The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) along with Nigerian tertiary institution heads will decide on the minimum cut–off mark for 2021/ 2022 admissions at a policy meeting on the 31st August, 2021. ayokinews.com reports
The board made it known that major admission issues would be discussed along with the cut off mark for the 2021/2022 admissions in the meeting which would be chaired/presided on by the Nigerian Minister of Education, Mr. Adamu Adamu.
JAMB made the detail public on Sunday in a weekly bulletin released by its Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
The bulletin reads;
“This (policy) meeting kick-starts the admission process into the nation’s tertiary institutions. It will discuss critical issues emanating from the presentation of the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry applications, in addition to setting the tone for the 2021/2022 Admission exercise.
“The meeting is expected to chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines and present application statistics, candidates’ performance as well as evaluate the 2020 Admission exercise.
“The meeting, in addition to other deliberations, would take a stand on acceptable minimum admissions standards to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
“Given the critical nature of the decisions to be taken at the meeting, it would be streamed live on the Board’s website, www.jamb.gov.ng, on its Facebook handle “@JAMBULLETIN” and other social media platforms.
“The Board makes it clear that it is an abuse of process for any institution to commence any admission exercise before this meeting as it is this forum that gives this authorization.”
