The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that it will fix cut-off points for all courses for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on June 2.
JAMB spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin who disclosed this on Monday in a statement said the policy meeting which is for the exercise will be presided by the Honourable Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
He added: “This year’s meeting is scheduled to hold on June 2. Nationally accepted cut-off marks would be decided and issued Federal Government guidelines and regulations would be articulated and decision taken; even as it would x-ray the performance of subsequent years to put checks and balances.
“The very important meeting has policy makers, the Heads of all tertiary institutions, the Vice-Chancellors, Rectors, Provost, Registrars and relevant stakeholders like the National Universities Commission (NUC), National Youth Service Corps and others in attendance.
“The Honorable Minister places much important on this assembly and has categorically made it clear that he won’t tolerate a situation where decision reached would be flagrantly disobeyed or not adhered to strictly.
