*cut-off mark pegged at 180 for 2016 admission
The Presidency has scrapped the Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for candidates seeking admission into universities and other higher institutions of learning in the country.
Also, the joint admission matriculation admission board (JAMB) has pegged the cut-off mark for the 2016 admission into universities, polytechnics, colleges of education and monotechnics at 180.
Education Minister, Mallam Adamu Adamu, announced the scrapping of the Post-UTME at the 2016 combined policy meeting on admission into universities, polytechnics and other high institutions of learning in Abuja.
He said there is no need for higher institutions of learning to conduct any other examination for candidates after the UTME conducted by jamb.
The minister also directed jamb to stop extra charges on issues such as change of courses and schools by candidates.
Also speaking at the meeting JAMB registrar, Professor Dibu Ojerinde, said no higher institution would go below 180 cut-off mark for admission this year, but said top universities could go above 180 cut-off mark
