The information below was released by JAMB through their twitter handle to both UTME and DE candidates. This was done to allay the fear of the public about the cut off mark which was released (160). And to give assurance to those that score higher marks.

Candidates with higher marks will be considered first. Institutions will still admit using established criteria of merit and others. Institutions will still admit using established criteria of merit and others.

The 160 cut off mark doesn’t mean an automatic ticket for admission.

Candidates with correction of data and Regularization issues should confirm that their indemnity form is sent to the nearest JAMB office.

However the Minister would certainly direct the refund for candidates who have paid more than the directed N2000.

We strongly advise against changing to any Institution whose portal is closed for PUTME.

For UTME students, all you have to do is to prepare for your post-UTME test or screening. Visit your school portal for information regarding post-UTME screening.

Information on ePINS

Our Attention of has been drawn to cases of candidates who have bought ePINS and were not able to proceed with their registration.

1. This was caused essentially by A very high rate of candidates buying ePINS without creating their profile first.
