Mr Oloyede, however, said admission into all universities would be conducted on Central Admission Processing System.
According to him, 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, however stated that institutions cannot fix cut-off marks below what the stakeholders decided at the policy meeting.
