Disregard cut-off marks circulating on social media, JAMB says

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has disclaimed admission cut-off marks circulating on social media, asking higher institution admission seekers to disregard them.

The board said it was yet to release the cut-off marks for 2020 admissions, saying the ones in circulation were from fraudsters who in their usual ways,were out to dupe unsuspecting admission seekers.

JAMB also said it had reinforced its Central Admission Processing System, CAPS, mobile app to enable candidates access to information regarding admission-related issues in the comfort of their homes without visiting any Computer-Based Test,CBT centres or cyber cafe

The board in a statement released by its Head of Media and Information,Dr Fabian Benjamin, yesterday, insisted that the cut-off marks were fake, asking candidates to be wary of the antics of fraudsters.

Jamb disclosed that the 2020 cut-off marks would be decided at a stakeholders policy meeting slated for June 15 and 16, 2020, and expected to be presided by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
