Academic Staff Union Of University Of Ibadan Rejects New Jamb Cut-off Marks

The management of the University of Ibadan, and its academic union, Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU have condemned and rejected the new cut-off marks for universities admission for 2017/2018 academic calendar.



This position was contained in a statement titled, “On the Recently Announced cut off Marks of 120 for University Admission: our position in UI”, released from the Office of the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka.


The statement declared, “The Management of the University of Ibadan wishes to inform the public about the recently announced cut off marks of 120 for University Admission that UI will not lower her standards” , adding, “the Nigeria’s premier university still maintains her position in academic excellence and standards in order to continue to aspire towards becoming a world-class university”.


It should worry us as patriots that candidates who scored just 30 percent in UTME can be admitted into some of our universities. Yet, we complain of poor quality of our graduates. You can hardly build something on nothing. The consolation here is that since JAMB started conducting this qualifying exam in 1978, UI has never admitted any candidate who scored less than 200 marks out of the maximum 400 marks.


Even for polytechnic, 100 marks is 25 percent. It is sad. And that is where we are in Nigeria. They want to destroy public education at all cost. This is not setting standard for education in Nigeria. It is purely lowering standards and digging grave for the future. This is why ASUU is currently on the struggle to influence the government to do the needful for education in Nigeria.

In my own opinion, the main reason,the cut off mark was lowered is to enable the universities make more money.With the reintroduction of post UME to be conducted by this Shylock universities. The lower the cut off, the more candidates that would buy the post UME forms, believing that dey can remedy their bad score in the exams.This is really terrible and bad

Is only in this country that people believe if you don't pass Jamb, spend six years in primary school, secondary school, four to five years in higher institutions then you cannot become a graduate.

Exactly it's so funny that when others are going higher we are thinking of reducing out standard. do they even know the grades required by students to get into colleges like Harvard? That's why they produce great people who in turn help their economy, ours is to rush students anyhow just so they can be called graduates then we wonder why our youths are brainless, some can't even make meaningful contributions (slay mamas and yahoo boy).

This 120 is just rubbish. I was rejected for getting 230 during our time even though 200 was cut-off. The youths these days are all about social media. They should be made to drop their phones and pick up their books.

wats the question marks for?

Ms. Nicey said...

Even polytechnic cut-off was 180 in 2007. How can we be running an education sector on diminishing standards, and expect improvement.

You are too daft, JAMB is responsible for fixing cut off not the government. They were not forced by the government to lower the cut off. When the cut off was changed from 200 to 180 due to poor performance in the exam there were no complains.possibly the grades are very poor this year. Representatives of the universities were in the meeting where the cut off was decided. Yes, 30% is very low but the various schools see this as an opportunity to make money through post jamb exams.You guys must have a reason to blame government for everything. You send your nudes to men you met on S&M, when it backfires you blame the govt.
