Minister Of Education Approves Cut Off Marks For Universities

The Federal Government, through the minister of Education, on Tuesday approved the cut-off marks for admission into tertiary institutions for the 2013/2014 academic session.

The Minister of Education, Ruqayyatu Rufa’i, announced the cut-off marks into the Colleges of Education, Polytechnics and other degree-awarding institutions in Abuja. She gives the cut off marks as:
180 for federal universities and 150 for polytechnics and others.

Rufa’i said this at the Fourth Combined Policy Meeting on Admission to Degree-Awarding Institutions, National Diploma (ND), Nigeria Certificate in Education (NCE) and National Innovation Diploma (NID) awarding institutions.

“I implore all stakeholders to follow the Federal Government’s guidelines on admission which stipulates a 70:30 Technology/Non-Technology ratio for ND programmes.

“Also, 60:40 Science/Arts ratio for Degree and Nigeria Certificate in Education programmes and also to observe the criteria on merit, catchments and educationally less developed states. In addition, we must not forget the carrying-capacity of our institutions as approved by the accrediting bodies," she said.

The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, added: “Let me remind all the federal institutions that the ratio of 45:35:20 for merit, catchment and educationally less-developed states, respectively, is still in force and should be adhered to strictly to ensure national cohesion.

“All Nigerians must be given the opportunity to mix and educate freely in any part of the country."
