JAMB Speaks on Cutoff Marks

The spokesman of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Fabian Banjamin says the body has not published the national and general minimum cut-off marks for placement of candidates into the nation’s tertiary institutions as being speculated in some quarters.

This disclosure was made in an interview with NAN on Wednesday in Lagos. According to him, there is no truth behind such rumours, he adds that some persons, whom he described as fraudulent elements, were behind the development with a ploy to defraud innocent Nigerians especially the candidates.

Benjamin said the cut-off marks could only be arrived at with the inputs of critical stakeholders in the education sector, scheduled for days ahead.

“We want to seize this opportunity to caution the public, especially candidates, not to allow themselves to be swindled by these desperate individuals that are peddling this rumour.

“The board is yet to come up with any cut-off mark for placements into the various tertiary institutions across the country".
