The action by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB to cancel the general cut off marks for admission into tertiary institutions has been eliciting reactions.
The Examination Body took the decision at the 2021 policy meeting held virtually and chaired by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, after which the Registrar Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, who disclosed the decision to news men noted that institutions were however given freedom to set their individual minimum benchmark for admission.
In a chat with members of the public, some respondents were positive about the development adding that it will lead to a boost in the sector through tertiary admissions.
For other, the action is a major setback to the standards expected for education in the country.
At the policy meeting, the stakeholders approved October 29th, 2021 as the deadline for the closure of amendments for 2021 admissions.
Stakeholders also adopted the 2021 admission guidelines, which provide that all applications for part time or full time programmes for degree, NCE, OND, and others must be posted only through JAMB.
Blessing and Favour
