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

Polytechnics would have accepted a lower JAMB Score, but Polytechnics do not offer Pharmacy.

But the likelihood of been admitted to study Pharmacy 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 Pharmacy, 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 (WAEC/NECO/NABTEB).

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

270 is a good JAMB Score to Study Pharmacy in any University in Nigeria.

With 270 and above as your JAMB Score, your chances of been admitted to study Pharmacy 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 Pharmacy

Universities use different method to compute student’s aggregate score for admission to study Pharmacy.

…while 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 constitute 50%, your JAMB Score will be divided by 8.

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

  • Your JAMB Score will be divided by 8, and your Post UTME divided by 2, to give your total average (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, JAMB will always carry bulk of the mark, that is why a high JAMB score is important to study competitive courses like Pharmacy.

If you score 270 in JAMB, dividing 270 by 8 would be 33.75, the departmental cut off mark for pharmacy is usually not less than 65 for most Universities
