Here is the summary of the official 2014/2015 JAMB cut-off marks. The official cut-off mark for Universities, Polytechnic and Colleges of Education as released by the Federal Government in consultation with the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) and other stakeholders.
JAMB Cut-off Marks for Universities – 2014/2015
Federal Universities is 180 while State Universities will want to set theirs. This is because they are run by the state Government but be certain that many of them will follow the Federal Guideline of 180 cut-off Marks.
Official 2014 Cut-off Marks for Polytechnics & Colleges of Education
Polytechnics have been stipulates to use 150 as the 2014 Cut-off marks. JAMB Candidates who have chosen polytechnics and have scored a minimum of 150 will likely qualify for Post-UTME screening. The same goes for the Colleges of Education in the Country.
We used the statement; “will likely qualify for Post-UTME Screening”, why? This is because, this official Federal Government / JAMB cut-off mark is only a guide. It represents the least mark any institution could consider for admission.
What is the implication? The implication of this is that, as the JAMB cut-off mark for Universities stands at 180, some Universities (like UNILORIN, OAU, etc) would likely use 200 as cut-off mark. Any University can use cut off point that is more than 180 but it cannot be lesser.
