Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof Ishaq Oloyede has disclosed that 414,696 candidates, out of the 1,603,181 who sat for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, scored above 200.
He said this translates to 25.09 per cent against the 465,025 (27.00 per cent) of the 1,606,374 who scored above 200 in 2017.
Oloyede spoke on Tuesday during the Policy Meeting held at Gbongan, Osun State.
The JAMB boss, however, said that 558,673 candidates scored above 190; 739,490 above 180 and 956, 937 above 170 marks.
On other regulations guiding the process, he said: “Every candidate is required to accept or reject his/her admission before the process is said to be completed.
“Candidates can now protest their admission status should they feel they are not fairly treated.”
Meanwhile, the Federal Government has warned that it would sanction any tertiary institution which charges more than N2,000 for Post-UTME.
