Some candidates don’t know the role JAMB cutoff marks play in the admission process. JAMB cut off mark plays almost no role at all in securing your admission.
What you need to know about JAMB cutoff marks
It is important to understand that the JAMB cut off mark is not going to secure your admission into higher institutions in Nigeria.
Below are the key things that will give you admission:
- JAMB score
It is when JAMB, O-Level and post-UTME performances are added up that you get your overall score or points, which if it meets the school’s admission cutoff marks qualifies you for admission.
Most schools in Nigeria conduct post-UTME screening exams. This means that you still have to pass their screening exams. Also, note that your O-level results contribute to the overall cutoff marks for admission, and your JAMB score as well!
All the best in your quest for admission!
