The general minimum JAMB Cut-Off marks for the conduct of the 2023/2024 admissions have been announced. This was disclosed during the JAMB policy meeting held on the Saturday, 24th of June, 2023. The decision was taken after a session comprising officials from JAMB, the Ministry of Education, the National Universities Commission, and the National Board for Technical Education amongst others.
The minimum scores fixed by JAMB for candidates to secure admission into Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education are as follows:
|INSTITUTION TYPE||MINIMUM CUT-OFF|
|COLLEGES OF EDUCATION||100|
However, the institutions are at liberty to decide individual cut-off marks but no institution will be allowed to admit any candidate who scores below the the stipulated benchmark.
POSSIBLE INITIATIVE FOR SUBSEQUENT UTME
JAMB has also revealed that it is considering the possibility of a “Bring Your Own Device” initiative for the Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examinations and the Direct Entry Examinations. According to Oloyede, the initiative is such that it would allow candidates to take the examinations on their mobile phones. The JAMB boss noted that the board has continued to spend huge amounts of money on the conduct of examinations, hence the need for the initiative.
