Breaking News!! FG Scraps Post-UTME, Pegs Cut-Off Mark At 180

ABUJA - The Federal Government has scrapped post-
Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME, as a
pre-condition to gaining admission into universities in
the country.


The government and stakeholders in education sector
also pegged 180 as benchmark for 2016 admission into
universities, polytechnics and colleges of education to
improve quality of education in Nigeria.
These decisions were reached at the 2016 Combined
Policy Meeting on Admissions to Universities,
Polytechnics and other higher institutions in Nigeria.

The Minister of Education , Malam Adamu Adamu, while
declaring open the meeting, said since the federal
government and stakeholders had confidence in the
examinations conducted by the Joint Admissions and
Matriulation Board, JAMB, there was no need for other
examinations to be conducted by universities after JAMB
exams.

He said: "As far as I am concerned, the nation has
confidence in what JAMB is doing, the universities should
not be holding another examinations and if the
universities have any complain against JAMB, let them
bring it and then we address it.

''But if JAMB is qualified enough to conduct tests and
they have conducted test, then there will be no need to
conduct another test for students to gain admission.
