The board annually announces cut-off marks, from the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), for all levels of institutions based on consensus with all relevant stakeholders.

But registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, announced after a policy meeting on Tuesday, August 31, 2021, that many of the institutions proposed numerous marks that were not in sync.



“Institutions have now been given the liberty to decide cut-off marks. There will be no cut-off marks from JAMB,” he said.

Institutions also failed to agree on a deadline for the closure of admissions, leaving the decision up to the Ministry of Education.
