JAMB insists that it has not released the cut-off mark for the 2017 examination.
NAN reports that the Head, Media and Information, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made the clarification in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Tuesday.
He said that the policy committee meeting responsible for the determination of cut-off marks had not met.
According to him, it is in the best interest of candidates and other
critical stakeholders to jettison cut-off marks for the various courses
that are currently being paraded.
“We want to appeal to all candidates to jettison such speculations

Benjamin said results of the just concluded 2017 Unified Tertiary
Matriculation Examination had since been released, with a few others
still being previewed.
“We want to appeal to Nigerians to understand that such candidates
whose results are being previewed may not necessarily have participated
in any malpractice.
“But rather, centres where they sat for the examination had issues during the conduct of examination.
“These issues were reflected on the CCTV footage and this suggests
why they must be carefully investigated before releasing such results,”
