JAMB Announces That No General Cut-off Mark Would Be Used For Admission This Year

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says no particular cut-off mark will be issued this year, as all universities in Nigeria, will determine what their cut-off mark will be.

This was disclosed during the "2021 Policy Meeting on Admissions To Tertiary Institutions In Nigeria", which was held on Tuesday August 31, 2021.

The cut-off mark will be a combination of scores from JAMB score, University minimum score, Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE) and practical as applicable.

The Minister of Education Mallam Adamu Adamu attended the meeting, as well as other stakeholders in the Ministry of Education.

JAMB usually fixed cut-off mark at 180 for secondary school students who want to go to the university, however, the reported mass failure in JAMB this year may have influenced JAMB to scrap cut-off mark this year.

Meanwhile this is a good news to all secondary school students who scored below 180 in their JAMB scores, as they will have a chance of gaining admission into the University.
