Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has approved the release of admission into Junior Secondary School (JSS) 1 of the 104 Federal Government colleges in the country.

The approval followed the 2018 selection exercise for placement of qualified candidates into JSS1 held across the country.

In a statement yesterday in Abuja, “The selection exercise employed the national merit criteria of 60 per cent with a cut-off score of 146 and above, and equality of state of 30 per cent of the colleges’ carrying capacity.

“Due to the effect of insecurity in the North East and North West zones of the country, which affected the filling of the colleges’ capacity, the minister has also approved for supplementary examination to be held tentatively on August 11, 2018, for such colleges to enable them fill their vacancies.

“Candidates are, therefore, requested to check their result at the Federal Ministry of Education, Abuja; all Federal Government Colleges and also online.”
