NANS Objects New JAMB Cut-Off Mark

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) refuses to concur to the revised cut-off mark JAMB posed from 180 for universities and 165 for polytechnics to 120 and 100 respectively.

This turn has since received mixed reactions as the NANS President, Chinonso Obasi termed the decision as “a gross misplacement of priority and exercise in futility”.

According to Obasi, knowledge acquisition is a function of determination and hard work, adding that if over the years, students were able to work hard to meet cut-off points, it doesn’t make any logical sense to now lower the standard.

He insisted that the inability of any student to meet the cut-off points is a function of outright indolence that should not be encouraged.
