The long awaited 2014 JAMB Cut off mark was yesterday announced after the 5th Combined Policy meeting on admissions to tertiary institutions, held at the National Universities Commission, Abuja.
The cut off marked for 2014 admissions into universities was fixed at 180, while that of polytechnics and colleges of education was fixed at 150.
The Supervising Minister of education, Nyesom Wike frowned at the fact that some institutions did not utilize fully the quota given to them last year which consequently denied some candidates admission. He described this a s a great disservice to the Nigerian child.
The JAMB Registrar, Dibu Ojerinde gave a statistical break down of candidates’ preference for tertiary education as follows; degree awarding institutions totalled 1,584,348, representing 70 per cent; National Certificate in Education applicants totalled 25,767 representing 1.6 per cent; National Diploma, a paltry 22,072, representing 1.3 per cent while National Innovation Diploma had just 46, representing 0.003 per cent.
