JAMB Cut Off Mark For All courses

No fixed Cut Off mark for courses, the only Cut off mark for the various courses are decided by Schools and not JAMB, you can see the difference between JAMB and School Cut off mark for details.

Let us look at an example, JAMB cut off mark for UNIBEN is 200, but the Departmental Cut off Mark for Medicine and Surgery and Pharmacy is not 200

…so scoring 200 in JAMB will only allow you participate in UNIBEN Post UTME, but been offered admission to study Pharmacy or Medicine as a course is close to impossible with that JAMB score.

This is because, the departmental Cut off mark for these Courses is dependent on both your JAMB Score and Post UTME score.

Wrapping Up

JAMB cut off mark is 140 for Universities and 100 for both Polytechnics and Colleges of education, Schools can set their Cut off mark above this but not less.

This will be all for now, I understand you may have a question or two to ask, feel free to drop them using the comment box below!

  1. Why is it the federals and states cut off mark is the same thing it has to difference.
    What about the students scored 160 and above.

    1. For JAMB there are three levels for tertiary education learning, which are; Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education and not as private or government owned.

      The cut off mark approved by JAMB is the minimum score schools are allowed to accept, and yes, the school has the prerogative to increase it but definitely not to reduce it.

  2. Why would the state’s University’s and the Federal University’s have the same cut off Mark.

    What about those that scored up to 170?

    This is not right, The State’s University’s And Federal University’s are not supposed to be the thing.

    All fingers are not equal naaa.
