Speaking in the meeting, the Registrar of the board, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, he stated that different universities such as University of Lagos, university of maiduguri and some other universities have proposed diverse cut-off marks, so the board can just oversee the admission process.

In his words, he said “Some universities such as the University of Maiduguri, proposed 150; Usman Dan Fodio University, Sokoto, proposed 140; Pan Atlantic University proposed 210; University of Lagos 200; Lagos State University, 190; Covenant University 190; and Bayero University, Kano, 180. Institutions have now been given the liberty to decide cut-off marks; there will be no cut-off mark”.

He however said, every admission will be done through the jamb CAPS, meaning the admission process will be strictly monitored by the board.

Speaking on the admission deadline, no conclusion was made as the ministry of education was given the task to provide the deadline for the process.
