    House Of Reps To Investigate JAMB Cut Off Marks

    Nigeria’s house of representatives has mandated its committee on tertiary education and services to investigate the circumstances that led to the reduction in the cut off marks for admission into tertiary institutions.

    The move followed the public outcry over the recent reduction in the cut-off marks for admissions into tertiary institutions in the country.
    The lawmakers noted that the recent policy pronouncement by the jamb Registrar Professor Ishaq Oloyede on the reduction of cut off marks from 180 to 120 for university admission and from 165 to 100 for polytechnics and colleges of education was capable of lowering the standards of education in Nigeria.
    The lawmakers therefore want to know reasons for the sudden reduction when majority of the candidates that sat for the examination scored above 200 marks.
    The house in another motion called for the reintroduction of technical and vocational education in Nigeria to create more employment opportunities for the youth.
