New Jamb Rules And Universities Affected by New Jamb Rules: There is no change in the jamb cut off mark from the normal 180 which is usually used as the cut off mark by jamb over the previous years except the following universities.

University of Lagos (UNILAG).

Following the rancour at the University of Lagos on Wednesday morning over admission scores, the spokesperson of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, Fabian Benjamin, has said universities are allowed to go above the National admission examination cut off mark.

JAMB had announced 180 as the cut off score for admission into degree programmes and 150 for national certificate in education, national diploma and national innovation diplomas.

But explaining to our team Mr. Benjamin said a university, depending on its peculiarities , can raise its cut off mark above the national recommendation of 180.

Many candidates with their parents gathered at the university gates as early as 7 a.m. chanting solidarity songs, demanding the removal of the JAMB registrar, Dibu Ojerinde.

“We were stopped at the gate simply because we got below 250 which they claim is the schools cut-off mark,” he said.
