According to the meeting held on Thursday in Abuja by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and tertiary education stakeholders which agree and adopted that the cut-off mark for 2016 admission into Nigeria universities, polytechnics and colleges of education is 180. This decision was adopted at the 2016 Combined Policy Meeting on Admissions to Degree, Nigerian Certificate of Education (NCE) and National Diploma (ND) chaired by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.

During this meeting the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu said that “if there was confidence in JAMB’s conduct of the University Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME), there should be no need for Post-UTME. The post-UTME is organised by various tertiary institutions to screen candidates who applied to such institutions and who had scaled through JAMB’s UTME. “If the universities have problem with what JAMB is doing, they should come forward with it and we will address it.”

“JAMB is one of the most active parastatals in the ministry; I expect that policies that would be beneficial to Nigerian students should be discussed at this meeting. “I believe there should be no ground to lower the quality; Nov. 30 remains the closing date for 2016 admission. “No institution should exceed its quota in admission; we will start issuing penalties to defaulting institutions.’’
