JAMB cut off marks: 160, 120 and 100 cut off marks are not applicable to some institutions, see here

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board ( JAMB) through its registrar, professor Isiaq Oloyede has announced the 2020 admissions cut off marks into tertiary institutions in Nigeria as stipulated and voted by the institutions themselves.

The virtual policy meeting which held on Tuesday, June 16, 2020. brought about this announcement to the general public through the board's registrar.

The long awaiting cut off marks has been released by the board prior to the prescriptions and votes of the institutions. All institutions were present in the meeting to air their view on the admission policy. All institutions prescribed and voted for the cut off marks which will be accepted by them in admitting their candidates. Hence, the board's registrar emphasises that nothing below the recommended cut off marks of every institution will be accepted for admission. He maintained that any institution that fail to conform with the agreed cut off marks will be sanctioned.

He maintained further that not only this agreed cut off marks assured candidates admission to the institutions as some schools will screen their candidates with exercise, oral interview and other physical evaluation.

According to the recommendation of the institutions the cut off marks for 2020 admission into tertiary institutions are as follows:

1.Universities - 160 and above, anything below this cut off marks will not be accepted for universities admissions.

2. Polytechnics - 120 and above, anything below this cut off marks will not be accepted for polytechnics admissions.

3. Colleges of education and innovation enterprise institutions - 120 and above, anything below this cut off marks will not be accepted for admission into the institutions.

Although there is exception to this cut off marks as some institutions voted for 210, and the board accepted it as their cut off marks but emphasises that 209 or anything below 210 will not be accepted for admission into such institutions.

He, the board's registrar said, ”Every institution will have what it prescribed for itself except for those who prescribed lower marks and have to come up above the minimum mark,” he said.

"Also, that is not the only thing that would be taken for admission, some would conduct post UTME and other physical assessments and that will be added to it to determine the cut-off mark."

”Nobody can admit a candidate with a score less than what the institution prescribed. That is, those who voted for 210 can maintain the figure and not 209 or anything below 210.

”All those who prescribed less than 160 for universities cannot be accepted but 160 and above and the same goes for Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.

”No University would be allowed to admit a candidate if he or she has scored less than 160 in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The board's registrar assured everyone that no admission will be given outside the 'Central Admission Processing Systems (CAPS)'. Hence candidates admission will be monitored by the board and any institution that breach the agreement will be sanctioned.

Candidates are advised to prepare for the next stage which is the post utme screening of the institution of their choice. I wish everyone of you successful admission into the institutions of your choice.
