Joint Admissions Matriculations Examination Board Replies El-Rufai on cut-off mark differential

The Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) reverts to the governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai concerning the supposed preferential low cut-off marks enjoyed by northern candidates.

El-Rufai earlier on a television channel urged the body to stabilize the cut-off marks to be the same in all parts of the country.

Fabian Benjamin, the spokesperson of JAMB, does not give preferential cut-out marks to candidates as they are admitted by their score which is pegged by the school they applied to.

He added that the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) scores obtained by the candidates when they sat for it is what they were giving, and this is the basis for their selection as discussed in the policy meeting and mandated for the commencement of admission.

Mr Benjamin added that the determining factor is the number of people that applied for a particular programme or school. As this can reduce or increase the minimum score needed.
