The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has set the benchmark for admission into tertiary institutions for the 2020/21 school session.
The cut off points ranged from 100 and above for Colleges of Education, 120 and above for Polytechnics and 160 and above for universities.
The Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, disclosed this during JAMB’s policy virtual meeting in Abuja, yesterday.
Oloyede also disclosed that a total of 612,557 candidates were offered admission in the 2019/20 session, with about 510,957 not able to secure admission during the same period.
“Of the 1,157,977 candidates who sat for the UTME in 2019, about 612,557 were admitted,” he said in his opening address on the occasion.
Oloyede noted that candidates waiting for their results would only be considered when they upload their results on the Board’s website.
