JAMB Approves Cut-Off Marks Propose By Institutions For 2021 Admission

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday approved the cut-off marks proposed by Nigerian tertiary institutions for the 2021 admission.

The approval was granted at the ongoing  2021 Policy Meeting and Admission being virtually held.

JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, said the institutions were allowed to go by their recommendation this year  to avoid the usual complaint that JAMB dictates the admission cut-off for the institutions.

He explained that the exam body usually approves the recommendation of the institutions and that this is still the practice.

He however warned that institutions can not go below the cut-off that they have fixed and that has been approved at the policy meeting.

Unlike in the past when JAMB recommended a cut-off mark for admission into universities, polytechnics and colleges of education, this time around, each institution  has been  allowed to admit based on their recommendation.

Based on this development, the cut-off for university admission for 2021 is between 210 and 120; polytechnics-180-100 and NCE-150-100.
