The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will decide the cut-off for 2023 admissions into universities, polytechnics, and other tertiary institutions on June 24, 2023, Thetrust Media reports.
All heads of tertiary institutions and regulatory bodies, including the National Universities Commission, the National Board for Technical Education, and the National Commission for Colleges of Education, among others, will be present at the event, which will take place at the National Judicial Institute.
Only two representatives from each of the respective tertiary institutions, consisting of the Head of the Institution and one official of the institution, who shall be nominated by the Head, will be welcomed, as the board stated in the weekly bulletin provided to our correspondent by the Director, Public Affairs, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin. Other crucial topics, notably those pertaining to the education sector, are scheduled for consideration during the policy meeting in addition to those arising from the Registrar’s (JAMB) presentation on the just-ended UTME.
“The meeting is also expected to chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines, present and analyze application statistics and candidates’ performance, as well as evaluate the 2023 admission exercise.
Furthermore, the policy meeting, among other things, would decide the acceptable minimum admissible score to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.”
According to Thetrust Media in 2022, the meeting granted institutions the power to set their minimum allowable cut-off marks for admission, which they cannot go below once adopted and general concessions are reached.
