JAMB Cut-off mark: Dr Fabian Benjamin advice candidate not to Rely On Our Cut-off Point For Admission, Board Tells Candidates

Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin said:

   The undue attention to the so_called national minimum UTME score (UTME cut-off mark), is a major source of failure of many ill-informed candidates who assumed that they have finally attained the Standardmark (cut-off point), having achieved the minimum benchmark "cut-off mark"  for admission.

   'Each tertiary institution determines and submits to JAMB its minimum UTME score, after having analyzed the UTME performances of its applicants against its available quota. Decisions at the annual Policy Meeting on Admission does not reduce the minimum benchmark of the institutions except the few institutions whose submitted minimum UTME Mark fall below what the Policy Meeting considers as the minimum cut-off mark' acceptable.

   He added; 'No uniform minimum UTME score (cut-off point) for all universities, polytechnics or colleges of education across the country.

   For long, many candidates and some members of the general public have come under the erroneous impression that there is a minimum national UTME points, which they also refer to as 'cut -off mark'. The truth is that there is no one particular national minimum UTME mark for all universities, polytechnics or colleges of education across Nigeria.

   'likewise, in most cases, UTME points is not the sole determinant of placement of candidates into tertiary institutions. It is, Hence, double jeopardy for many candidates who swallow the popular myth that there is a uniform UTME Cut-off mark for all universities, polytechnics or colleges of education in Nigeria.'
