Please note that the Institutions listed above are, however, at liberty to raise their cut off marks for admission above the minimum set by JAMB.
These decisions were taken at the 2019 Combined Policy Meetings on Admissions into Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said institutions, with the decision, are not to go below the minimum cut-off points adopted at the meeting for admissions.
According to him, “What JAMB has done is to recommend; We will only determine the minimum, whatever you determine as your admission cut-off mark is your decision.
The board will ensure that criterion set by Senate are strictly adhered to by the institutions’ admission officers and no shifting of goal post in the middle of the admission exercise.
From the above, it is clear that most schools would keep their cut off marks at the same figure except for schools that are lacking students.
