JAMB denies release of cut-off

JAMB registers over 1.8m candidates, says no date yet for 2019 UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has debunked speculations that it has released the national and general minimum cut-off marks for placement of candidates into the nation’s tertiary institutions.

Dr Fabian Benjamin, the board’s Head, Media and Information disclosed this in an interview with newsmen on Wednesday in Lagos.

He said the cut-off marks cannot be decided upon without the input of critical stakeholders of the education sector at an elaborate policy meeting.

“We want to seize this opportunity to caution the public especially candidates, not to allow themselves to be swindled by these desperate individuals that are peddling this rumour.

“The board is yet to come up with any cut-off mark for placements into the various tertiary institutions across the country.

The spokesman noted that the board would continue to provide information to the public on its processes and activities at every stage.

“The cut-off marks are the minimum expectation for every institution and that does not mean by attaining such cut-off mark, it therefore means an automatic placement into schools of first choice.

“We therefore want to appeal to the general public, especially the candidates not to fall prey to fraudsters,” he added.
