The management of the University of Ibadan has declared that the cut-off mark for the premier institution remains 200 as against 160 agreed on by the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) and stakeholders of higher institutions.
JAMB had announced on Tuesday at the 19th Policy Meeting on Admissions to Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria that cut-off mark for admission into federal universities will be 160 for 2019.
However, UI, on its part, said it will have nothing to do with the national minimum cut-off mark.
According to TheNation, the institution, in a statement by the office of its Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, said: “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.”
