Authorities of the University of Ibadan (UI) has distanced the university from the controversial 250 JAMB Cut-off mark.
It would be recalled that on Wednesday, applicants billed to participate in UNILAG’s 2015/2016 post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (post-UTME), protested the sudden change of the school’s cut-off mark from 200 to 250, saying that they were shocked to learn of the change at the point of registering for the screening test billed to hold on August 12 and 13.
Other Federal universities referred to as most sought after schools said to also have increased their JAMB cut-off mark from 200 to 250 were the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ife, Osun State, University of Ibadan (UI), Oyo State, University of Illorin (UNILORIN), Kwara State, and University of Nigeria (UNN), Nsukka, Enugu State.
But in a swift reaction, Vice Chancellor, UI, Professor Isaac Adewole, told our correspondent that “Our JAMB cut-off point to qualify candidates for post-UTME in University of Ibadan is still 200. We will use that in conjunction with the post-UTME scores of candidates to give them admission into our school.”
Candidates who chose the University of Ibadan as their first choice and score a minimum of 200 and above in the 2015 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) are qualified to participate in the 2015/2016 Post-UTME screening exercise.
