JAMB Places University Cut-Off Mark At 140 For 2022 Admissions


At the Policy Meeting on Admissions which is overseen by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, held in Abuja on Thursday the 21st of July, 2022, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), as well as the heads of tertiary education institutions around the country have placed the minimum cut-off mark for admission into universities in the 2022/2023 academic session at 140.

However, that of polytechnics and colleges of education have been placed at 100.

This was announced by Professor Ishaq Oloyede, JAMB’s registrar, after intense deliberation by the necessary authorities, inclusive of vice chancellors of universities, rectors of polytechnics and provosts of colleges of education.

Speaking, Oloyede said that “every institution has the right to fix its own cut-off mark even up to 220 but no one would be allowed to go less than the agreed minimum marks of 100 for colleges of education, 100 for polytechnics and 140 for universities.”

The meeting also called for the review of admission criteria to give 10per cent discretional power of admission to heads of tertiary institutions.
