Schools Admitted Candidates Who Didn’t Sit For UTME —JAMB by slayminder(m): 7:10am On Aug 29, 2017
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said that its 120 cut - off mark will put an end to back - door admission and other unwholesome practices associated with gaining admission into higher institutions of learning.
It added that it had introduced a Central Admissions and Processing System to monitor compliance with the minimum prescribed cut - off mark and other admission guidelines, as well as empower candidates to track the process of admission .
The Head of Public Affairs , JAMB , Mr . Fabian Benjamin , said this in a statement made available to our correspondent on Monday .
According to the statement , high cut -off mark is responsible for the flight of many Nigerians to “ glorified secondary schools called universities ” in neighbouring countries and an increased pressure on the naira to pay school fees in foreign currencies .
The statement added , “ The cut - off marks previously brandished to the public were never strictly followed by most institutions. Some were going behind to admit candidates with far less scores , while others admitted candidates who never sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination .
“ This act , to say the least , is very distasteful and damaging to our national data and identity . Unfortunately , the public has been kept away from this fact for such a long time and now that we are saying it the way it is and working to address it, the public is criticising us and using non - existing parameters that only announced and not followed . ’’
Adding that the JAMB would not relent in “supporting policies that would bring our education system out of the woods’’ , the statement said that it would pursue the quest to ensure realistic benchmarks for national development.
“ It is necessary to explain that the 120 cut - off mark does not in any way suggest that if you score 120 admission is guaranteed. Institutions will admit from the top to the least mark . It’ s also a known fact that for you to study a course , say Hausa , in Nigerian universities , you will need a credit in Mathematics . However in London , all you will need is a credit in Hausa and English . This and many other poorly thought - out policies have pushed frustrated candidates out of Nigeria to the developed and neighbouring African nations for education , which they could not get at home .
“ The issue that all of us should be concerned about is how to address the flight of Nigerians to glorified secondary schools called universities in Ghana , Uganda, even in The Gambia and other countries . How do we ensure that whatever we do has positive multiplier effects on other sectors of the economy , if we deny our candidates the opportunity to school in Nigeria ? , ’’ it added .

JAMB should stop giving flimsy excuses. The sole reason why they reduced the cut-off mark to 120 and reintroduce Post UTME is to make more money from Post UTME forms, since almost all the jamb candidates are qualified. This 120 cut-off mark will also increase the rate students bribe their way into university. It will make students lazy to prepare for JAMB exams

You say Nigerian universities?

How about the European, Asian and American universities exploiting our educational system and ready to offer you instant admission once you can pay the fees. They give admission to anything so far you can afford it

The highest they request is an English Test result!

Jamb is not serious.The constant strikes and poor infrastructures is what chase people out of Nigeria. Some of those 'glorified' universities are found in the list of best universities in the Wold

For government it's rare because they are made to pay money for Jamb regularization. In fact those running pre degree in most public schools made it mandatory that students write Jamb

The JAMB is right
But saying that universities should decide what ever cut off mark that suite them, will end up leading to mass failure of student for post UME.
My annoyance is that lecturers are embarking on strike as if even if they pay them they will still not impose textbook on student that they must buy or loose marks
Re: Schools Admitted Candidates Who Didn’t Sit For UTME —JAMB by slivertongue: 7:49am On Aug 29, 2017
JAMB is still aiding d fraud
how of the candidates with 120 will be admitted?
again the regularisation policy is responsible for the increase in the abuse of the admission policy
Re: Schools Admitted Candidates Who Didn’t Sit For UTME —JAMB by Nobody: 8:00am On Aug 29, 2017
The truth still remains that jamb is not a qualifying exam but a ranking one as Oloyede has said. You can't use an exam which test a persons knowledge in four subjects as a qualifying exam. A candidate who has his 5 credit is very well qualified to gain admission. We only need to ensure that the Olevel system has integrity.

The relevance of Jamb itself is debatable but we can still make a case for it because of the competitive nature of admission into public universities.

We should all be concerned about educational tourism into other smaller countries and liberalise the system which gives the universities more power to determine the admission of a candidate. Our universities are admitting far less than their carrying far less Than their carrying capacities yet we are still creating hurdles that would impede students in their quest to be educated in Nigeria.

Reducing pass mark to 30% can never be justified

This is just a way of admitting more unqualified northerners into Nigerian universities through the front door

Now they don't have to be secretive about it anymore
Re: Schools Admitted Candidates Who Didn’t Sit For UTME —JAMB by Nobody: 8:14am On Aug 29, 2017
This thing called JAMB should stop defending the indefensible, they made a gross-mistake and should simply admit it and apologise.
they introduced e-exam: people appreciated and commended them even with the errors/non-perfection in the process expecting them to grow
now that they goofed, everyone is against them; if they claim they made the decision in collaboration with other education stakeholders, why has none of them come to defend them.

That aside, i think this 120 is actually a northern agenda: No Southern institution (Not even the unapproved, private or one-building institution) will accept you, but now the northern school can take their northern students when they score 120 (30%) and use quota system to block southern student with same shameful score.

Who makes money from the post UTME exams? JAMB or schools? JAMB never supported Post UTME exams as they see it as universities competing with them

I once put forward a suggestion on how the admission problem in Nigeria. would be solved n somebody criticised it for not promoting national unity n coherence now I want to modify it,let the States be group by picking a state from each zone to form the group e.g Lagos,bayelsa,ebonyi,Benue,Gombe,zamfara.let all polytechnic be converted to colleges of technology with the right to award up to a maximum of 1st degree only,same thing to colleges of agric,education n the rest,while the universities should be sanitized n continue as they are now.let the students from states within each group apply directly to any school of their choice in the group n undergo a mandatory preliminary course of 6months undergo exams n then continue if successful, let the admission requirements be uniform nationwide, let the NUC be converted to national universities n colleges commission(NUCC),let JAMB be purely administrative n supervisory.any other modifications can be incorporated for improvement. all this processes of jamb,cut of scores,catchment area,educational backward States n so on are just too cumbersome n retrogressive.
