The Cut-off for
Universities has been fixed to 180
while that for
Polytechnics and Colleges of Education have been fixed to 160.
Announcing the Cut-off
today, it is important to note that these are the Benchmark
cut-offs. This simply means that NO UNIVERSITY CAN CUT BELOW 180
and NO POLYTECHNIC OR COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CAN CUT BELOW 160. That is, for
any student to gain admission into any Nigerian University, they must score 180
and above. This announcement also confirms that all candidates who scored 159 and below cannot gain admission genuinely into any institution this 2012/2013 session and would need to re-write Jamb's UTME.
