The Joint Admission & Matriculation Board (JAMB) and heads of tertiary institutions across the country would have a policy meeting on August 31, 2021 to decide the minimum cut-off marks for 2021/2022 admissions.
According to the board, decisions will be reached on new cut-off marks & other admission issues at the meeting which will be chaired by Education Minister, Adamu Adamu.
Last year, JAMB, in collaboration with vice chancellors of universities, rectors of polytechnics and provosts of colleges of education, pegged the minimum cut-off marks at 160 & above for admission into universities, 120 for polytechnics, and 100 for colleges of education.
The latest decisions has been made known in the board’s weekly bulletin released yesterday in Abuja by its Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin.
Excerpt from the bulletin reads, “This (policy) meeting kick starts the admission process into the nation’s tertiary institutions. It will discuss critical issues emanating from the presentation of the registrar of the JAMB on the just concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) & Direct Entry applications, in addition to setting the tone for the 2021/2022 admission exercise”.
