The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and heads of tertiary institutions in the country have fixed the cut-off mark for 2022/2023 admissions.
Channels TV reports that the decision was arrived 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 10per cent discretional power of admission to heads of tertiary institutions.
