    All Private Universities should cut 140

    All public polytechnic should cut 120

    All private Polytechnics should cut 110

    College of Education should cut 100

    The issue is, will the jamb cut off mark that was released by jamb be accepted by all the universities and polytechnics?  Sometimes all these high universities find it hard to bring their standard so low in other to satisfy the poor performance of candidates who applied.

    The spokesperson of JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, in a statement on Monday said there is “no uniform UTME minimum score for admission” as each institution determines and submits to JAMB its minimum UTME score “after having analyzed the UTME performances of its applicants against its available quota.”

    There is a layer of misconceptions on what is generally described as a uniform minimum national UTME score for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. For long, many candidates and some members of the general public have come under the erroneous impression that there is a minimum national UTME score, which they also refer to as cut off point,” he said.

    According to him, the UTME score is not the sole determinant of the placement of candidates into tertiary institutions.

    “The undue attention to the so-called national minimum UTME score (UTME cut off point) is a major source of failure of many ill-informed candidates who assumed that they have finally attained the benchmark having achieved the so-called minimum national score or cut off point for admission,” he said.

    He said decisions at the annual Policy Meeting on Admission does not reduce the minimum prescription of the institutions ” “except the few institutions whose submitted minimum UTME- scores fall below what the Policy Meeting considers as the minimum score acceptable.”


    The truth is that the Jamb cut off mark that was released by Jamb Board is not a guarantee or must affairs that Universities should cut 160 but rather is a passage guide for the universities to follow.

    Any candidate who is seeking admission should have this in mind that the moment they notice that their university is accepting above 180 kindly change the university to another university that accepts your jamb low mark rather than saying jamb told universities to cut 160.

    In one statement what do you think about this new Jamb cut off mark that was released by Jamb Board and yet some Universities don’t follow it?
