Heads of universities on Saturday adopted 140 while rectors of polytechnics adopted 100 as the minimum cut–off marks for 2023 admission into both Universities and Polytechnics in Nigeria.
Also, 100 was adopted as the minimum point for admission into colleges. The decision was adopted by the Provost of colleges at the meeting.
The decision was reached at the 2023 policy meeting on admission guidelines organised by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Saturday in Abuja.
During the meeting, Registrars of universities agreed that no university, except 15 private universities, who picked 130 – 120, should go below the 140 marks adopted.
Oloyede said institutions would not be allowed to go below the minimum points they have adopted for admission into programs in their schools.
The meeting agreed that students should not be cut off from admission as a result of their UTME score.
