UTME 2018: JAMB Denies Release Of Cut-Off Marks For Institutions



UTME Candidates

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)

Contrary to media reports that the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board have reduced the cut-off marks, the Agency has denied such reports.

The Agency’s Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in a statement, said no cut-off marks has been released by JAMB either for programmes or institutions.

Benjamin, announced that cut off marks would be disclosed sometime in June after policy meeting.

He warned that any institution that begins admission process before the policy meeting would be acting illegally and that it would attract consequences.


Benjamin said “we want to seize this medium to debunk such rumours as they are malicious and wicked as they are designed to defraud innocent Nigerians, especially parents and guardians as well as other stakeholders.

“No cut-off marks will ever be decided upon without the usual policy meeting which has been scheduled to hold sometime in June and which is to be chaired by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.

“Until that is done, every other thing that is being paraded as cut-off mark is fictitious and therefore, the public is hereby warned not to fall prey to these fraudsters.


“In the same vein, any institution that has commenced any form of admission without the official cut-off mark as would be decided upon at the June policy meeting is doing so illegally.”
