JAMB Statistics Of Those That Scored 180 And Above – the review
The JAMB
Registrar,
Professor Dibu
at the end of
the policy
meeting held
on Monday
6th June,
2016 said that
over 1.25
million
candidates
scored up to 180 and above.
From all indications, this seems to be the major
reason the cut-off mark was pegged at 180 for
Universities, polytechnics and Colleges of
education alike.
This means that any candidates with a score less
than 180 should as well forget about securing
admission via UTME this year.
This does not sound fair considering the fact that
in previous years candidates who score as low
as 150 were able to secure admission in
polytechnics and Colleges of education.
However, if we are to go by what the JAMB boss
said, it means that approximately, 80% of
candidates who participated in 2016 UTME
scored 180 and above. This seems to justify the
decision to peg cut-off mark at 180 for
universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of
education.
The question now is, how fair is this year’s cut-
off mark?
