The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) approved 140 as the minimum cut-off mark for admission into Universities in 2022.
JAMB decided to reduce the minimum cut-off mark on Thursday at the Policy Meeting on Admissions to Universities in Nigeria.
JAMB’s Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede announced the decision to reduce the cut-off mark, saying that the institutions can fix their mark above the cut-off mark but they should not fix it below the agreed minimum mark, which is 140 for universities, 100 for colleges of education and polytechnics.
