Admission: JAMB, stakeholders peg varsity cut off marks at 140

ABUJA – THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, and heads of tertiary education institutions in the country have pegged the minimum cut-off mark for admissions in the 2022/2023 academic session.

The minimum cut-off mark for universities is 140 while that of polytechnics and colleges of education, respectively, were pegged at 100.

These were announced at the ongoing Policy Meeting on Admissions, presided by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, in Abuja, Thursday.

For the polytechnics, 120 cut-off mark was approved while 140 was approved for universities.

JAMB’s registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, who announced the cut-off after thorough debates and votes by vice chancellors of universities, rectors of polytechnics and provosts of colleges of education, said 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.”

While giving further statistics of the 2022 examination, Oloyede noted that 378,639 scored above 200; a total of 520,596 candidates scored 190 and above; 704,991 scored 180 and above; 934,103 scored 170 and above; 1,192, 057 scored 160 and above.

Speaking further, Oloyede noted that the board allowed candidates with awaiting results to register for the 2022 UTME.

“JAMB allowed awaiting results candidates to register and sit for the 2022 UTME. These candidates can’t be considered for admission on awaiting result status. They must present their O’level results on the board’s portal before the commencement of admissions.

The meeting also called for the review of admission criteria to give 10per cent discretional power of admission to heads of tertiary institutions.
