Contrary to the purported cut-off marks being circulated on social media, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said it has not announced any cut-off point for the 2018/2019 admission exercises.
The board’s Head of Media and Information Department, Dr Fabian Benjamin debunked the report saying no cut-off mark whether for programmes or institutions had been released by JAMB.
The JAMB’s spokesman also said that cut off marks would be disclosed sometime in June after policy meeting.
In a statement, Benjamin said “we want to seize this medium to debunk such rumors as they are malicious and wicked as they are designed to defraud innocent Nigerians, especially parents and guardians as well as other stakeholders.
“No cut-off marks will ever be decided upon without the usual policy meeting which has been scheduled to hold sometime in June and which is to be chaired by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
“In the same vein, any institution that has commenced any form of admission without the official cut-off mark as would be decided upon at the June policy meeting is doing so illegally.”
