JAMB Proposal On National Minimum Cut-Off Marks For [Private Uni, Poly & Colleges]


The Joint Admission Matriculation Board [JAMB] Registrar Prof Is-haq Oloyode during his visit with the rectors and provost of polytechnics and colleges of education has agreed on the minimum cut-off mark for the institution.

Read his statement below:

Consequent upon my visits to Polytechnics and Colleges of Education in Kano and Jigawa States and following representations to my Office from many institutions.
it is apparent that the issue of Common National Minimum Cut-off Mark was not acceptable to many Private Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education and Innovation Enterprise Institutions.

THE PURPOSE OF THE COURSES AND PROGRAMMES ARE DIFFERENT

The Board wrote to the Honourable Minister of Education on the need to approve waiver to make the
Cut-off flexible according to the desire and need of institutions.

DIFFERENT DURATION

The Institutions Have Given Reasons why National Minimum Cut-off Mark should not apply to different programmes with different duration:
  • Degree Between 4 and 6 years
  • NCE - 3 years
  • ND -2 years
ND is lower and different from HND which can be equated to first degree.

PUBLIC SERVICE ENTRY POINTS

  • Degree . Grade Level 08/09 or 10
  • NCE . Grade Level 07
  • ND . Grade Level 06

PROPOSAL ON CUT-OFF MARKS

It is proposed that henceforth, Committee of Vice-Chancellors, Committee of Rectors and Committee of Provosts should be given the opportunity to meet, discuss and reach a consensus on the Cut-off Marks for their various categories of institutions before the Policy Committee on Admissions where decisions should be tabled for approval.

The Board is in receipt of requests for waivers of the Cut-off Marks:






MINISTERIAL DECISION ON FLEXIBLE CUT-OFF MARK

In response to the numerous requests for waiver of National Minimum Cut-Off Mark, the Board has
received a green light for the following:
  • Universities that have exhausted all registrable candidates with scores of 180 and above can consider candidates with scores of 160 and above.
  • Monotechnics, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education that have exhausted all registrable candidates with scores of 180 and above can consider candidates with 120 and above.
