If you are seeking admission into Abia State University, one of the things that will keep you on your feet and help you aim for the best is the knowledge of the school’s cut-off marks, both JAMB and departmental.

Therefore, if you realised this and you are wondering what the JAMB cut-off mark of ABSU is, then you have arrived on the right page. In this post, you will not only learn what the JAMB cut-off is, but you will also get to know the different cut-off marks of courses offered in Abia State University.

So if I were you, I would read along carefully not to miss any bit.

What is ABSU JAMB Cut-off Mark?

The official JAMB cut-off mark of Abia State University is 180. This means that students who must be admitted into the said university should score from 180 and above in their JAMB UTME.

Unfortunately, students who scores lower than 180 are required to change their choice of institution, or wait for next year when they will register for JAMB afresh.

Even though the cut-off mark of ABSU is 180, it does not mean that students who have 180 marks in JAMB will all be admitted. It is usually safer to score above 180,say from 200 and above. This will give you a higher chance of gaining admission into ABSU.
