JAMB’s Minimum Cut-off Mark Will Destroy Tertiary Institution – ASUU
JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, had in agreement with other stakeholders announced 120 and 100 as the minimum scores for admission into universities and polytechnics, respectively.
He said, “30 per cent of those in higher institutions do not take JAMB or have less than the cut-off marks. The admission process is now automated with direct involvement of the registrar of JAMB for final approval.
“We have agreed to regularize admissions that were done under the table this year. From next year we will not accept anything like that”.
While describing the cut-off mark as a sad policy decision for the future of Nigeria, Omole accused the JAMB registrar of presiding over illegality.
According to him, rather than sanctioning the identified universities who admitted over 17,000 students illegally, the JAMB registrar simply regularised illegality and lowered cut-off marks to favour the interests of the friends of government who own private universities and are hell bent on destroying public education.
