Few Nigerian universities have taken the lead to urgently release their cut-off marks for the 2021/2022 admission following the cancellation of the general national cut-off marks by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) recently.
University of Lagos and about nine other Nigerian universities however have released their cut-off marks for the 2021/2022 admission.
JAMB’s decision gave the tertiary institution in the country the freedom to set their own cut-off marks.
BBC Pidgin reported that JAMB registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede listed some universities that have released their own cut-off marks.
University of Maiduguri – 150
Usman Dan Fodio University – 140 University of Sokoto – 140
Pan Atlantic University – 210
University of Lagos – 200
Lagos State University – 190
Covenant University – 190
University of Ilorin – 180
Bayero University, Kano – 180
However, Bayero University Kano (BUK) cut-off marks vary depending on the courses.
These are the cut-off marks according to faculties:
Faculty of Allied Health Sciences – 200 Faculty of Clinical Sciences – 250 Faculty of Dentistry – 200 Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences – 220 Faculty of Law – 220; just as the cut-off mark for blind candidates – 160.
Candidates who chose the above universities as their choice of study in the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), should check the cut-off marks to know whether they meet the admission requirement.
It would be recalled that JAMB released the details of the best 10 candidates in the 2021 UTME.
The examination body’s registrar, Professor Oloyede, gave the details during his presentation at the 2021 admission policy meeting which was held virtually on Tuesday, August 31.
Monwuba Chibuzor Chibuikem, a male student from Lagos state who sat the examination in the state, topped the list with a score of 358 out of the possible 400 marks.
