The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has adopted a minimum cut-off mark for 2021 admissions.
The JAMB Registrar Prof Ishaq Oloyede has displayed minimum cut-off marks adopted by tertiary institutions at the 2021 policy meeting on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to the new arrangement, universities are not allowed to go below 120 while polytechnics and Colleges of Education, are not allowed to go below 100 for admission.
This means that there will be no uniform cut-off marks for the 2021/2022 admissions.
On the deadline for the closure of admissions, the meeting resolved to allow the education ministry to reach a decision as they could not agree on the December 31, deadline for all public institutions and January 31, 2022, for all private institutions.
