Jamb Cutoff of 120 for varsities is ridiculous - Asingba Samuel



Several scholars have shown displeasure to why the 2017 Jamb Cutoff mark for universities was dropped to 120. And yes of course BNL Newspaper isn't left out.

It's owner expressed deep sadness that the cutoff marks for universities are set at 120.

In an interview with Asingba Samuel on Friday 25/08/2017,  he said “Why would cut offs be dropped to as low as 120, Very few people made it to the 180 initial cut off but what happened to 150 or above that cutoff for varsities are dropped to as low as 120”

Speaking further he said “Nigeria is becoming a Joke, this is the least in the history of the Nigerian educational system and it's a big blow to our educational standards”
“Degrees awarded by Nigerian universities has very low respect outside the country, meaning the system is already experiencing a little level of rejection, the process is being questioned and yet cut offs are dropped to a ridiculous 120”.

“Will this act of consideration, because i know that's what they're trying to do - ‘Help the majority who couldn't make it’ strengthen our educational system??”

“The most annoying part is, major voices in the system are saying nothing as our educational system had been plunge down to almost nothing” - He added.

He also said - “Nigerian universities are already over admitting, yet we're pushing more and more people into the system and no extra effort is put to handle this people”.

In fact Adding POST UTME into the process wouldn't still help with a cutoff already at 120.

Jamb and it's officials and the professors who made such a decision should go back to their drawing board and see if they can amend this already cracking system than help break it.
