UTME: JAMB yet to fix cut-off marks – Spokesperson warns candidates

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) stated that it has not published the general and national minimum cut-off marks for placement of candidates into the nation’s tertiary institutions as being speculated in some platforms.

Mr. Fabian Benjamin, who is the board’s Head, Media and Information, made this known via an interview with newsmen on Wednesday in Lagos.

According to Mr. Fabian, there is no such truth behind such speculations, adding that some persons, whom he tagged as fraudulent elements were behind the development with a plan to defraud innocent Nigerians especially the candidates.

Mr. Fabian Benjamin made it clear that the cut-off marks could only be agreed on with the inputs of strong stakeholders in the education sector scheduled for days ahead.

“We want to use this time and opportunity to warn the general public and candidates, not to allow themselves to be swindled by these desperate individuals that are spreading this rumor.

“The admission board has not yet come up with any cut-off mark for placements into the various tertiary institutions across the country.

“The cut-off marks cannot be drawn without the input of critical stakeholders of the education sector at an elaborate policy meeting,” he said.

He further explained that the next policy meeting would be held on the 11th of June at Gbongan in Osun State.

“We want to warn and appeal to the general public, especially the candidates not to fall prey to fraudsters.
