The 2020 JAMB cut off mark for admission into Universities, Polytechnics, College of Education and other tertiary institution has just been released, check details below.
Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) which is the board in charge of tertiary institution admission in Nigeria has released the 2020 cut off mark for University, Polytechnic and College of Education admission for the year 2020/2021 session
JAMB registrar Prof Isaq Oleye,de made this announcement during the 2020 Policy meeting on tertiary institution admission in Abuja on Tuesday. For the 2020 JAMB cut off mark, 160 was set as the official cut off mark for public universities while 120 above and 100 above is the cut of mark for Polytechnics and college of education as well as innovation enterprise institutions respectively. This decision was made after each of the institutions voted and prescribe the minimum cut off mark for their institutions.
He also stated that no University will be allowed to admit any candidate who score below 160 cut off mark in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Also, Post Utme and other form of physical screening will be conducted by some institutions as deemed fit by them.
Also Varsities which voted beyond the 160 cut off marks will be allowed to set their individual cut off mark as specified. Therefore as expected some institutions such as University of Ibadan, University of Lagos, University of Benin, Obafemi Awolowo University and most federal Universities will likely stick with the 200 JAMB cut off mark. This also applies to Polytechnics College of Education and Innovation enterprise institutions which give raise their minimum JAMB cut off mark beyond 120 and 100 respectively.
Oloyede further stressed that there shall be no admission outside the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) and that any Institution who violates this or any of the other policies agreed upon will be sanctioned.
In view of this development candidates are to get ready as Jamb and tertiary institutions have been directed to proceed with the 2020/2021 admission processes. Some schools already have started selling their Post- Utme form while more school will begin mostly in August after this new development.
