians and critics are like bread n butter...Why can't we just see the light at the end of the tunnel?? this is a welcome development, I wish universities will follow suit,Aside of the fact that the cut-off mark is low has nothing to do with the derailment of our educational system,Guys I think this will bring about high level of literacy in the country,imagine in developed countries universities are made very easy to enter compared to Nigeria where one would stay at home for years praying and fasting to study law n medicine.Well as for those screaming n gallivanting "During our time na 250" well the world don change 10naira for una time and 10naira now no be same again o..sha every aboki to it's kettle, I give thumbs up for the new Jamb registrar #Godbless him

“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.”

Of course since jamb will be the one to determine qualified students for admission. The cut off mark should be reduced to enable Northerners who score arbitrarily low mark have their way to university. If you are in the southern university sorry, the competition still makes the cut off mark very high.
