The Federal Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME, as a pre-condition to gaining admission into universities in the country has been scrapped by the Federal Government. 
180 was also pegged as the  benchmark for 2016 admission into universities, polytechnics and colleges of education to improve quality of education in Nigeria.
‎The decisions were taken at the 2016 Combined Policy Meeting on Admissions to Universities, Polytechnics and other higher institutions in Nigeria.
The Minister of Education ,  Malam Adamu Adamu, while declaring open ‎the meeting, said since the federal government and stakeholders had confidence in the examinations conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriulation Board, JAMB,hence, the scrapping of post UTME. 
He said: “As far as I am concerned, the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing, the universities should not be holding another examinations and if the universities have any complain against JAMB, let them bring it and then we address it.
”But if JAMB is qualified enough to conduct tests and they have conducted test, then there will be no need to conduct another test for students to gain admission.
