The Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB Head of Media and Information Department, Dr Fabian Benjamin
On Sunday 15th April, 2018 during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the board has concluded arrangements to decide on the national
admission cutoff marks f tertiary institutions for the 2018/2019 admission exercise.
According to him he said the Board has distanced itself
from purported cutoff mark being circulated in somesections of the media, saying it did not emanate from the
board. Mr Benjamin said no such cutoff mark, whether for programmes or institutions had been released by JAMB as
was being speculated.
“We want to seize this medium to debunk such rumours as they are malicious and wicked as they are designed to defraud innocent Nigerians, especially parents and
guardians as well as other stakeholders.
“No cutoff marks will ever be decided upon without the usual policy meeting which has been scheduled to hold
sometime in June, 2018 and which is to be chaired by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
“Until that is done, every other thing that is being paraded
as cutoff mark is fictitious and therefore, the public is hereby warned not to fall prey to these fraudsters.
“In the same vein, any institution that has commenced any
form of admission without the official cutoff mark as
would be decided upon at the June policy meeting is
doing so illegally,” Benjamin warned.
