The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), on Tuesday, announced its decision to peg minimum cut-off mark for universities across the country in the 2020 admission session at 160.
Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, made the disclosure after the 20th Policy Meeting on admissions to tertiary institutions.
He also said the cut-off mark for polytechnics was pegged at 120, while that of Colleges of Education remains at 100 and above.
Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, on his part, said he has directed JAMB and tertiary institutions to proceed with the conduct of their 2020/2021 admissions which will commence in August.
Adamu said, “As major stakeholders, we must jointly come up with reactions that would realign our programmes to these new realities.
“JAMB and tertiary institutions could take advantage of the current situation, consider candidates with previous years SSCE and other qualifying results, to proceed on with the admission process.
“Whatever arrangement that the country comes up with in the long run will surely accommodate those who will be taking the examination when the opportunity to do so is worked out.”
