Nigerians react to 2019 JAMB cut-off mark

It was no doubt, all joy for some Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTMEcandidates to hear the announcement of Universities cut-off-mark by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB)

160 and above was declared the official cut-off mark for admissions in 2019,

140 was approved as the cut-off mark for admission into private universities.

120 UTME score was agreed as the admission requirement into public polytechnics while 110 is the minimum for admission into private polytechnics.

While many JAMBITES seem to be happy at this news, some Nigerians have expressed concern and disappointment over JAMB’s decision, describing it as reducing the standard of education in Nigeria.
