Mallam Adamu Adamu

The Federal Government has scrapped the conduct of post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) for candidates seeking admission into higher institution across the country.

Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, said this on Thursday in Abuja after declaring open the 2016 Combined Policy Meeting on Admissions to Universities, Polytechnics and other institutions.

Minister Adamu expressed confidence in the examination conducted by JAMB and added that there was no need for other examination to be conducted by universities after JAMB.

He said: “As far as I am concerned the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing.

The universities should not be holding another examination and if the universities have any complain against JAMB let them bring it and then we address it.

“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.”

The Minister also asked the JAMB to stop extra charges on several categories of changes on admissions such as the change of course, change of school and others.

Meanwhile, the JAMB has pegged the cut – off mark for admission for 2016 at 180.

The 180 benchmark, applies to all universities and higher institutions in the country, including polytechnics, colleges of education, and others.



  1. For what Mr Adamu said that after JAMB,that there should be no other exam again, is a very nice idea because a JAMB candidate will have a quarter point to any institution, but it will not admitted into any of the institution in Nigeria, because of the APTITUDE TEST conducted by the school so if that idea should be considered. A very big thank to MR ADAMU and his cabinet.

  2. This is a very good ideal , At least it will help many student gain admission into the university and save student from exam stress.
