BREAKING: JAMB sets the cutoff scores for admissions in 2022

JAMB 2022 Admission Cut-Off Marks: JAMB decides 2022 admission cut-off  marks thursday

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and tertiary education stakeholders on Thursday in Abuja adopted 140 as the minimum cut-off mark for 2022 admission into the nation’s universities.

The cut-off mark for polytechnics and colleges of education was pegged at 100.

The decisions on the cut-off marks were reached at the 2022 Policy Meeting on Admissions to Degree, Nigerian Certificate of Education (NCE) and National Diploma (ND) ongoing at the International Conference Centre, Abuja.

The meeting is being chaired by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.

In his opening remark, Mr Adamu warned Nigerian tertiary institutions against illegal admissions, saying all admissions into the nation’s universities, Polytechnic and colleges of education must be processed through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).

The minister said any head of tertiary institution found engaging in illegal admissions would be prosecuted even if the infractions are detected after their tenures.

At the meeting, a resolution was reached that

“Every institution is at liberty to determine the minimum UTME score acceptable to it for admission. Similarly, for Direct Entry admissions, each institution will determine the number of points required by it for direct entry admission. Nevertheless, no institution can recommend or admit any candidate with less than two points for direct entry.

“In the same vein, no institution can admit/accept the transfer of a candidate for any degree programme unless the candidate has spent on full-time, not less than two consecutive sessions in the institution.”

Additionally, the conference decided that “no institution would be permitted to suggest or accept any candidate whose total score is below the minimal score set by the institution and authorized by the Policy Meeting. When computing the percentage-minimum score, the sum of all scores used to rank the applicant must be taken into consideration.
