JAMB cut off: 120 doesn’t make sense for Universities- Nigerians explodes



Following the release of cut of mark by the JAMB (Joint Admission Matriculation Board) yesterday pegging minimum score for universities entry as 120 and 100 for polytechnics and colleges of education, Nigerians did not see any meaning in the development.

Social media users have criticized JAMB for making the cut off so low, saying last year was raised a little higher, giving those who score high a considerably fair of competitive opportunity.

Others said JAMB is bent on destroying the educational system of Nigerian, saying it is a blow on the perceived standard of education.

Twitter user, Dr. Dipo @OgbeniDipo said, “Cut off mark for JAMB is now 120/400. They lowered the standards for President Buhari. They lowered the standards for Nigerian students.”
Mocha @raychellered said, “Jamb cutoff is now 120? Why not let people get into uni without writing jamb then? What’s the point?”
Ebube D Statesman @akaebube, said, “In 2yrs we lowered every bar, largest economy to Recession.  N197 to N370 per dollar.  Aso Villa to Rat Villa.  Even Jamb cut off now is 120″

FAVOUR ONYEOZIRI @Rouvafe said, “Let’s just pretend like the new JAMB cutoff marks is not meant to favour a specific part of the Country. The problem with Nigeria is not JAMB cutoff marks, it’s the fact that we have very few & ill equipped universities to serve the masses”

S. Nwakor @Obunikechukwu, said, “When in 2021, unemployable graduates starts leaving the uni, remember that JAMB pass mark is now 120 for uni and 100 for poly. @julietkego”
Also a user Education Minister @IamJibbish said, “If you chose UI, Unilag, Uniben, OAU and go on to score 120 in Jamb thinking you will be given admission. You are on your own”
