JAMB Releases New Admission Cutoff Marks
The Federal Government, in agreement with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, has decided that the cutoff marks for 2014 admissions into universities will be 180, while polytechnics and colleges of education were put at 150, respectively.
The cutoff points were arrived at on Tuesday, after the 5th Combined Policy meeting on admissions to tertiary institutions, held at the National Universities Commission, Abuja.
The Supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, who declared the meeting open, frowned on the inability of most tertiary institutions to utilize their admission quota.
Wike, however, said in view of efforts to boost access, institutions which failed to utilize their admission quota for 2014 would be sanctioned.
