The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has set 140 and above as the cut-off mark for 2022/23 admissions into universities across the country.
The Registrar of the board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this during a presentation at the 2022 Policy Meeting on Admissions to Tertiary Institutions and awards on Thursday in Abuja.
Oloyede said 100 has been approved as the cut-off mark for Polytechnics and Monotechnic while 80 for Colleges of Education.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, explained that the aforementioned points are the minimum, but that does not mean that institutions must comply wholly.
