The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has approved 160 as cut-off mark for 2020/2021 university admissions.
The board also approved 120 as cut-off marks for Polytechnic and 100 for College of Education and Innovative institutions.
Registrar, JAMB, Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this on Tuesday during the 2020 policy meeting on admissions to tertiary institutions which was held virtually.
Mr Oloyede cautioned management of universities not to charge above N2000 for admission screening.
The registrar further informed that a total of 612, 557 candidates were offered admission in 2019 and about 510,957 admission spaces were unused by tertiary institutions in 2019.
He noted that only 1,157,977 candidates had the required five credits with English and Mathematics that sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations last year.
