The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), alongside heads of tertiary education institutions in the country, has announced the minimum cut-off mark for admissions in the 2022/2023 academic session.
The announcement was made on Thursday by Professor Ishaq Oloyede, after thorough debates and votes by vice chancellors of universities, rectors of polytechnics and provosts of colleges of education.
According to the JAMB Registrar in his speech, the implication was that “every institution has the right to fix its own cut-off mark even up to 220 but no one would be allowed to go less than the agreed minimum marks of 100 for colleges of education, 100 for polytechnics and 140 for universities.”
The new cut-off was announced at the ongoing Policy Meeting on Admissions, presided by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, in Abuja.
The Policy meeting also called for the review of admission criteria to give 10per cent discretional power of admission to heads of tertiary institutions.
