Candidates React To Jamb’s 160 Cut-off Mark For Admissions by skypper: 2:16pm On Jun 12
Some candidates of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) have reacted to the 160 cut-off mark for the 2019/2020 admissions process.

The candidates spoke in interviews with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Bwari.

Key stakeholders in tertiary institutions across the country on Tuesday pegged 160 as the minimum benchmark for admission of candidates for the 2019/2020 academic year.

The decision was reached at a Joint 19th Policy Meeting on Admissions to tertiary institutions in Nigeria, organised by Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) which held in Gbongan, Osun.

Flora Chikwe, one of the candidates told NAN that she scored 180 in her UTME and was glad that her score was above the cut-off mark.

Chikwe, however, expressed concerns in the admission process, saying that some schools would find a way to frustrate admission seekers with their different admission processes.

“I feel the mark is okay, at least I scored above 160.

“However, I am sceptical about the entire process because apart from the scores, you still have catchment areas and post UTME to worry about because these schools put such into consideration.

“In fact, apart from the JAMB cut-off mark, you have to also think about the course you applied for, whether your score is applicable to the course’s cut-off mark.

“This also varies from one institution to the other,” she said.

Another candidate, Musbau Adamu also accepted the cut-off mark.

He, however, expressed concern with the institutions whom he said, often take a long time processing the admissions.




“I pray that this year will be different since JAMB has given its deadline on the admissions process.

“I also pray that the institutions will adhere to the N2,000 post UTME fees as prescribed by JAMB. If not, that money really weakens some people who cannot afford a higher cost for the process.

“More painful is after paying and you still do not get admitted into the school. We will, however, remain hopeful though,” he said.

Similarly, Mr Ceasar Adams, a teacher, who also agreed with the entire process of admissions by education stakeholders, said the process, if adhered to, would be transparent.

According to him, the cut-off mark for all the various institutions is a welcome development as it will give a lot of candidates the opportunity for admission.

He, however, advised that candidates must note that there was always a cut-off mark for the course they applied for and pray that it favoured them.

He said: “For instance, I know that the cut-off mark for science courses like medicine or pharmacy would not be anything less than 200 in most of the universities.

“So those in that area who have less than 200 cannot jubilate over the 160 mark but it is our prayer that a higher percentage of candidates are admitted into all institutions this year,” he said.

The tertiary education stakeholders also unanimously agreed to carry out admission registration procedures for institutions of first choice of candidates in all public universities from Aug. 21 to Nov. 16.

They also agreed that all state and private universities would peg minimum admission benchmark on 140 and above.

Yet no visible improvement in educational sector, nothing pains me like seeing science students esp. In yr1 being grouped by 20students set of apparatus

It's minimum cutoff that means you can't go lower than 160 but can go higher than 250 if you want. We need to understand simple grammar

So jamb is even deliberately lowering the standard of education. I wonder what education policy makers are doing if not addressing this drop in standard.

So a student writes an exam over 400 and scores 160 but fails 240 and is deemed to have passed?

We all are not considering the resultant effect of this. Definitely universities will also have to Lower their standards (which is already happening) to accommodate students that are obviously below average.

I tell you the truth these students are deliberately lazy knowing jamb cutoff mark is below 200. I was speaking to 2 candidates that had not even touched their books 1 week to exam day and they were so nonchalant.

But when it comes to pressing of phone and reciting Olamide's entire Album verbatim, they would turn to Albert Einstein.

State of emergency need to be declared in the education sector because the continued fall in our country's standard of education is becoming worrisome.

Post UME ought to be nullified.
How can you struggle to make jamb, and institutions ought to make money now frustrate you through a meaningless process.
Re: Candidates React To Jamb’s 160 Cut-off Mark For Admissions by iamjavadem(m): 4:58pm On Jun 12
No it’s not. Have u asked yourself why people who score below the previous cut off mark of 200 always seem to get admission in Coutonu? And these people later be some good employees.
