Are you seeking admission in Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic, then wondering what mark you need to stand a chance?

If yes, you are on the right page. In this article, we have carefully discussed the JAMB and departmental cut-off marks of Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic, Ikot Ekpene.

Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic JAMB Cut-Off

The cut-off mark approved by JAMB for all polytechnics including this one under review is 120.

What this means is that you can only gain admission in Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic if you score a minimum of 120 in UTME. The reverse would therefore be the case if you do not meet this criteria.

Nevertheless, you cannot totally give up if your score isn’t up to the required. You can simply buy the JAMB change of course/institution form and change to a college of education, diploma course, or even to a private polytechnic.

But nothing still stops you from buying JAMB form if these alternatives do not meet your standard.

Departmental cut-off mark

Having 120 or more in JAMB is enough to place you on the track; it does not guarantee you admission.

However, what really determines your admission is the departmental cut-off mark. So, below is a rough summary of the cut-off mark for different courses offered Akwa Ibom State Poly:
