JAMB Cut-off Mark for 2021/2022
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has approved 160 as the minimum JAMB cut-off mark for 2021/2022 admission seekers into public universities while 140 was approved for private universities as cut-off marks for admission into any tertiary institution in the country.
The decision was taken during the 19th policy meeting on admissions to tertiary institutions in Nigeria on Tuesday 11th June 2019 in Gbongan, Osun State.
The policy meeting, which was presided by JAMB registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, also approved 120 as cut-off marks for public polytechnics and 110 as cut-off Marks for private polytechnics for admission seekers in the Country.
While 100 and above were approved as cut-off marks for college of education.
The meeting had in attendance Vice-Chancellors of universities, Rectors of Polytechnics, and Provost of colleges of education.
Mr. Oloyede, however, said admission into all universities would be conducted on Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).
Mr. Oloyede however stressed that JAMB is not responsible for the fixing of cut-off marks for tertiary institutions but rather a consensus between the institutions and stakeholders at the policy meeting.
Mr. Oloyede stressed that institutions cannot fix cut-off marks below what the stakeholders decided at the policy meeting.
In his remarks, the Director of tertiary institutions, Federal Ministry of Education, Joel Ojo, who represented Minister of Education, said the outcome of the recent investigation of the UTME registration of candidates carried out by the JAMB was a pointer that the examination industry required a review
Mr. Ojo said JAMB Policy Meeting remains the acceptable forum where plans and programmes for admissions are discussed and approved to guide the placement of qualified candidates to tertiary institutions in the country.
