JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said universities, with the decision, are not to go below the minimum 120 cut-off points adopted by the meeting for admissions.

“The Senate and academic boards of universities should be allowed to determine their cut-off marks.” He said, “The admission process is now automated with the direct involvement of the Registrar of JAMB for final approval.
“We have agreed to regularize admissions that were done under the table this year. From next year we will not accept anything like that.”
The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, also encouraged universities and other academic institutions to conduct Post-UTME screening as a precondition to gaining admission into the Nigerian tertiary institutions while adding that fee for the examination should not exceed ₦2000.
