Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB Admission Quota Closing Date/Deadline For The 2016/2017 Admission Process Has Been Announced[Date Fixed and No Institution Should Exceed Its Admission Quota]
Following the decisions arrived at the just concluded 2016 JAMB Combined Policy Meeting on Admissions to Universities, Polytechnics and other higher institutions in Nigeria, the 2016 official cut-off mark has been pegged at 180 for Universities, Polytechnic and Colleges of Education.
This implies that no higher institution; universities, polytechnics, colleges of education or certificate awarding institutions recognized by JAMB will go below 180. However, they can choose to go above the benchmark of 180.
“JAMB is one of the most active parastatals in the ministry; I expect that policies that would be beneficial to Nigerian students should be discussed at this meeting. “I believe there should be no ground to lower the quality; November 30 remains the closing date for 2016 admission. “No institution should exceed its quota in admission; we will start issuing penalties to defaulting institutions.’’
