|Educationist advises JAMB to have same cut-off|
- Says JAMB should embrace uniform cut-off marks of admissions into tertiary institutions in the country.
Onyechere, in an interview with newsmen has called for uniform cut-off
mark of admissions into tertiary institutions in the country.
He also said that the idea of choosing candidates for admission because
they are from educationally advantaged and educationally disadvantaged
states should be removed by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board
“If you look at it, Akwa Ibom was carved out from Cross River and Akwa
Ibom is listed as educationally advantaged state while Cross River is
catgorised as an educationally disadvantaged state.”
“In other words, the candidates from Cross River will have a lower
cut-off mark than candidates from Akwa Ibom. For me, it doesn’t make
sense.” He explained that most of the states listed as educationally
disadvantaged had more Federal Government institutions than states
listed as educationally advantaged.”
“Kaduna State has over 20 Federal Government educational institutions
but it is being categorised as educationally disadvantaged.”
