The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has stated that the total fee to be paid by candidates of Post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Post UTME), should not exceed N2,000.
Disclosing this is the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, at the 2021 Policy Meeting held virtually on Tuesday, 31st August, warning institutions not to go beyond the pegged fee.
According to Oloyede: “Nobody should charge more than N2,000. The total gross is N2,000. It is not allowed by institutions to allow candidates to procure administrative charges.
“No institution is allowed to capture or demand any result upload. It is the one that we upload on caps that we will sent to all of you. The biometrics supplied by JAMB should be used for the exercise.”
In addition, JAMB released the approved cut-off marks proposed by Nigerian tertiary institutions for the 2021 admission.
This means that there will be no uniform cut-off marks for 2021/2022 admissions.
According to the new arrangement, universities are not allowed to go below 120, while polytechnics and colleges of education have a minimum cut-off mark of 100 for admission.
