JAMB Cut-Off Marks for 2017/2018 Admission Exercise

JAMB Cut-Off marks for 2017 admission has been agreed as follows – for degree awarding courses, it’s 120 and for non degree awarding courses, it’s 100.

We are happy to notify all that candidates that participated in the 2017/2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has finally released the official cut-off mark for  universities, polytechnics, colleges of education and monotechnics in the country.

The minimum cut off marks for admissions into universities in Nigeria was set for 120, polytechnics and colleges of education pegged at 100, while that of innovative enterprising institutes was pegged at 110.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, also formerly announced a lift of the ban on the conduct of Post-UTME examination as a prerequisite for admission into tertiary institutions.

“Cancellation of Post- UTME is a mistake,” he said.

He noted that banning of post-UTME led to a lot of irregularities by candidates and some institutions.

The minister explained that with the lifting of the ban on the conduct of the examination, institutions are now at liberty to conduct, while adding that fee for the examination should not exceed N2000.

He explained that the 2016 admission process was a huge success, while expressing optimism that government is working assiduously to make that of 2017 better.

Mr. Adamu noted that government is also making efforts to expand access and ensure equality in the education sector.

He expressed optimism that a substantial number of candidates who sat for the 2017 UTME would gain admission into tertiary institution.
