JAMB 2019 Cutoff Mark

Here are the cut-off mark for various institutions in 2018:

  • Private Universities cutoff mark: 140
  • Public Universities: 140
  • Polytechnics cutoff mark: 120
  • Private Polytechnics: 110

  • Colleges of education (COE) cutoff mark: 100

This mark is most times based on the collective performance of all the candidates who sat for the exam. In a year where the mean score is very low, then there’s a high probability that JAMB will choose a low cutoff mark.

What you should know:

The minimum score for universities is applicable to all states, federal and private universities.

Institutions are at liberty to go way higher than the mark you see here for certain high-in-demand courses like Medicine & Surgery, law, etc.

In addition, many universities and polytechnics in Nigeria organize post JAMB / UTME, through which candidates will be reassessed for admission.

Every university in Nigeria has an official website / portal where they update their students / prospective students with latest happenings. Among the information you’ll find there are cut-off marks for their various courses. Furthermore, you’ll find information regarding post UTME dates on their official site.

It is absolutely necessary to bookmark the homepage of the official website of your desired institution. Through that you’ll be able to keep in touch with what’s happening straight from the horse’s mouth.
