The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has defended the pegging of 120 as minimum cut-off marks for university admission.
JAMB’s Head of Information Dr. Fabian Benjamin, in a statement in Abuja, said the board would not be deterred and would continue to support policies that would bring Nigeria’s education out of the woods.
He explained that previous cut off marks were never strictly followed by most institutions.
Dr. Benjamin said most universities failed to fill their admission quota in the last 10 years.
According to him, institutions in the past went behind to admit candidates with less cut-off marks, while also accusing some institutions of admitting candidates without JAMB results.
