Anxiety As Candidates Await JAMB’s 2021 Cut-Off Marks
Ahead of the release of this year’s admission cut-off marks for courses in the nation’s universities, polytechnics and colleges of education by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on August 31st, anxiety has enveloped candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.
Candidates, who wrote the entry examinations are nursing fears that the expected cut off points may be raised higher than 180 and 200 that had been maintained over four years now.
Although the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has confirmed that the performance of candidates in this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is poorer than what it recorded within the past three years or thereabouts.
However, JAMB in conjunction with heads of tertiary institutions will hold the 2021 policy meeting to determine minimum cut-off marks and other issues for admissions into the 2021/2022 academic session.
