Some aggrieved parents have taken to Lagos streets to  peacefully protest in front the University of Lagos over their decision to Up their Cut off marks. The University of Lagos recently announced it’s decision to increase the cut off mark for its post UTME exercise to 250. This goes against the cut off mark of 180 pegged by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

It is unclear as to why the University reached this decision, but parents as well as prospective students are coming together just outside the University gate to register their disapproval of the new development.

Read what the spokeman,  for JAMB Mr Benjamin said about the protest:


Following the rancour at the University of Lagos on Wednesday morning over admission scores, the spokesperson of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, Fabian Benjamin, has said universities are allowed to go above the National admission examination cut off mark.

JAMB had announced 180 as the cut off score for admission into degree programmes and 150 for national certificate in education, national diploma and national innovation diplomas.

Mr. Benjamin said a university, depending on its peculiarities , can raise its cut off mark above the national recommendation of 180.
