The new JAMB cut off mark has nothing to do with educational standard. It's all about exploitation, says Obi Trice Emeka on his facebook wall

He alleged that the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has bowed to the greed of the Vice Chancellor of Nigerian Universities. 

According to him, "the plan is simple: re-introduce P-UTME but make the fee low and for them to make more revenue while charging lower fees they have to increase the numbers.

"That's the whole plan of the reduced cut off mark. At 120, more applicants will purchase P-UTME forms of different universities with the false hope of admission which will never be. 

"They're just being set up for exploitation. Within, the faculty, admission boards will still favour students with higher JAMB scores as against those with lower marks.

"If JAMB is no longer interested in performing her duty she should give way for the universities to solely determine their basic requirements for issuing an admission. It's madness to have duel entrance examination for tertiary education."

HOMELAND NEWS cannot independently verify the credibility of this claim but because there is no other reason for the dramatic reduction in the cut-off mark from 200 to 120, Obi Trice Emeka's view should be given a chance to stand.
