The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has cancelled the national cut-off mark.
This development now allows Nigeria’s tertiary institutions to determine its admission benchmark.
JAMB took the decision on Tuesday at the 2021 policy meeting. The forum was presided over by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
Speaking during the meeting, the Registrar of JAMB Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said some universities such as the University of Maiduguri proposed 150, Usman Dan Fodio University Sokoto proposed 140, Pan Atlantic University proposed 210, University of Lagos 200, Lagos State University190, Covenant University 190, and Bayero University Kano, 180.
According to the stakeholders, the 2021 admissions will be conducted only through JAMB CAPS — no institution is allowed to admit candidates without uploading their details on CAPS.
