After the release of 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results, JAMB has revealed that the national and general minimum cut-off marks are yet to be announced.
JAMB’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin revealed this yesterday after rumours that they recently announced it.
His words, “We want to seize this opportunity to caution the public especially candidates, not to allow themselves to be swindled by these desperate individuals that are peddling this rumour.
“The board is yet to come up with any cut-off mark for placements into the various tertiary institutions across the country.
“The cut-off marks cannot be decided upon without the input of critical stakeholders of the education sector at an elaborate policy meeting.”
“The cut-off marks are the minimum expectation for every institution and that does not mean by attaining such cut-off mark, it, therefore, means an automatic placement into schools of first choice.
“We, therefore, want to appeal to the general public, especially the candidates not to fall prey to fraudsters.
“The board will continue to provide information to the public on its processes and activities at every stage.”
