JAMB Cut Off Mark For Computer Science

One of the many requirements to studying Computer Science in any University in Nigeria is meeting up with the required JAMB Cut off Mark, if you have seen my blog post on the list of Most Competitive courses in JAMB, you will see that Computer Science comfortably sits at the number Eight (8th) position.

Computer Science is highly sought after by students aspiring to gain admission in Nigeria, when over 2000 students apply to study Computer Science and only few of these students would be admitted.

The only thing that can boost your Chances of getting admitted to study Computer Science is how high your JAMB score is, but then, there is a minimum JAMB score you have to score before you can be eligible to continue with the next phase of your admission processing.

So, technically, there are two things to concern ourselves with when we talk about JAMB Cut off mark for Computer Science, the first is the cut off mark for Computer Science that will allow you move to the next stage (POST UTME enrolment), the other thing of interest Is JAMB Cut off Mark for Computer Science that can guarantee you admission to study Computer Science.

These two things are not the same, I know you may be tempted to ask; what are the differences between these two?

Well, the first which is JAMB Cut off mark that will allow you sit for Post UTME is the same for all courses based on the School in question

…on the other hand, JAMB Cut off mark that can guarantee you admission to study Computer Science is not the same for all Courses and Universities

P.S; JAMB Cut Off Mark For All Schools And Courses

You see the difference now, at the end of this article you will understand better and be well endowed with the necessary information

JAMB Cut Off Mark for Computer Science to participate is 200. Some Universities accept less, but the least any University would accept for this course is 140.

Polytechnics accept a lower JAMB Score for Computer Science, so if you scored lower than this, you can either apply to a private university or a Polytechnic that offers this course.

The likelihood of been admitted to study Computer Science with a JAMB Score of 200 or 180 is very thin

This do not mean that with a low JAMB score you can’t be admitted, you still can, because your JAMB score only make up 50% of your aggregate.

The other 50% is from your Post UTME, O’ level or both, depending on the University’s aggregate grading system.

So, a low JAMB Score can be compensated with a high performance in Post UTME or O’level exams (Waec/NECO/Nabteb).

Since JAMB makes 50% of your admission requirements, certain JAMB scores can increase your chances of gaining admission to 70%

JAMB Cut Off Mark For Computer Science That Guarantees Admission

250 is a good JAMB Score to Study Computer Science in any University in Nigeria.

…with 250+ your chances of admission is Juicy

How To Calculate Your Aggregate Score For Computer Science

Different Universities use different method to compute student’s aggregate score for admission into the department of Computer Science

…while some Universities use Both JAMB and Post UTME, some use JAMB and O’ level while others use JAMB, Post UTME and O’ level Result, to calculate student admission aggregate.

Irrespective of the method used, your JAMB Score still constitute at least 50%, in most cases JAMB score will be divided by 8.

Average for Computer Science is calculated thus👇

  • Your JAMB Score will be divided by 8, and your Post UTME divided by 2, to give you your total average (this is only applicable for schools using Post UTME and JAMB)
  • JAMB Score divided by 8, plus Post UTME 30% and O’ level 20% (for Schools using O’ level, Post utme and JAMB)
  • JAMB Score divided by 8 + O’level making the remaining 50%

From the calculation pattern above, you will see that, your JAMB score will always carry bulk of the mark, that is why a high JAMB score is important to study competitive courses like Computer Science.

If you score 250 in JAMB, dividing 250 by 8 would be 31.25, the departmental cut off mark for Computer Science is usually not less than 55 for most Universities

P.S; See the differences between JAMB and school Cut off mark.

You will only need to put in moderate effort to achieve this with a JAMB score of 250.

In Conclusion

A JAMB Score of 250 and above is good enough to secure admission in any University in Nigeria to Study Computer Science.
