'Surpassing 120 Cut-Off Mark is not a guarantee for Admission'- JAMB

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".

JAMB has come under a lot of backlash following its announcement that the minimum cut-off mark for universities was 120 while that of polytechnics and innovate enterprising institutes was 100 and 110 respectively. [Read here if you missed it]
