According to Prof. Isaq Oloyede, JAMB registrar, JAMB is not responsible for the fixing of cut-off marks for tertiary institutions but rather a consensus between the institutions and stakeholders at the policy meeting.
Oloyede said institutions cannot fix cut-off marks below what the stakeholders decided at the policy meeting.
