JAMB’S OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON 2017 CUT OF MARKS
JAMB has stated that a meeting with officials will need to be conducted, after which the $Cut-Off Marks for 2017 #UTME will be announced.
No date has been announced for when the meeting will be conducted.
JAMB insists that it has not released the cut-off mark for the 2017 examination.
NAN reports that the Head, Media and Information, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made the clarification in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Tuesday.
He said that the policy committee meeting responsible for the determination of cut-off marks had not met.
According to him, it is in the best interest of candidates and other critical stakeholders to jettison cut-off marks for the various courses that are currently being paraded.
“We want to appeal to all candidates to jettison such speculations and engage themselves in more meaningful ventures that would add value to their future,” he said.
Benjamin said results of the just concluded 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination had since been released, with a few others still being previewed.
“We want to appeal to Nigerians to understand that such candidates whose results are being previewed may not necessarily have participated in any malpractice.
“But rather, centres where they sat for the examination had issues during the conduct of examination.
“These issues were reflected on the CCTV footage and this suggests why they must be carefully investigated before releasing such results,” he said
