Don’t Expect Federal Universities, Apart From UNN To Cut At 180- Obasi. D. C. Chinedu!!!

The 2013 Jamb Utme Cut-Off marks has been released yesterday, after a rowdy argument at the 4th Combined Policy Committee meeting held at NUC headquarters in Abuja.

They arrived at 180 for degree-awarding institutions, while the cut-off mark for non-degree awarding institutions was pegged at 150 from 160 to encourage candidates to opt for polytechnics and colleges of education.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, made the disclosures, yesterday, at the NUC headquarters, stressing that the admission capacity of tertiary institutions in the country had been raised to 704,000, from the initial 500,000.

However, VNTI’s Obasi Chinedu urges students who scored less than 200 marks in the 2013 UTME exercise, not to start the party yet, as it is not the first time that the event has happened.

In 2012, they all Unanimously agreed on the cut-off of 180 for degree awarding institutions and 160 for others, but as expected, the big powers of Nigerian Tertiary institution, would not bow down in submission to the agreement.

The Obafemi Awolowo University(OAU), Ife was the first to break the bond, when the institution announced her post-utme screening for admission seekers who scored at least 200 marks on the 29th of May, 2012.

The University of Ibadan(UI), and the University of Ilorin(UNILORIN), followed in the same vein, by announcing post-utme for only candidates who scored 200 marks and above, with Unilorin going further to raise her standard, that only candidates who scored 240 marks and above would sit for admission screening into Medicine and Surgery.

The University of Nigeria, Nsukka also followed suit, but they might have to consider this year, owing to the low scores of her applicants.
According to our reports, if the University insists to maintain her expected cut-off of 200, Less than 20,000 first and second choice candidates would be sitting for her post-utme screening, since only 19,459 candidates who applied for the University, crossed the 200 mark, but about 52,444 first and second choice aspirants crossed the 180 mark. As a result, the University might have to consider relaxing their grip on the 200 mark.

Whatever happens, I believe we are still here to watch how things go, and hopes it favours every University aspirant, who has read hard to cross that mark.

No matter what happens, I declare confidently to you, that admission is your!!!

Obasi. D. C. Chinedu
