JAMB cancels general cut-off mark, tells institutions to decide their cut-off marks

JAMB has abolished the idea of setting a general cut-off mark for institutions. Institutions are now allowed to set their individual minimum cut-off marks for admission. This was part of the decision taken at the 2021 policy meeting which was held virtually and chaired by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.

According to the JAMB Registrar Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, 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 University190, Covenant University190, Bayero University Kano, 180.

In the meeting, the stakeholders also approved October 29, 2021, as the deadline for the closure of amendments for 2021 admissions. On the deadline for the closure of admissions, the stakeholders resolved to allow the ministry to decide as they could not agree on the December 31, 2021, deadline for all public institutions and January 31st 2022 for all private institutions.

This means that schools will begin announcing their Post-UTME sales forms and screening dates soon. The time to start your preparation is now. Get the official 2021 Post-UTME Past Questions and Answers of the various schools. Click here to get yours now.

The meeting approved that for Direct Entry, DE, the maximum score a candidate can present is 6 and the minimum is 2 or E, as required by law. The stakeholders also exempted prison inmates, visually impaired, and foreign candidates from sitting for post UTME exercise.

We will provide more updates concerning the outcome of the policy meeting in the coming days.
