Following
some of the
decisions
taken at the
2016 JAMB
Combined
Policy meeting
which include
the official
announcement
of the 2016
cut-off mark
as 180 for Universities, Polytechnic and Colleges
of education and the scrapping of Post-UTME,
many candidates are asking a lot of questions
with regard to how the admission process for
this year is going to run.
Having examined the situation, we would like to
point out some factors that may likely come in to
play in 2016 admission process.
First, one thing that will likely be a fall-out of this
new development is the fact that the cut off-
mark of top institutions like UNIBEN, UNILORIN,
OAU, UI, UNILAG may shoot up to 220, 240 or
even 250. However, no institution will go below
180.
The responsibility of placing candidates in
schools will now reside with JAMB. However,
JAMB has to first confirm the requirements of
institutions before placing candidates in such
institution. For instance, if UNIBEN decides that
their cut-off mark for this year is 250, it is only
candidates who applied to study in that school
and score up to 250 will secure admission in
UNIBEN.

Similarly, since the bench cut-off mark is 180,
JAMB may decide to re-distribute candidates
who scored up to 180 to other institutions (who
knows, it could be a university, polytechnic or
College of education since they all have the
same cut-off mark) if the institution they
originally chose have reached its admission quota
or if such candidates UTME score falls below the
set cut-off mark of their specific institutions.
The scrapping of Post-UTME does not
necessarily mean that institutions cannot
conduct other forms of screening, it only means
they cannot conduct another form of
examination similar to UTME. So schools may
decide to use oral interview or verification of
documents to screen candidates.
The scrapping of post-UTME will equally save
candidates the cost of purchasing their school’s
post-UTME form and going through the usual
hassles associated with it.
However, all these factors will be expected to
play out when ASUU, ASUP and NCEE accept the
outcome of the 2016 JAMB Combines Policy
meeting.
Since these bodies are yet to express their
stance on this, we will only wait to see how it
plays out at the end of it all.
Now, lets know your opinion on this or what you
think the admission process will be like.
