No going back on 200 cut-off mark —UI

The management of the University of Ibadan has said it would not go beyond the 200 benchmark it has set for admission into the institution.

JAMB had pegged the admission cut-off mark  for universities at 160 but the university said it would not lower its standard.

The university’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration) of the university, Prof Kayode Adebowale, disclosed this on Tuesday at the orientation programme for the newly admitted 4,000 students.

“We don’t go below 200 as the cut-off mark for JAMB score,  although JAMB stated this year that universities can take 160 as the cut-off mark, but  200 is our benchmark,” the DVC said.
