The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, (JAMB) who are responsible for regulating all processes regarding admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions has held their cutoff points at 180 and also encouraged universities to further increase their points above the set mark.
This action taken by JAMB has made students with 180 or lesser points unable to gain admission into the university because of the high UTME score set by these institutions.
Lets take a step to know what cutoff mark is about.
What is cutoff mark?
This is the minimum required points or marks set by a school or JAMB which a prospective candidate must hit or attain in a screening exercise in order to be qualified for admission into the institution.
