The Registrar of the board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this during a presentation at the 2023 Policy Meeting on Admissions to Tertiary Institutions and awards on Saturday in Abuja.

Oloyede said 100 had been approved as a cut off mark into Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.

He explained that the aforementioned points were the minimum, but that does not mean that institutions must comply with it.

Oloyede also revealed that the University of Ilorin and the University of Lagos top the list of most sought after universities for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations.

According to a presentation made by the Registrar during the 2023 policy meeting, top 10 institutions were recognised due to the attraction of a high number of applicants during the 2023 UTME application period.

In the list, the University of Ilorin was first, followed by the University of Lagos in second place, Lagos State University in third place, Federal University, Oye-Ekiti in fourth place.

Others in the top 10 are University of Benin, University of Nigeria, Obafemi Awolowo University, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nigerian Defence Academy and the University of Ibadan.
