JAMB official cut-off marks for 2022 admissions announced

JAMB has approved the official minimum cut-off mark for 2022/2023 admissions for Universities, polytechnic and Colleges of Education. This was part of the decision taken at the 2022 policy meeting  held in Abuja and chaired by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.

For universities, 140 was approved as the national minimum cut-off mark for admission this year while 100 was approved for Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.

It was also decided that every institution can set its minimum UTME score acceptable to it for admission. For Direct Entry admissions, every institution will determine the number of points required by it for direct entry admission. Institution will not be allowed to offer admission to candidates whose total score or points is below the minimum score set by the institution and approved at the Policy Meeting.

It was also decided that all applications for regular and non-regular admissions to tertiary institutions must be routed through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in conformity with its enabling law. The meeting also called for the review of admission criteria to give 10per cent discretional power of admission to heads of tertiary 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 Post-UTME Past Questions and Answers of the various schools. Click here to get yours now.

JAMB also disclosed that the board allowed awaiting results candidates to register and sit for the 2022 UTME. However, these candidates can’t be considered for admission on awaiting result status. They must present their O’level results on the board’s portal before the commencement of admissions.

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