The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said that the cut-off marks for this year’s admission is yet to be fixed.
According to the board, this year’s cut -off marks would be decided at a stakeholder’s policy meeting, to be chaired by Malam Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education. The meeting is slated for June 15&16, 2020.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the Board’s Head of Media and Information disclosed this in a statement on Sunday. He said the board had not yet adopted cut-off mark for this year’s admission and urged members of the public, particularly candidates, to disregard any cut-off marks being circulated by fraudsters, describing such as fake.
“Cut -off marks are decided at a policy meeting chaired by the Hon Minister of Education with all heads of tertiary institutions, CEOs of regulatory agencies in education and all other critical stakeholders in attendance. This meeting has been fixed for June 15 and 16 2020, all things being equal. Until this meeting is held nobody can talk about cut- off mark. Nigerians are advised to disregard any such marks being paraded.”
Meanwhile, nine computer-based tests centres (CBT), used in the conduct of the last Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination have been de-listed. One was delisted for allowing candidates to engage in malpractice, and the other eight, for technical deficiency during the March 14 examinations.
