The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board also known as JAMB is an organization that is responsible for the written examination of secondary school students into the higher institutions in Nigeria. After the examination, there is always a bench mark score provided by JAMB that every student is expected to score before they can be qualified to take the post UMTE of the institutions they have chosen. This has been the norms of the organization since its inception.

As people will always say, that change is constant and nothing is permanent in life. Based on this, some changes have indeed taken place from the side of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). In the light of the change, report disclosed that JAMB has adopted a minimum cut off mark for 2021 admissions.

According to the JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, who disclosed the minimum cut-off marks adopted by the tertiary institutions at the 2021 policy meeting on Tuesday in Abuja, he said that universities are not allowed to go below 120 while Polytechnics and Colleges of Education, are not allowed to go below 100 for admissions.

Based on this recent development, it means that there will be no uniform cut off marks for the 2021/2022 admissions. Furthermore on the deadline for the closure of admissions, the meeting came to an agreement to allow the education ministry to reach a decision. The reason why it is so is because they did not agree on the December 31 deadline for all public institutions and January 31, 2022 for all private institutions. At the end, the meeting was adjoined till October.
