Following the decisions arrived at the just concluded 2016 JAMB Combined Policy Meeting on Admissions to Universities, Polytechnics and other higher institutions in Nigeria, the 2016 official cut-off mark has been pegged at 180 for Universities, Polytechnic and Colleges of Education.
This implies that no higher institution; universities, polytechnics, colleges of education or certificate awarding institutions recognized by JAMB will go below 180.Similarly, the decision to scrap post-UTME was taken. This means that institutions will no longer conduct Post-UTME screenings.
According to the minister of education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, there is confidence in what JAMB is doing and hence no need to conduct another examination for candidates seeking admission into higher institutions.
He further stated that universities that have complaints against JAMB should bring it forward for address.
However, the minister directed JAMB to stop demanding extra charges on other services rendered by the board to candidates which include change of course/institution.
