Just Now: JAMB Releases Date To Announce 2022 Admission Cut Off Mark


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed June 16 to announce 2022 Admission Cut Off Mark and the 2022 admission policy meeting to kick-start the admission process into the nation’s tertiary institutions.

This is because the policy meeting where decisions and admission cut-off marks are not only taken but also decided has been fixed on that date.

The board’s weekly news bulletin released by the Head, Public Relations and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said already, the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, has approved Thursday, June 16, 2022, for the 2021 policy meeting.

The policy meeting which is always being chaired by the Minister of Education, will have all heads of tertiary institutions as well as heads of regulatory agencies in the sector, and other critical stakeholders, such as chairmen of the committees on education at the lower and upper chambers of the National Assembly in attendance.

The bulletin read:  “This meeting kick-starts the admission process into the nation’s tertiary institutions. It will discuss critical issues emanating from the presentation of the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, and Direct Entry applications, in addition to setting the tone for the 2022/2023 admission exercise.

“The meeting is expected to chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines and present application statistics, candidates’ performance as well as evaluate the 2021 admission exercise.

“The meeting, in addition to other deliberations, would take a stand on acceptable minimum admissions standards to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

“Given the critical nature of the decisions to be taken at the meeting, it would be streamed live on the Board’s website,, on its Facebook handle “@JAMBULLETIN” and other social media platforms.”

JAMB, however, warned tertiary institutions against going ahead with admission before the meeting is

“The Board makes it clear that it is an abuse of process for any institution to commence any admission exercise before this meeting as it is this forum that gives this authorisation,” it warned.


Many Jamb Candidates, still looking for Admission sometimes don’t know what Jamb Cut off mark implies. But in this section I will be explaining what explaining what Jamb Cut off is.

JAMB CUT OFF MARK is simply a universal average score a candidate needs to get admission into university, Polytechnics or college of Education. Jamb Cut off mark is usually different for University, polytechnic and college of Education. Jamb gives a higher cut off mark for University than polytechnic and college of Education.

It is also important to note that, if you pass the Jamb Cut off mark doesn’t mean you will get the course you are apply for in your school of choice, because after Jamb releases their cut off mark, Every school then goes and release a specify cut off for their school and by each departments too.

So jamb Cut off is basically for you to know wether you have hope of admission and application of screening/Post UTME for either university, polytechnic or college of education.
