In order for 2020/2021 to begin the admissions session, the Federal Government directed the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and tertiary institutions.
This was part of the Education Minister Mallam Adamu Adamu’s remarks at the Nigerian Tertiary Institutions Admissions Policy Meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.
Adamu, represented by the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, urged JAMB and tertiary institutions to consider candidates with last year’s Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) and other qualifying results.
“JAMB and tertiary institutions could take advantage of the current situation and consider candidates with previous years Senior School Certificate Examination and other qualifying results to proceed on with the admission process.
“Whatever arrangement that the country comes up within the long-run will surely accommodate those who will be taking the examination when the opportunity to do so is worked out,” he said.
TrueTalk reported the current JAMB 2020 Cut-Off Mark for all Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges as agreed during the policy meeting on June 16.
Admission processes are expected to begin in August, based on the guidelines released by JAMB. About 612,557 students were offered admission in 2019.
