Says each institution determines minimum score for admission
There’s no uniform UTME minimum score for admission, JAMB insists..
ABUJA–THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB,has told candidates jubilating for meeting its set benchmark for admission into tertiary institutions not to rely on the cut-off point.
JAMB said meeting its cut-off mark was not a guarantee for admission,explaining that there were other different factors for consideration for admission.
According to the board which stated this in its weekly news bulletin, released to the media Monday, by its Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin,”The undue attention to the so-called national minimum UTME score (UTME cut-off point), is a major source of failure of many ill-informed candidates who assumed that they have finally attained the benchmark having achieved the so called minimum national score or “cut off point’ for admission.”
It said even with its benchmark, “each institution determines and
submits to JAMB its minimum UTME score; after having analyzed the UTME performances of its applicants against its available quota.”
