UTME: JAMB, Others To Fix 2021/2022 Admissions Minimum Cut-off Marks By August

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board and heads of tertiary institutions will on August 31 at a policy meeting, peg the minimum cut- off mark for 2021/ 2022 admissions.

According to the board, decisions would be reached on the new minimum cut-off marks and other admission issues at the policy meeting which will be chaired by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.

The board disclosed this in its weekly bulletin released by its Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Sunday in Abuja.

It read, “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 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry applications, in addition to setting the tone for the 2021/2022 admission exercise.

“The meeting is expected to chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines and present application statistics, candidates’ performance as well as evaluate the 2020 admission exercise.

“The meeting, in addition to other deliberations, would take a stand on acceptable minimum admissions standards to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.”

It added that it is an abuse of process for any institution to commence any admission before the meeting as “it is this forum that gives this authorisation.”
