According to the new arrangement, universities are not allowed to go below 120 and polytechnics and colleges of education, 100 for admission.
The meeting agreed that the total fee for Post – Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination fee should not be more than N2, 000.

He said: “Nobody should charge more than N2,000. The total gross is N2, 000. It is not allowed by institutions to allow candidates to procure administrative charges.
“No institution is allowed to capture or demand any result upload. It is the one that we upload on caps that we will send to all of you. The biometrics supplied by jamb should be used for the exercise.”
