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

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.

  • [email protected]: My fellow students/aspirants nd the future leaders of Nigeria, my writeup/post goes to those that are saying dat putme ll still hold by saying dat asuu, asup etc ll not agree to d new developmnt. wel let me start like dis. To be honest i can't remember d year i used my money to buy newspaper but after d outcome of d meeting held on 3rd june i first saw it here in myschool site i was robbing my eyes just to be sure it wasn'tdeceiving me, still not satisfied wit dat i googled straight to Jamb site, there i was somehow geting it but still doubting my eyes then, on friday 4th june i now went ahead nd bought NEWSPAPER (THE NATIONS) precisely, the first paragraph now reads: the FG yesterday scraped d conduct of PUTME for candidates seeking admission into higher institutions. The (ORDER TAKES IMMEDIATE EFFECT) so do i need to remind us dat in dis Buhari's administration, dat when an order is pass it is final nd there ll b no room for amendments not even when d person passing d order being d minister himself is an ethnical brother to the president who doesn't take contribution, suggestion, advice nd other ppls view except dat of his. So as long as Buhari's strong hand administration is concern immediate effect remains immediate effect. Take it or u leave it.

Dis is just a platform for jamb officials to enrich dia pockets cus they knw that henceforth, candidates will wanna do anytin possible to get a high score in jamb so dey will wanna pay whatever being charged of them at the exam hall so as to be allowed to cheat.

I trust schools like futo, since dia is a slim chance of them conductin a screenin exercise before admission which isnt equivalent to jamb, you will feel dia impact, just hit ur 400 in jamb nd come for admission.

Again, admission will now be for d highest bidder, people are abt to get duped in the name of admission. Time to hear stories like 'i paid 250k just to get forestry and wildlife in a state poly'...cant wait to see how dis play out.



Futo aspirants, add me on whatsapp, 07052638127...Comrade Serginho Anonie Chuks (geology 200level)...proudly futoite!
