We would love to inform and notify the general public, especially, all candidates who sat for the 2019 jamb examination, that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has finally released the cut off mark for admission for the 2019/2020 academic session.
We decided to share this information here today, after a member on our official Facebook page, unwisely said that the federal government has no say in the release of cut off marks for admission in Nigeria.
This news is official, as the JAMB board has officially released the cut-off marks for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), retaining the existing 180 cut-off mark for admission into universities in Nigeria and 150 for both Polytechnics and College of Education.

Faith, a Dailyschoolnews correspondent was able to gather that the board has also fix the cut-off marks for admission into Polytechnics and Colleges of Education (COE) at 150 each.
These were arrived at on Tuesday, after debate by stakeholders, including the following personalities.
* Vice chancellors,
at the fifth combined policy meeting on admissions to tertiary institutions held at the National Universities Commission (NUC).
THE JAMB Registrar and Chief Executive, who made this information known to the general public while speaking with newsmen, said the decisions were unanimously accepted by all stakeholders at the meeting.
The Chairman of the Board meeting, urged the academic institutions to strictly adhere to the following.
* 60:40 Science to Arts ratio for conventional institutions,
* 70:30 Technology to non-Technology ratio for specialised institutions,
which were aimed at entrenching the technical advancement of the country.
Mr. Eze also went on, to equally urged both federal and state-owned institutions to abide by the guidelines approved by their proprietors to promote unity, integration, geographical spread and equity in the nation’s academic sector.
“Accordingly, the 45:35:20 admissions quota for the merit, catchment area and educationally-less-developed states criteria should be complied with by federal institutions,” The chairman of the board went on to say.
Also at the meeting, is the supervising Minister of Education, Mr Nyesom Wike, who declared the meeting open, but did frowned at the inability of several educational institutions (tertiary) to utilise their admission quota.
The supervising minister of Education had however, said in view of efforts to boost access, that the institutions which failed to utilise their admission quota for 2019 would be sanctioned by the federal government and legal bodies.
He also went on to further reiterated the Federal Government’s commitment to the development of ICT training, which he said had already been inculcated as part of the standard curriculum at the secondary school level.
He said and we quote him directly: “I have been briefed that despite the rising demand for higher education vis-a-vis the availability of a large number of qualified candidates, some institutions did not fully utilise the admissions quota approved for them by relevant regulatory agencies in 2013.
The supervising minister of education did not stop there, as he went on to say something very important, which we believed if obeyed, will open doors to more students getting admitted into their school of choice.
“This disservice to the Nigeria child is totally unacceptable, in line with efforts of the Federal Government to improve access, let me urge you all to with effect from today, work assiduously to ensure that all admission spaces in your institutions for the current year are fully utilized within the approved time frame,” he stated.
Meanwhile, Jamb professor, in his presentation, gave a statistical run down of candidates’ preference for tertiary education.
He said after the conduct of the 2019 UTME, candidates who applied for degree awarding institutions or universities were 1,584,348, representing 97.07 per cent,
NCE applicants totalled 25,767, representing 1.579 per cent,
National Diploma and a paltry 22,072, representing 1.349 per cent,
while NID had just 46, representing 0.003 per cent.
The jamb registrar, went said he wondered why Nigeria’s educational system had consistently failed to embrace technical education in its quest for industrialisation, saying that the British which Nigeria copied the polytechnic education from awarded degree in all its polytechnics.
