2020 UTME: JAMB decides On Cut-Off Point, June 16

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board is set  to hold the 2020 policy meeting on June 16, 2020, to determine cut-off points for admissions into all tertiary institutions in the country.
The Meeting is to be chaired by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu with all Heads of Tertiary Institutions in attendance.
The Board through its public Relations Officer, Dr Fabian Benjamin disclosed that candidates in the just-concluded 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) could now print their result notification slips.
He noted that the 2020 Policy Meeting which to be done online would be the first virtual policy meeting owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Board after the conduct of the 2020 Unified Tertiary Admissions Matriculation Examination (UTME), is yet to determine cut-off points for admission into universities, polytechnics, colleges of education and other tertiary institutions because of the pandemic that has slowed down activities in the country.
It would be recalled that part of the protocols put in place by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19 requires that no gathering of persons exceeds prescribed numbers.
Benjamin said compliance with the directive has become imperative as no fewer than 4000 Heads of Tertiary Institutions comprising degree, diploma, Nigeria Certificate of Education (NCE) and NID-awarding institutions and other stakeholders would normally be expected to congregate at a location but because of extant protocols, would now be expected to participate in the virtual meeting.
“The meeting will discuss critical issues bordering on the advances made in the educational sector in the last one year in addition to setting the tone for the 2020/2021 Admission exercise.
“The meeting will also chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines and make a holistic review of application statistics, performance as well as evaluate the 2019 admissions exercise.
“The meeting, in addition to other deliberations, would take a stand on concessional and acceptable minimum admissions standards to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
