The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board and Heads of Tertiary Institutions are expected to meet June 16 over cut-off marks and other guidelines for the 2020/2021 Admission exercise.
The exam body announced the 2020 Policy Meeting of tertiary institutions in its weekly bulletin obtained by our correspondent on Monday.
According to the bulletin, the policy meeting, which is expected to hold online, will be chaired by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.
The bulletin read in part, “Part of the protocols put in place by the government to curb the spread of COVID-19 requires that no gathering of persons exceeding the prescribed number.
“Compliance with this directive has become imperative as no fewer than 4,000 Heads of Tertiary Institutions comprising Degree, Diploma, NCE, and NID-awarding institutions and other stakeholders would normally be expected to congregate at a location but because of extant protocols, they would now be expected to participate in the virtual meeting.
“The meeting will discuss critical issues bordering on the advances made in the educational sector in the last one year in addition to setting the tone for the 2020/2021 Admission exercise.
“The meeting will also chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines, and make a holistic review of application statistics, performance as well as evaluate the 2019 admissions exercise.
“The meeting, in addition to other deliberations, would take a stand on concessional and acceptable minimum admissions standards to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.”
