VCs,ASUU reject 120 Jamb cut-off mark

SOME Vice-Chancellors and the Academic Staff Union of Universities have rejected the decision of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to peg admission cut-off mark at 120 for universities and 100 for polytechnics,and colleges of education.

ASUU said the action,which it described as a “sad policy decision,”was in tandem “with the dream of the present government to destroy public universities in the country.”Most of the vice-chancellors our correspondents interviewed on the issue maintained that they would not lower admission standards in their respective varsities.

The vice-chancellors stated that the decision would add no value to the nation’s university system.For instance,in a statement issued by the Vice-Chancellor,University of Ibadan,Prof.Idowu Olayinka,on the issue and released by his Media Assistant,Mr.Sunday Saanu,on Thursday,the premier university stated that it would never admit any candidate that scored 120 in the UTME.
