The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced names of some universities that will not offer admission to candidates that score less than 200.

They include:-

University of Lagos, University of Ibadan, Covenant University, Obafemi Awolowo University and University of Benin.

This was made known via a statement signed by JAMB’s spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, on Monday in Abuja.

Fabian further listed higher institutions that will not admit candidates that scored less than 180 in its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) this year.

“For the 2020 admission exercise, for example, no candidate with a UTME score of 209 can be considered for admission into any programme at PAU whose minimum UTME score is 210.

“Also, no candidate with a UTME score of 199 can be admitted into any of the following universities whose minimum score is 200: OAU, UI, CU, UNILAG and UNIBEN.

“No candidate with a score less than 180 can be admitted into many of the universities including Lagos State University (190); Afe Babalola University (180), Nigerian Army University, Biu (180); University of Jos (180), University of Abuja (180), Redeemers University (180), University of Ilorin (180), Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria (180), Bayero University Kano (180), Alex Ekwueme University (180) and PAMO University of Medical Sciences, Port Harcourt (180),” Fabian said.

He also emphasized that high scores in UTME might not be enough to secure admissions.

From what we gathered via Fabian, institutions are free to decide their own cut-off points, based on certain conditions approved by JAMB.

Other parameters such as Post-UTME/post-A/L qualifications screening/test score; O/L grade score, etc will be used.

The statement concluded that the quota system and catchment area are also considered during the admission process.
