The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has clarified that cut-off points are not set by the body.
He explained that a policy committee chaired by the Minister of Education, with the Board, Vice-Chancellors, Provosts of Colleges of Education and Polytechnic Rectors as members, is saddled with the task.
The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said this at the news briefing in Bwari, in preparation for the conduct of this year’s UTME.
He described cut-off points to be a minimum requirement and not an indication that one was admissible.
The JAMB boss reiterated the Board’s resolve to prepare more after learning all the lessons from its past to organize for a successful examination.
“Following the continuous determination to curb the incidence of examination malpractice and other related offences, we will use the Biometric Verification Machine to verify candidates before admitting them for exam”, he said.
