The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed the date for the announcement of the 2020 official JAMB cut-off mark for admission into all tertiary institutions in Nigeria, asking higher institution admission seekers to disregard them ongoing cutoff marks.
The board said it was yet to release the cut-off marks for 2020 admissions, saying the ones in circulation were from fraudsters who in their usual ways,were out to dupe unsuspecting admission seekers.
The release of the official cut-off mark will usher in Post UTME examination and admission exercise for the 2020/2021 academic session across the nation.
According to JAMB, the cut-off marks for this year’s admission have not been fixed. The official cut-off marks would be decided at a stakeholders’ policy meeting that would be chaired by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu scheduled to hold June 15th and 16th, 2020.
“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 other critical stakeholders in attendance.
“This meeting has been fixed for June 15 and 16 all things being equal. Until this meeting is held, nobody can talk of the cut-off mark. Nigerians are advised to disregard any such marks being paraded.”
This means that the 2020 JAMB official cut-off mark will be known during the policy meeting to be held on June 15th and 16th, 2020.
JAMB also, in its weekly bulletin yesterday, said it had “reinforced its Central Admission Processing System, CAPS, mobile app to enable candidates access information regarding admission-related issues in the comfort of their homes without visiting any Computer-Based Test,CBT centres or cyber cafe. “All they need do is to download the JAMB’s CAPS onto their phones.
