The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, and heads of tertiary institutions in the country have fixed the minimum cut-off mark for admissions in the 2022/2023 academic session.

At the 2022 Policy meeting on Admissions presided over by the Minister of Education in Abuja, the minimum cut-off marks for universities is pegged at 140 while Polytechnics and colleges of education have 100 as the minimum.

The Registrar of JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, announced the cut-off after votes by vice-chancellors of universities, rectors of polytechnics, and provosts of colleges of education, said the implication is that every institution has the right to fix its own cut-off mark even up to 220.

However, no one will be allowed to go below the agreed minimum cut-off marks of 100 for colleges of education, 100 for polytechnics, and 140 for universities. The meeting also advocated the need for a review of admission criteria to give 10 percent discretional power of admission to heads of tertiary institutions.
