JAMB Cut Off Mark for Private Universities in Nigeria
Private Universities usually adhere to the minimum Cut off Mark set by JAMB, which is 140.
JAMB Cut Off Mark For Polytechnics
The JAMB Cut Off Mark for Polytechnics in Nigeria for the 2022/2023 academic session is 100. Hence, no Polytechnic in Nigeria should set their admission Cut off mark below 100.
Polytechnics are allowed to set their admission score higher than 100, but not lower.
JAMB Cut Off Mark For Colleges of Education
The JAMB Cut Off Mark for Colleges of Education in Nigeria is 100. This minimum cut off mark is also shared with polytechnics. Therefore, no College of Education or polytechnic in Nigeria is expected to set their Cut off mark for admission below 100.
College of Education can set their Score above 100 but not below.
JAMB Cut Off Mark For All courses
There is no fixed JAMB cut off mark for courses. Schools, not JAMB, decide on the minimum cut off mark for various courses. For example, while UNIBEN’s JAMB cut off mark is 200, the Departmental Cut off Marks for Medicine and Surgery and Pharmacy are not 200.
Therefore, scoring 200 in JAMB only allows you to participate in UNIBEN Post UTME, but it is unlikely to be admitted to study Pharmacy or Medicine with that JAMB score. Departmental cut off marks for these courses depend on both your JAMB score and Post UTME score.
How To Calculate Aggregate Score For Courses
To calculate your aggregate score for a course, you need to combine your JAMB score and Post UTME score. First, divide your JAMB score by 8 and your Post UTME score by 2. Then add the results to get your aggregate score.
For instance, let’s say a student wants to study pharmacy at the University of Lagos (Unilag) and scored 270 in JAMB and 80 in the Post UTME exam. To calculate the aggregate score, divide the JAMB score by 8 and the Post UTME score by 2, then add the results.
Thus, the calculation would be: 270/8 + 80/2 = 33.75 + 40, resulting in an aggregate score of 73.75.
