UTME 2019: JAMB Candidates React To The Fixed Cut Off Mark

UTME 2019: JAMB Candidates React To The Fixed Cut Off Mark

The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board, JAMB have released the JAMB cut off mark for the year 2019/2020 to be 160, which cause some candidates to react in different manners, NIGERIA NEWS reports.

The cut-off mark decision was made at the Joint 19th Policy Meeting held in Gbongan, Osun state.

Some candidates were interviewed by News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Wednesday in Bwari

Flora Chikwe reveals to the NAN in an interview that she is happy that her JAMB score is above the JAMB cut off mark as she scored 180, according to her.

Flora further stated as quoted below of her opinion as regards the fixed cut off mark for 2019/2020 admission.

“I feel the mark is okay, at least I scored above 160.

“However, I am skeptical about the entire process because apart from the scores, you still have catchment areas and post UTME to worry about because these schools put such into consideration.

“In fact, apart from the JAMB cut-off mark, you have to also think about the course you applied for, whether your score is applicable to the course’s cut-off mark.

“This also varies from one institution to the other.”

Musbau Adamu, JAMB candidate also stated that he is satisfied with the cut off mark but further express his concern as regards the way the institution takes time to process admission.

Musbau states as follows:

“I pray that this year will be different since JAMB has given its deadline on the admissions process.

“I also pray that the institutions will adhere to the N2,000 post UTME fees as prescribed by JAMB. If not, that money really weakens some people who cannot afford a higher cost for the process.

“More painful is after paying and you still do not get admitted into the school. We will, however, remain hopeful though.”

A teacher, Ceasar Adams also pour out his opinion by saying that in some Universities the JAMB cut off mark may not be applicable as it is customary for some tertiary institution to fixed their cut off mark at 200.

He further stated as follows:

“So those in that area who have less than 200 cannot jubilate over the 160 marks but it is our prayer that a higher percentage of candidates are admitted into all institutions this year.”

NIGERIA NEWS gathered that the tertiary education stakeholders have reach agreement to start the admission process for the first choice admission between 21st August to 16th of November, 2019. The cut-off mark for the private and state universities would also be 140 as agreed upon in the meeting.
