Re­duc­ing cut-off marks for ad­mis­sion into uni­ver­si­ties and other higher in­sti­tu­tions has both ad­van­tages and dis­ad­van­tages. The main ad­van­tage is that it will give op­por­tu­nity to peo­ple who hith­erto can­not get the max­i­mum points to en­ter uni­ver­si­ties to get ad­mit­ted. On the other hand, many peo­ple who are not fit may flood the uni­ver­si­ties. Poly­tech­nics and Col­leges of Ed­u­ca­tion will also be placed at a dis­ad­van­taged po­si­tion be­cause many will not ap­ply for them since the cut-off marks for ad­mis­sion into uni­ver­si­ties has been low­ered, uni­ver­si­ties and poly­tech­nics should also be al­lowed to put in some mech­a­nisms to screen the stu­dents and not just to al­low in­com­pe­tent in­di­vid­u­als into their in­sti­tu­tions be­cause of the points they got in their JAMB ex­am­i­na­tion.
