The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed the cut off marks for admission into tertiary institutions for 2017/2018 academic session.

It pegged the minimum cut-off mark for admissions into universities at 120 while 100 was adopted for admission into polytechnics and Colleges of Education.

JAMB's Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, made this known on Tuesday at the policy meeting attended by tertiary institutions in Abuja.

The delegates also agreed that admission into first choice universities should close on October 15 while December 15, 2017 was set as the closing date for second choice admission by institutions.

He said, “What JAMB has done is to recommend; we will only determine the minimum, whatever you determine as your admission cut-off mark is your decision.

“The Senate and academic boards of universities should be allowed to determine their cut-off marks.”
