JAMB Cutoff Mark 2020 – The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the 2020 JAMB policy meeting and JAMB Cutoff mark of all tertiary institutions for June 16.
The policy meeting is to be chaired by the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, with all heads of tertiary institutions in attendance.
He said the meeting will chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines, and make a holistic review of application statistics, performance as well as evaluate the 2019 admissions exercise and also the performance of the 2020 JAMB examination.
“The meeting, in addition to other deliberations, would take a stand on concessional and acceptable minimum admissions standards (JAMB Cutoff Mark) to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria,” he said.
The 2020 policy meeting will hold virtually according the statement of Mr Benjamin.
Mr Benjamin said “Compliance with this directive has become imperative as no fewer than 4000 Heads of Tertiary Institutions comprising degree, diploma, NCE and NID-awarding institutions and other stakeholders would normally be expected to congregate at a location but because of extant protocols, would now be expected to participate in the virtual meeting.”
He said the modalities for the meeting would entail the board issuing only one access code to each participating institution to join the meeting.
“This access code is not to be shared or given to unauthorized persons. However, other critical stakeholders within the institutions like the Registrars, Admissions Officers can cluster around a big screen in a location to attend the meeting using the unique access code,” he said.
He said the meeting will discuss critical issues bordering on the advances made in the educational sector in the last one year in addition to setting the tone for the 2020/2021 admission exercise.
“The meeting would be streamed live on the Board’s website; www.jamb.gov.ng, its Facebook, JAMBulletin and other social media platforms,” he said.
The 2019 policy meeting held in Gbongan, Osun State, on June 11, 2019.
The venue was Bola Babalakin (Executive) Auditorium and one of the purposes of the meeting was for education stakeholders to jointly determine the cut-off pass mark for 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)
JAMB Result Notification Printing Portal is Online
The board also said candidates in the just-concluded 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) can begin to print their result notification slips.
“The results which had earlier been made available through text to candidates on request by them sending RESULT to “55019” but are now requesting for a printed version can now be printed free from the Board website: www.jamb.gov.ng,” the board said.
According to JAMB, all a candidate needs to do after visiting the site is to click on QUICK LINKS, then on “E-Facility” where the candidate would be required to provide his/her registration details and the result notification slip would be displayed for printing.
Sanctions on JAMB 2020 Result
Mr Benjamin said candidates are advised to note that any attempt to forge the slip would attract stiff sanctions.
“The decentralization of printing of result notification slips was done mainly to comply with the directives of the NCDC and other relevant agencies on social distancing,” he said.
The objective of JAMB is to conduct entrance Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for prospective undergraduates into Nigerian universities.
The board is also charged with the responsibility to administer similar examinations for applicants to Nigerian public and private monotechnics, polytechnics, and colleges of educations.
