The Federal University of Technology, Akure(FUTA) has been the first among many federal Universities to publicly turn down the JAMB 2012/2013 official post-utme cut-off marks for Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.
The JAMB 2012/2013 post-utme cut-off marks decided in abuja together with the National University Commission(NUC) on the 21st of May, states that;
All universities are to welcome students who scored 180 and above in the just concluded 2012 JAMB UTME, while All Polytechnics and colleges of Education are to welcome students who scored 160 and above for their 2012 post-utme registration
The federal University of Technology Akure(FUTA) automatically rubished that decision by disclosing on their 2012/2013 post-utme application announcement, that they welcome only candidates who scored 200 and above in the 2012 UTME examination, just two days after JAMB made the announcement.
FUTA wrote thus; All candidates who made the Federal University of Technology, Akure(FUTA) their first or/and second choice(s) and obtained a minimum score of 200 in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in March, 2012 are invited for the Computer based screening exercise in the University from Wednesday, 6th June to Saturday, 9th June, 2012.
This action leaves serious questions about our educational sector in Nigeria, especially, that of The tertiary Institutions. The big question though is, WHO MAKES THE DECISION REGARDING ADMISSION?
They all have a hand in the disorderliness of our Educational sector today.
