Information disclosed that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has reportedly fixed Friday 18th July, 2024 for the Policy Meeting to deliberate on admissions cut-off marks into tertiary institutions.

It states,

“During the exercise, the Registrar will present reports on the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the ongoing Direct Entry (DE) applications”.

“The registrar will also analyse key performance indicators that could shape the policy directions of the government in the area of admission”.

“Also, the meeting would apprise stakeholders of the salient issues that cropped up in the course of the previous year’s admission exercise”.

“In addition, the policy meeting will look at the performance of candidates in the current year’s UTME in order to determine the year’s minimum admissible score.”

It should be recalled that the stakeholders had in the previous year agreed on the minimum admission requirement for admission into universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.

Among other top agenda to be discussed in the meeting is to determine the year’s admission requirements while kick-starting the admission process for the current year.

The meeting will also discuss unresolved issues emanating from the previous academic year; and also appraise the compliance of stakeholders with extant advisories and suggest further amendments where necessary.
