• The National Universities Commission has abolished the award of Pass Degree in Nigerian Universities with effect from the 2013/2014 academic session.

    Prof. Abdullahi Zuru, the Vice Chancellor of Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto, who disclosed this on Wednesday said: “This has far reaching implications on the grading system of students in universities.

    “This means that the minimum pass mark for courses in the universities will now be 45 per cent, that is, D-grade, instead of the previous 40 per cent which was E-grade.

    “It also means that the minimum class of degree to be earned by students will now be Third Class,” he said.

    According to him, no university student will henceforth graduate with a Pass Degree.

    Prof. Zuru therefore enjoined the students to work hard to earn their stay in the university.
