The lowest cutoff mark for Nigerian university admissions is 140, according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
The board has also established a minimum cut-off score of 100 for enrollment in the nation’s polytechnics and colleges of education.
The minimal cut-off points for different tertiary institutions were authorized by JAMB after the successful administration of the 2022 Unified Higher Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the publication of results, as agreed at the 2022 policy meeting on admissions to tertiary institutions.
Vice-chancellors, rectors, provosts, and other stakeholders attended the policy meeting on Thursday in Abuja, which was presided over by Malam Adamu Adamu, the minister of education.
The cutoff scores of 140 for universities and 100 for colleges of education and polytechnics, according to Professor Oloyede, JAMB Registrar, are only the minimums that no particular institution would fall below to accept students.
However, he stressed that no school should fall below what they gave to the board as their minimum cut-off scores and that all institutions that had previously given their proposed cut-off points must stick to them when accepting students.
