The SERAP is seeking to stop JAMB, UNILAG and others from what it described  as “outrageous cut-off marks decisions”.

The suit number FHC/L/CS/1139/2015 filed today at the Federal High Courtby Adetokunbo Mumuni on behalf of SERAP and three applicants affected by the cut-off marks decision.

It would be recalled that JAMB had announced a reduction in its cut-off mark of 180 for students seeking admission into Nigerian universities, only to approve a 250 cut-off mark set by UNILAG.

The move caused protests from aggrieved parents who challenged the decision of  the examination body on the grounds that it was improper.
