JAMB, Tertiary Institutions Decide Admission Cut-Off Marks June 24 2024

In an eagerly awaited development, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is set to hold a crucial meeting on June 24 to determine the admission cut-off marks for the upcoming academic year. The conference, to be convened by JAMB Registrar, Professor Is-haq Olanrewaju Oloyede, CON, NPOM, FNAL, will bring together representatives from tertiary institutions across the country, making it a significant step toward streamlining the admission process in Nigeria.

The annual JAMB policy meeting serves as a platform for key stakeholders in the education sector, including universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education, to deliberate on various admission-related matters. The primary objective of this year’s meeting is to establish the cut-off marks for tertiary institutions, addressing the challenges encountered in previous admission cycles.

Discrepancies arising from different institutions setting varying cut-off marks have often confused and hindered transparency in the admission process. With this meeting, JAMB aims to foster consensus among stakeholders, promoting fairness and consistency in admissions.

The participants will engage in extensive discussions, taking into account factors such as the performance of candidates in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), post-UTME screenings, and other relevant criteria. The ultimate goal is to reach a unified decision that balances merit and accessibility, ensuring deserving candidates are admitted while providing opportunities to a wide range of students.

Professor Is-haq Olanrewaju Oloyede, known for his dedication to transparency and efficiency, emphasized the significance of the meeting. He stated, “This meeting will enable us to reach a consensus on cut-off marks that will serve as a fair basis for admission into our tertiary institutions. We aim to ensure equal opportunities for all candidates, irrespective of their backgrounds or preferred institutions.”

Apart from determining the cut-off marks, the meeting will also address crucial issues such as implementing the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) and the mandatory requirement of the National Identification Number (NIN) for registration. These measures aim to enhance the efficiency and credibility of the admission process, streamlining operations for the benefit of both candidates and institutions.

Following the meeting, the agreed-upon cut-off marks will be announced, allowing aspiring candidates to plan their applications accordingly and better understand the requirements. Implementing standardized cut-off marks is expected to minimize confusion and reduce instances of multiple admissions for candidates.

As the date approaches for the JAMB policy meeting, all eyes are on Professor Is-haq Olanrewaju Oloyede and the participants from tertiary institutions. Their collective efforts and decision-making during the session will shape the admission landscape, ensuring a fairer and more transparent system for aspiring students in Nigeria.

    • Hello David

      You stand a chance for Medicine and Surgery.

      But you will need to get a high score in your Post UTME.

      You need an aggregate score above 315 to admission for Medicine and Surgery at UNN.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.
