The decision was reached on Tuesday at the 19th policy meeting on admissions to Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria, held at the Bola Babalakin auditorium, Gbongan, Osun state.
The policy meeting, which was presided by Isaq Oloyede, JAMB registrar, and attended by other stakeholders in the education sector, also approved
160 for Universities, 140 for private universities, 120 for Polytechnics, 110 private polytechnics and100 Colleges of Education
The UTME is scored on a total of 400.
At the meeting, December 19, was approved for the closure of admission into public universities, while February 15, 2020, for private universities.
Oloyede also said that admission into all universities would be conducted on Central Admission Processing System (CAPS).
He said JAMB is not responsible for the fixing of cut-off marks for tertiary institutions but rather a consensus between the institutions and stakeholders at the policy meeting.
Oloyede said institutions cannot fix cut-off marks below what the stakeholders decided at the policy meeting.
The exam body had earlier cautioned candidates to beware of rumours that the board had released its official cut-off mark.
