Now here is the thing, some Universities would like to set their Jamb Cut off mark as low as possible, especially those Universities that are not competitive, and by so doing, accommodating as much student as they can.

This is completely understandable, since these schools are not competitive why not open to floor to those students who for one reason or the other, could not score as high as they would want to.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), in a bid to prevent some schools from setting their Cut off mark below certain limit, like 90, 100, 120, the board every year sits for a meeting with all School’s represented, it is at this meeting the decision of the minimum cut off mark for that year is decided.

Jamb policy meeting
Jamb’s Policy meeting held in 2021

This meeting is called “Jamb’s Policy meeting“. It is at this meeting the general minimum cut off mark for all Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education would be determined, the Cut off mark decided here , is based on the overall performance of student in the Concluded Jamb for that year.

So, it is possible that, Jamb Cut Off Mark for 2021/2022 Admission exercise will not be the same with that for this year’s Jamb (2022/2023 Admission), this meeting is usually held few weeks after Jamb result for that year is released.

DISCLAIMER: Since Jamb’s Policy meeting for 2022/2023 Admission exercise has not taken place, the Cut off mark I will be providing you with in this post is that for Last Year. I will update this content the moment that for this year is released.

Now that we have understood the idea behind Jamb’s Cut off mark, we can now begin the topic properly… ENJOY!

Jamb Cut Off Mark For All courses

There is no fixed Jamb 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.

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

How To Calculate Aggregate Score For Courses

To calculate your aggregate, you will divide your Jamb Score by 8 and your post Utme score by 2, then we can say that your aggregate score is the summation of your Jamb score divided by 8 and your post utme score divided by 2.

Lets say, a student who wishes to study pharmacy in Unilag scored 270 in jamb and then 80 in Post Utme, the aggregate score can then be calculate as thus;

270/8 + 80/2 = 33.75 + 40

Making the student’s aggregate score 73.75

So you see that the higher your Jamb and Post Utme score the higher your average aggregate score.

This aggregate score is different for all Institutions, soon I will be updating you with Aggregate score for all courses in Nigerian Universities… Keep in touch.

Mind You: Post UTME is not the way to get aggregate, Some Universities like AAU use O’ level to compute aggregate score for Students.
