Today, the Federal Government of Nigeria has scrapped the conduct of post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) for candidates seeking admission into higher institutions.
This was revealed by Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, in Abuja. According to his words: “As far as I am concerned the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing. The universities should not be holding another examination and if the universities have any complain against JAMB let them bring it and then we address it.
.If JAMB is qualified enough to conduct tests and they have conducted test then there will be no need to conduct another test for students to gain admission.”
He also asked the JAMB to stop extra charges on several categories of changes on admissions such as the change of course, change of school and others.
The Nation also reported that JAMB’s cut – off mark for admission for 2016 is 180.
