The idea of a general cut-off mark for institutions has been abandoned by JAMB. Institutions now have the ability to determine their own minimal admission cut-off marks. This was part of a decision made during the 2021 policy meeting, which was held virtually and led by Malam Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education.
Some universities, according to JAMB Registrar Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, offered 150, Usman Dan Fodio University Sokoto proposed 140, Pan Atlantic University proposed 210, University of Lagos proposed 200, Lagos State University190, Covenant University190, and Bayero University Kano proposed 180.
The stakeholders also agreed that the deadline for closing adjustments for 2021 admissions would be October 29, 2021, during the meeting. The stakeholders agreed to let the minister decide on the timeline for admissions closure because they couldn’t agree on December 31, 2021 for all public institutions and January 31, 2022 for all private universities.
As a result, schools will start publicizing their Post-UTME sales forms and screening dates in the near future. Now is the time to begin your planning. The official 2021 Post-UTME Past Questions and Answers of the various schools are now available. Get yours immediately.
The meeting agreed that the greatest score a candidate can present for Direct Entry, DE, is 6, and the minimum score is 2 or E, as required by law. Prison inmates, the visually impaired, and international applicants were also exempted from participating in the post-UTME exercise, according to the stakeholders.
In the coming days, we’ll share more information on the conclusion of the policy meeting. You can always refer to all Jamb Latest Updates.
