JAMB Admission Policy Meeting

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed August 31 for the 2021 admission policy meeting to kick-start the admission process into the nation’s tertiary institutions.


The Policy Meeting is to be chaired by the Hon. Minister of Education with all Heads of Tertiary Institutions in attendance.

The board disclosed this in its weekly bulletin released by its Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Sunday in Abuja.


It read, “This (policy) meeting kick-starts the admission process into the nation’s tertiary institutions. It will discuss critical issues emanating from the presentation of the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry applications, in addition to setting the tone for the 2021/2022 admission exercise.

“The meeting is expected to chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines, and present application statistics, candidates’ performance, as well as evaluate the 2020 admission exercise.

“The meeting, in addition to other deliberations, would take a stand on acceptable minimum admissions standards to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.”

Last year, the meeting pegged the minimum cut-off mark at 160 and above for admission into universities, 120 for polytechnics and 100 for colleges of education.
