The Joint Administration and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has stated that the 120 cut-off mark set for universities does not guarantee admission.
The board in a series of tweets released on one of its social media handles stated that it was dependent on other equally qualified candidates aspiring for the course.
The board announced the launch of a platform to streamline admission and permit candidates to track admission. They wrote;
"The 120 cut-off marks for universities does not guarantee automatic admission. It depends on other equally qualified candidates aspiring for that programme".
"Jamb introduces Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) to streamline admission exercise & give candidates the right to track admission".
"Direct Entry Registration closes on Friday, 15th September 2017".
