Cut off mark is an agreed score set by a particular institution as basic of admitting students into the department of study.  This score is usually accredited to candidates based on their performance in a particular examination.

Q3. Can I get admission into any university of my choice with this JAMB proposed Cut off Mark for 2021? – No! You are required to know that the cut-off marks released by JAMB are the minimum cut off mark.

JAMB has also given all Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education and Innovative Enterprises the chance to increase their cut-off marks above the one fixed by JAMB.

JAMB Latest Update on Cut Off Marks

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released cut-off points for this year’s admission into universities, polytechnics, colleges of education and monotechnics.

The minimum cut off marks suggested by JAMB for admissions into public universities, private universities, public polytechnic, private polytechnics and colleges of education are 160140120, 110 and 100 respectively.

  • Public Universities — 160
  • Private Universities — 140
  • For Public Polytechnics — 120
  • Private Polytechnics — 110
  • Colleges of Education — 100
  • Innovation Enterprise — 100

Many institutions are, however, at liberty to raise their cut off marks for admission above the minimum set by JAMB.

These decisions were taken at the 2021 Combined Policy Meetings on Admissions into Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said institutions, with the decision, are not to go below the minimum cut-off points adopted at the meeting for admissions.

According to him, “What JAMB has done is to recommend; We will only determine the minimum, whatever you determine as your admission cut-off mark is your decision.

The board will ensure that criterion set by Senate are strictly adhered to by the institutions’ admission officers and no shifting of goal post in the middle of the admission exercise.

    i want to thank you for taking time to gather the information about jamb cut off mark for 2017/2018 and i believe having gathered the information you can at least clear some doubt, i want to ask why is jamb cut off mark for UNN 180 instead of normal 200 this year?

    • abubakar khalid atiku says:

      oga dont you know that many candidates did not get the expected points? If i am to advice, i will prefer jamb reduce the cut of mark for uni. from 180 to 170 or give additional 20marks 4 candidates.
