Possible Effects Of Scrapping Post- UTME And Pegging Cut-Off Mark At 180

    Following some of the decisions taken at the 2016 JAMB
    Combined Policy meeting which include the official
    announcement of the 2016 cut-off mark as 180 for
    Universities, Polytechnic and Colleges of education and the
    scrapping of Post-UTME, many candidates are asking a lot of
    questions with regard to how the admission process for this
    year is going to run.
    Having examined the situation, we would like to point out
    some factors that may likely come in to play in 2016
    admission process.
    First, one thing that will likely be a fall-out of this new
    development is the fact that the cut off-mark of top
    institutions like UNIBEN, UNILORIN, OAU, UI, UNILAG may
    shoot up to 220, 240 or even 250. However, no institution will
    go below 180.
    The responsibility of placing candidates in schools will now
    reside with JAMB. However, JAMB has to first confirm the
    requirements of institutions before placing candidates in such
    institution. For instance, if UNIBEN decides that its cut-off
    mark for this year is 250, it is only candidates who applied to
    study in UNIBEN and score up to 250 will secure admission.
    Similarly, since the bench cut-off mark is 180, JAMB may
    decide to re-distribute candidates who scored up to 180 to
    other institutions (who knows, it could be a university,
    polytechnic or College of education since they all have the
    same cut-off mark) if the institution they originally chose have
    reached its admission quota or if such candidates UTME
    score fall below the set cut-off mark of their specific
    institutions.
    The scrapping of Post-UTME does not necessarily mean that
    institutions cannot conduct other forms of screening, it only
    means they cannot conduct another form of examination
    similar to UTME. So schools may decide to use oral interview
    or verification of documents to screen candidates.
    The scrapping of post-UTME will equally save candidates the
    cost of purchasing their school's post-UTME form and going
    through the usual hassles associated with it.
    However, all these factors will be expected to play out when
    ASUU, ASUP and NCEE accept the outcome of the 2016
    JAMB Combined Policy meeting.
    Since these bodies are yet to express their stance on this, we
    will only wait to see how it plays out at the end of it all.
    Now, lets know your opinion on this or what you think the
    admission process will be like.
