PostSubject: 2016 Official University and Polytechnic Cut-off mark to be Release in June — JAMB   Fri 01 Apr 2016, 9:06 am

THE Joint Admission and
Matriculation Board, JAMB, has
disclosed that the cut-off marks for
universities and polytechnics will be
made public in June, 2016.
Its Public Relations Officer, Dr
Fabian Benjamin in a telephone
conversation with Vanguard said:
“JAMB will officially publish the
2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination (UTME), cut-off marks
for universities and polytechnics in
June.”
He urged candidates of the 2016
UTME to ignore the cut-off marks
from some websites and social
media, stating that those cut-off
marks were just the imagination of
people.
You would recall that many
websites over the past weeks had
published that JAMB’s cut-off
marks for university and
polytechnic are 180 and 150
respectively.
Candidates seeking admission
Having gone through the rigour of
UTME examinations in the past
weeks, candidates seeking
admission in universities,
polytechnics and colleges of
education are expecting JAMB cut-
off marks which will give
candidates next line of action.
For any student to participate in
post-UTME of the institutions of
first and second choice, such
candidate must beat JAMB 2016 cut-
off mark, institution’s of first choice
cut-off mark, and departmental cut-
off mark. To JAMB, the cut-off
point for university and
polytechnics are determined every
year by the candidates’ over all
performance. Apart from JAMB
setting entrance cut-off points for
university and polytechnic
applicants, each institution, also has
its cut-off point for students
seeking admission in the school.
In most cases, even when a student
meets the cut-off mark of the
institution, admission is not
guaranteed if he does not meet the
cut-off mark of the chosen course.
Vanguard investigation revealed
that all these measures were put in
place by universities to reduce the
numbers of students seeking
admission, especially where many
students make the institution their
first choice. Thus, most times, when
JAMB gives cut-off mark as 160 or
180 to universities, universities like
the University of Lagos (UNILAG),
University of Ilorin (UNILORIN),
University of Benin (UNIBEN),
University of Ibadan (UI), Obafemi
Awolowo University (OAU),
University of Nigeria, Nsukka
(UNN) and Federal University of
Technology, Akure (FUTA) and
others, give their institution’s cut-
off marks. Such cut-off marks are
usually higher than the JAMB cut-
off marks.
Besides, students aspiring to study
courses like Medicine, Engineering,
Law and Mass Communication in
many universities, attract higher
university and departmental cut-off
marks.
For some Nigerian polytechnics, if
JAMB fixes its cut-off mark at 150,
institutions like Kwara State
Polytechnic and Lagos State
Polytechnic insist on 180 as cut-off
points. The knowledge of the
aforementioned will assist
candidates to change institutions
and courses of study before it’s too
late.
Certificate of Recognition
Meanwhile,the Executive Secretary,
National Universities Commission
had disclosed that 1.1 million
students seeking admission into
Nigerian universities will have their
hope dashed, as only 400,000 out of
the 1.5 million candidates that sat
for the Unified Tertiary
Matriculation Examination in 2016
will gain admission.
Okojie who spoke recently in Abuja
while handing over the Certificate
of Recognition for the new Edo
State University, Iyanmo to
Governor Adams Oshiomhole,
solicits for more universities in
Nigeria.
He said: “I am always happy when
a new university comes on board;
what that means is that we are
expanding and we are opening up
access.’’
He admitted that the number of
candidates that sit for UTME
organised by JAMB every year
outnumbered the available spaces
in Nigerian universities.
He said that the new universities
were needed to boost access to
higher education while making sure
that quality was not compromised.
