According to NAN, The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it will hold its 2015 policy meeting on July 14, to determine cut-off marks for admission of candidates into tertiary institutions.
This was contained in a statement signed by Mr Fabian Benjamin, the board’s Public Relations Officer, and made available to newsmen yesterday in Lagos.
‘’The 2015 Policy Meeting which usually comes up with the cut-off point has been fixed for 14th July, 2015. This meeting defines criteria for the year’s admissions into higher institutions,’’ it said.
The statement said that the cut-off points are arrived at after extensive deliberations with vice-chancellors of universities, provosts of colleges of education, rectors of polytechnics, monotechnics as well as innovative enterprise institutions and other stakeholders.
It said the meeting is usually held after the schools have completed the Computer Based tests (CBT).
The statement said that the CBT had assisted the board to fight examination malpractice, just as it helped to address numerous challenges confronting the conduct of public examination in the country.
