Cut-off marks for the 2020/2021 admissions will be fixed during a policy meeting of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Boards, JAMB.
The board revealed that the meeting will be chaired by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu and other heads of tertiary institutions.
The meeting which will discuss the various issues in the educational sector will be held virtually due to restrictions by government due to COVID-19.
“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 board’s bulletin said.
“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.”
JAMB also announced that the 2020 UTME result can now be printed on the board’s official website.
