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.
