The management of the University of Ibadan (UI) has stated that the university’s cut-off mark for 2019/2020 academic session remains 200 as against 160 agreed on by the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) and stakeholders of higher institutions as the minimum cut-off mark for the 2019/2020 Academic Session.
In a statement by the office of its Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, the institution said: “For the avoidance of doubts in the minds of our prospective admission seekers, their parents and guardians, our alumni and alumnae and the general public, the minimum mark for any course at the University of Ibadan, and all its Affiliated Institutions, remains 200 out of the maximum of 400.
This has been the position of the Senate of the University since the matriculation examinations into Nigerian Universities commenced in 1978.”
JAMB announced on Tuesday that the minimum cut-off mark for admission into federal universities will be 160 for 2019.
However, many educationists criticized the cut-off mark, describing it as ridiculously low and a further indication of the falling standard of education.
