No cut – off marks yet for UTME – JAMB


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said on Tuesday it is yet to release cut-off marks for placements into the nation’s tertiary institutions for 2017 academic year.

The Head, Media and Information, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made the clarification in a statement in Lagos.

He said the JAMB committee responsible for the determination of cut-off marks is yet to meet on the matter.
The JAMB spokesman said it is in the best interest of candidates and other critical stakeholders to ignore cut-off marks for various courses currently paraded by some people.

”We want to appeal to all candidates to jettison such speculations and engage themselves in more meaningful ventures that would add value to their future,’’ he said.

Benjamin said results of the just concluded 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) had since been released, with few others still being previewed.

”We want to appeal to Nigerians to understand that such candidates whose results are being previewed may not necessarily have participated in any malpractice.

“But rather, centres where they sat for the examination had issues during the conduct of examination.

”These issues were reflected on the CCTV footage and this suggests why they must be carefully investigated before releasing such results,” he said.
