NANS Rejects JAMB Admission New Cut-Off Marks

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has rejected the cut-off marks for admission into tertiary institutions, describing the reduction as a gross misplacement of priority and exercise in futility.

NANS Vice President Olamide Odumosu, spoke at a protest by the group at the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Bwari, on Thursday.

Odumosu said that the reduction in the cut-off points would only lead to corruption as well as worsen the level of academic performance of students.

JAMB in conjunction with Vice Chancellors and Provosts is exploiting Nigerian students, thereby reducing the level of education in the country.

JAMB giving us 120 as a cut-off mark for Nigeria universities is a slap to our country.”

Odumosu added that the association would mobilise students across the 36 states, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to stage a protest if nothing was done to all of their plights.

From P. M news


  1. Let them mobilise and stage protest instead of them to be happy.
    do they know if this year's questions were so hard that there was mass failure which resulted in jamb lowering the current off mark?

    1. Dyu know that my brother also took JAMB this year and passed. And believe me he's not even a very good student, just average. He had to wake up every midnight to study. They had no excuse to fail. If they had studied instead of doing other things they would have passed.

      120 is a bullshit cut off

  2. Supported! Hes very correct as in he made very reasonable points.
    I frowned at d cut off mark that was released d other day. Extremely low abeg so therefore JAMB should try and look into it again. Education will seem like a childs play true true.

  3. Aboki wey no get brain. Instead of them to push their children to stop being nuisance beggars and terrorist, they are trying to make everyone in the country as daft as them. Rubbish. Make Buhari do quick and leave. Since they see a certificateless person can become president, they now want to destroy education finally. Why will a president who was never been challenged academically have respect for an educational institutions.

    1. And the one with certificates was a mega thief!!!

  4. Well said! Jamb is making a mess of our educational system.
    Education is not by force, if you cannot study to pass then forget it and go do something else.
    The standard should not be lowered.

  5. Nigerians in 2015, "Even if Buhari presents NEPA (National Electric Power Authority) bill as certificate yet we'll vote him in".
    Nigerians in 2017, "How on earth could JAMB (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board) have set universities cut off mark at 120?"
    Why are we so difficult to please? Don't a people get the kind of leaders they deserve?
