Following the release of cut-off mark by the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board, the management of the University of Ibadan has insisted that their cut-off mark remains 200.
The Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) and stakeholders of higher institutions agreed on 160.
The institution insisted that it will have nothing to do with the national minimum cut-off mark.
The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, in a statement stated, “For the avoidance of doubts in the minds of our prospective admission seekers, their parents and guardians, our alumni and alumnae and the general public, the minimum mark for any course at the University of Ibadan, and all its Affiliated Institutions, remains 200 out of the maximum of 400.”
“This has been the position of the Senate of the University since the matriculation examinations into Nigerian Universities commenced in 1978.”
