What is the JAMB Cut-off Mark of AKSU?

The official JAMB cut-off mark of Akwa Ibom State University is 180. This means that you will only be considered for admission to the institution if you score from 180 points in your JAMB UTME.

If on the other hand, you did not score up to that, you have the option to apply for the JAMB change of course/institution, where you will change to another tertiary institution with lower JAMB cut-off marks.

Nonetheless, it is not an automatic ticket of admission to any candidate who scored from 180 upwards; admission is a very competitive process. So you must really score to secure a good spot. So, you will have to study hard and make from 200 upwards.
