This is coming on the heels of the scrapping of the Post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) by the Federal Government.

The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu announced the scrapping of the Post-UTME at the 2016 Combined Policy Meeting on Admissions to Universities, Polytechnics and other higher institutions in Nigeria.

Speaking on the new cut-off mark, JAMB’s Registrar and Chief Executive Officer, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde said the exam body will make sure no institution admits students who score below the official cut-off mark.

Ojerinde said “180 is given, no institution will go below 180 this year, And some universities can go above it, I know University of Ife will not go below 200 and University of Lagos will not go below 200 and also UI. All these ones stand but 180 as bench mark for others.

“This year we have more than enough candidates, we have over 1.5 million candidates so we will get enough candidates to take in all the schools if they are serious. Re-distribution is already ongoing, because it is embedded in the registration procedure.”
