JAMB To Release Varsities, Polytechnics Cut-off Marks By June



The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will make public, the cut-off marks for universities and polytechnics in June, 2016.

According to Vanguard, JAMB Public Relations Officer, Dr Fabian Benjamin in a brief chat said: “JAMB will officially publish the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), cut-off marks for universities and polytechnics in June.”

Contrary to claims that JAMB’s cut-off marks for university and polytechnic are 180 and 150 respectively,Dr Benjamin urged candidates of the 2016 UTME to ignore the cut-off marks from some websites and social media, stating that those cut-off marks were just the imagination of people.

Meanwhile,the Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission, Prof. Julius Okojie has disclosed that  1.1 million students seeking admission into Nigerian universities will have their hope dashed, as only 400,000 out of the 1.5 million candidates that sat  for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in 2016 will gain admission.

He made this shocking revelation recently in Abuja while handing over the Certificate of Recognition for the New Edo State University, Iyanmo.
