We are happy to notify all that candidates that participated in the 2016/2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has finally released the official cut-off mark for  universities, polytechnics, colleges of education and monotechnics in the country.

JAMB has announced the cutoff mark as 180 for the 2016 UTME. What this mean is that Irrespective of whether you chose University, Polytechnic, College of Education or IEI(Innovative Enterprise Institute), the cutoff mark is 180 .

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and tertiary education stakeholders on Thursday in Abuja adopted 180 as the cut-off mark for 2016 admission into universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.

The decision was reached 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.

In his opening remark, Mr. Adamu said 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.’’
