The examination body has ended debates surrounding the general cut-off mark for 2022.
Nigeria’s Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) alongside stakeholders in tertiary education has fixed 140 cut-off mark for admission into Nigerian universities and 100 as the cut-off mark for polytechnics and colleges of education. The decision was reached on Thursday, July 21, 2022, at the ongoing 2022 Policy Meeting on Admissions to Degree, Nigerian Certificate of Education (NCE) and National Diploma (ND) in the International Conference Centre, Abuja.
Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, who chairs the meeting warned tertiary institutions in the country to desist from illegal admission practices, urging them to process admissions through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).
Part of the resolutions reached in the meeting allowed every institution the
“liberty to determine the minimum UTME score acceptable to it for admission. Similarly, for Direct Entry admissions, each institution will determine the number of points required by it for direct entry admission. Nevertheless, no institution can recommend or admit any candidate with less than two points for direct entry. In the same vein, no institution can admit/accept the transfer of a candidate for any degree programme unless the candidate has spent full-time, not less than two consecutive sessions in the institution.”
Further, decisions reached in the meeting insisted that
“no institution will be allowed to recommend or admit any candidate whose total score is below the minimum score proposed by the institution and approved by the Policy Meeting. The totality of all scores being used for the ranking of the candidate shall be taken into account in determining the percentage minimum score.”
