JAMB Cut Off Mark for Law to participate in Post UTME is 200. Some Universities accept less, but the least any University would accept for Law to qualify for Post UTME is 140.

Polytechnics would have accepted a lower JAMB Score for Law, but unfortunately Polytechnics do not offer this course.

But the likelihood of been admitted to study Law with a JAMB Score of 200 or 180 (depending on the University) is very thin, on a scale of 1 to 10 would be 2.

The chances are quite low right?

…but that do not mean that with a Score of, lets say 215 you cannot be admitted to study Law, you still can, because your JAMB Score only make up 50% of your Admission requirements.

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.

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 Law That Guarantees Admission

280 is a good enough JAMB Score to Study Law in any University in Nigeria.

With 280 and above as your JAMB Score, your chances of been admitted to study Law in any University of your Choice is quite Juicy (70%).

I will explain the reasons for this when I show you how schools calculate aggregate score for Admission shortly.

How To Calculate Your Aggregate Score For Law

Different Universities use different method to compute student’s aggregate score for admission to Law

Some Universities use Both JAMB and Post UTME (like the University of Benin), some use JAMB and O’ level (University of AAU) while others use JAMB, Post UTME and O’ level Result *Like University of Lagos, to calculate student admission aggregate.

Irrespective of the pattern your school of choice adopts for calculating aggregate score for students, your JAMB Score will still make up 50%, your JAMB Score will be divided by 8.

Here is how your average for Law is calculated using your JAMB Score…

  • 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 Law.

If you score 280 in JAMB, dividing 280 by 8 would be 35, the departmental cut off mark for Law is usually not less than 70 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 280.

In Conclusion

A JAMB Score of 280 and above is good enough to secure admission in any University in Nigeria to Study Law.

  1. Good day sir/ma.
    I scored 236 in Jamb and I applied for law, my first choice was Obafemi Awolowo University.
    Can I actually use my jamb score to study law in OAU?

    • Hey Oluchi, 223 is too low to study low, although you can increase your chances by excelling in your Post UTME (that is if the school you applied to organize Post UTME Exam) but this is not an easy feat.

      To be on a safe side, you may want to change course to a less competitive one to increase your chances

  2. I got 240 in jamb is there any university I can apply to that would take me and I also got 3.6 in Diploma in law if I want to do direct entry is there any university including private ones that would take me?

  3. If cut off mark for law is 280 and you score 220 in jamb, probably if you sit for post utme and score 60, I think what they will do,is to calculate both what you score in jamb +post utme to get that =280 cut off mark!!!.
    I hope that’s how they use to calculate it abi??
