The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has introduced flexible cut-off marks, in doing so, may approve the reduction of 180 cut-off mark for admission to tertiary institutions.
The disclosure was made on Monday by the Registrar of the Board, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, at the second technical committee meeting on “2016 Admissions to Tertiary Institutions” held at the Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education, Owerri.
Oloyede stated that the decision became imperative as a result of the inability of some of the institutions to implement the cut-off mark.
Oloyede also stressed that the new flexible cut-off will only be applicable to institutions that have exhausted the list of candidates that scored the 180 cut-off mark.
The JAMB Registrar further warned that no institution, whether Federal or State, will be allowed to continue with admission of students after the November 30 deadline.
