The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and heads of tertiary education institutions and other stakeholders in the education sector in the country today announced the minimum cut-off mark for admissions into tertiary institutions for the 2022/2023 academic session.
The announcement on the cut-off marks were reached at the 2022 Policy Meeting on Admissions to Degree, Nigerian Certificate of Education (NCE) and National Diploma (ND) at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.
The cut-off mark for admission into a University is 140, Polytechnics and Monotechnics was pegged at 100, while 80 was voted for Colleges of Education.
Professor Ishaq Oloyede, JAMB’s Registrar, who announced the cut-off said every institution has the right to fix its cut-off mark even up to 220 but no one would be allowed to go less than the agreed minimum marks of 100 for Colleges of Education, 100 for Polytechnics and 140 for Universities.
“JAMB allowed awaiting results candidates to register and sit for the 2022 UTME. These candidates can’t be considered for admission on awaiting result status. They must present their O’level results on the board’s portal before the commencement of admissions,” Oloyede said.
JAMB also announced that it will no longer consider the A’level results by the National Business and Technical Education Board (NABTEB) for candidates seeking to gain direct entry admissions to tertiary institutions.
