The permanent secretary of the Ministry of Education, McJohn Nwaoibala, has said that admissions processes into higher institutions in Nigeria will round off on October 31.

Mr. Nwaoibala gave the directive on Tuesday at the 2015 combined policy meeting, shortly after he pronounced the 2015 cut-off mark for admission into degree programmes, national certificate in education, national diploma and national innovation diplomas.
“We need to make hay while the sun shines. All admissions processes should be concluded on or before 31st of October 2015,”he said.
Mr. Nwaoibala said that the 150 and 180 cut-off marks were adopted by JAMB as the minimum score to degree and diploma awarding institution respectively.
He said the Federal government mandated the various institutions to strictly adhere to the 60:40 sciences to arts ratio, and the 70:30 technology to non-technology ratio.
He added that the states and privately owned tertiary institution should apply the criteria as approved by their authorities.
Meanwhile, the chairman governing board of JAMB, Peter Eze, said he is pleased with JAMB’s transition from the traditional paper and pencil test to the Computer Based Test.

“We can be counted as one of the top 10 in the world as far as conducting public exams is concerned,” he said.
Mr. Eze noted that the transition to CBT is a firm commitment by JAMB to ensure that the best practices in the mode of assessment in other for Nigerian youth to be attached with their counterpart all over the world.
