Admission processes are expected to commence by August based on the guideline released by the Joint Admission And Matriculation Board.

He said: “One of the decisions taken was that universities will have minimum score point of UTME as decided by each of the universities

”For the polytechnics and colleges of education, it is also as decided by each of the institutions except that no institution would be allowed to admit a candidate for universities if you have scored less than 160 in UTME but that is not the only thing that will be taken for admission.

The Education Minister who was represented by the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, urged JAMB and tertiary institutions to consider candidates with previous years' Senior School Certificate Examination and other qualifying results, to proceed with the admission process. He said the government will make an arrangement that will accommodate applicants who will be taking the examination when the opportunity to do so is worked out.
