The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced a date to decide the minimum cut-off mark for 2024/2025 admission.

The policy meeting is scheduled to be held on Friday, July 18, 2024, to determine the minimum tertiary admission score on admissions into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

According to JAMB, the meeting which is to be chaired by the Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, would have other critical stakeholders in the education sector in attendance.

These critical stakeholders include Heads of regulatory agencies such as the National University Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), National Council for Colleges of Education (NCCE), Heads of tertiary institutions in the country, and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), among others.

The policy meeting on admissions set the tone for any particular year’s admission exercise, and formulation of admission guidelines. It also presents application statistics, and candidates’ performance evaluation, as well as setting the acceptable minimum admissions standards for all tertiary institutions across Nigeria for the given year.

During the meeting, the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ish-aq Oloyede will present reports on the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the ongoing Direct Entry (DE) applications while also analysing key performance indicators that could shape the policy directions of the government in the area of admission.

Also, the policy meeting would apprise stakeholders of the salient issues that cropped up in the previous year’s admission exercise and review the performance of candidates in the current year’s UTME to determine the year’s minimum admissible score.

In addition, the admission guidelines, which include recommendations from individual institutions and their preferred minimum admission scores, are presented and deliberated upon by Heads of the Institutions in attendance and chaired by the Minister of Education.

Furthermore, the meeting would determine the year’s admission requirements while kick-starting the admission process for the current year; discuss unresolved issues emanating from the previous academic year; and, at the same time, appraise the compliance of stakeholders with extant advisories and suggest further amendments where necessary.
