By HENRY TYOHEMBA, Abuja –
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), yesterday, declared that the controversy over the new cut-off marks issued at the just concluded stakeholders policy meeting is quite unnecessary.
In a statement signed and made available to LEADERSHIP by its public relations officer, Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB said it is also very misleading to say that vice-chancellors reject the cut off mark.
JAMB noted that all heads of tertiary institutions were requested to submit their cut-off benchmark to the Board which will then be used for the admission.
“And these benchmarks once determined cannot be changed in the middle of admission exercise.
“Again, it is necessary to explain that the 120 mark does not in any way suggest that once you have 120 then admission is sure for you. Institutions will admit from the top to the least mark.” he .
“We are now starting the actual monitoring of adherence to admissions guide lines, cut off marks inclusive,” he said.
