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.
