JAMB Fixes Cut-off Marks For 2023 Admissions

By Adadareporters

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and tertiary education stakeholders have fixed cut-off marks for the 2023 admission into the nation’s universities.

The benchmarks of 140 for universities and 100 for polytechnics and colleges of education were approved during the 2023 annual policy meeting on admissions into tertiary institutions, which was held in Abuja on Saturday.

The meeting was chaired by the permanent secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, Mr Andrew Adejoh. It was gathered that the decision was in accordance with the recommendations of the heads of institutions.

The registrar of JAMB, Is-haq Oloyede, said though the meeting decided the minimum point, ‘institutions have the liberty to raise their individual minimum points higher than the agreed benchmark’.

According to him, “Anything we decide here will become the minimum. What it means is that nobody can go below it.”
