The cutoff mark is the minimum score required for students to get admitted to their preferred university or other institution.

How to Calculate Universities and their Departmental Cut Off Mark

Consider the three approaches used by Nigerian educational systems to determine ct off marks.

Method One

To begin, you must understand that different institutions have varying cut-off marks. The cut-off mark for UNICAL and UNIUYO cannot be the same.

Consider the following scenario.

If the law at UNIUYO is 77, and you get a 68 on the post-UTME and a 260 on the JAMB, you’re in good shape (SInce both Post UTME and JAMB are 100 and 400 respectively).

Divide 68 by two, which equals 32, then multiply your JAMB score by eight, which equals 260/8=32.5.

When you add the two numbers together, you get 32.5+34=66.5.

As a result, divide your jamb score by 8 and your post-UTME score by 2.

You can use this to see if you will get admitted to your desired school.

Method two

There is a small change in the computation process. Both your post-UTME, jamb, and o level grades are used in the second approach.

Here is the method;

  • As is customary, divide your JAMB score by eight.
  • The total marks available in the post-UTME 20.19
  • Your o level grades are in the high 30s. Here’s how to figure out your O level grade.

Your O’level Grade Calculation- How to Calculate

Every institution requires you to take five subjects for the subject combination, with Math and English being required.

Each Grade is assigned a point, which are listed below.

  • A1 = 6 points
  • B2 = 5 points
  • B3 = 4 points
  • C4= 3 points
  • C5 = 2 points
  • C6 = 1 points

So if you for instance scored 260 in JAMB and 12 in Post UTME and you have  3A”s 1 B3 AND C5 and you applied for say UNIBEN and their cut-off mark is 70. Here is the calculation.

Your Jamb -> 260/8=32.5

Your WAEC result (3A”S equals to 3×6=18 +B3=4 + C5=2).

For this method, you will not divide any score by two. Sum up everything.


If a student should get admission via this method, then the student must have a good O’level result.

Third Method

This is the final and easiest approach, as well as the most popular among Nigerian students; with this method, you are guaranteed admission because no screening is required. To be considered for admission, you must have a high JAMB score. Some of the key schools that follow this admission approach include UNIUYO, FUOYE, and UNIABUJA.

Approved Departmental Cut off Mark

JAMB recommends minimal cut-off marks of 160, 140, 120, 110, and 100 for admission to public universities, private universities, public polytechnics, private polytechnics, and colleges of education, respectively. www.jamb.gov.ng/cut-off-marks for further information
