Following the completion of the Joint Admission and matriculation board examination, candidates aspiring to badge a degree in the Nigerian learning institution have been eager to know this year’s JAMB cut off marks. Cut Off marks allows aspirants to know the category of Tertiary institution they will be walking into for their final screening test.
