Idon’t support this drastic reduction of cut-off marks by JAMB. They have slashed the points too low for competence and merit. I have a son who wrote JAMB this year and got 140 points and was not admitted because his points are lower than the requirements. I was not satisfied when he got 140 at that time but now that they have slashed the points, they have given room for all sorts of people to flood our higher institutions. We believe that the standard of education is going low due to many factors, so with this, we will witness another downward trend in the performance of students. I had expected JAMB to raise the cut-off points for admission into courses like Medicine, Pharmacy, Engineering and Law courses.
