JAMB: Our Official Cut-off Mark Remains 200 – University of Ibadan

The management of the University of Ibadan (UI) has revealed that its official cut-off mark for 2019/2020 academic session remains 200.

You may recall that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had earlier met with stakeholders of higher institutions as both parties declared 160 as the cut-off mark for 2019/2020 university admission.

But, the University of Ibadan (UI) has stated that it will have nothing to do with the national minimum cut-off mark.

A statement released by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Idowu Olayinka reads:

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.
