The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the cut-off marks for admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions for the 2023 academic session. According to JAMB, the minimum score required for admission into Nigerian universities is 140 points, while the minimum cut-off marks for polytechnics and colleges of education are set at 100 points.

However, JAMB has made it clear that the cut-off marks are only minimum requirements, and institutions are free to conduct their own screening exercises, provided that the charge for the screening does not exceed N2,000. It is also not allowed for institutions to impose additional expenses on candidates, such as administrative and bank charges.

To ensure the authenticity of the screening process, JAMB will provide institutions with access to photo images and fingerprint data of candidates, to prevent the substitution of candidates who did not sit for the examination.

In summary, the 2023 admission cut-off marks for Nigerian universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education have been released, with minimum scores set at 140 and 100 points, respectively. However, institutions are not obliged to comply with these minimum scores, and can conduct their own screening exercises as long as they do not charge more than N2,000.
