The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB), on Tuesday, announced the cut-off marks arrived at for various universities.

The information which was first published on Punch Newspaper, revealed the various cut-off marks for varsities in the country. The information showed that Obafemi Awolowo University will not be deviating from its traditional 200. Candidates with less than 200 shouldn’t expect admission consideration from the institution according to JAMB.

In addition, some other prominent universities in the country such as University of Ibadan, University of Lagos, Covenant University, University of Benin, will also not consider admitting students with less than 200 in the just concluded UTME.

However, JAMB also made it known to the public that there is no uniform cut off mark – that is “no particular national minimum UTME score for all universities, polytechnics or colleges of education in Nigeria.” In such case, schools like Lagos State University will consider candidates with a minimum score of (190); while some others like Afe Babalola University, Nigerian Army University, Biu, University of Jos, University of Abuja, Redeemers University, University of Ilorin, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Bayero University Kano, Alex Ekwueme University and PAMO University of Medical Sciences, Port Harcourt, will consider candidates who scored a minimum of 180 and above.
