Do you aspire to become a student at Delta State University? Have you been in search of cut-off marks of the school?

If you answered yes to the above questions, then I must assure you that you have come to the right page.

In this post, you will learn all you would want to know about the JAMB cut-off mark of DELSU, and also the departmental cut-off mark of the University.

With the knowledge of the cut-off mark of your dream university and course of choice, you will know exactly what you are targeting and how to position yourself for a high score. This is invariably a huge step to success.

So now, I urge you to read along carefully, to get every bit of all we have for you here.

What is the JAMB Cut-off Mark of DELSU?

The official JAMB cut-off mark of Delta State University, Abraka is 180. Therefore if you made from 180 points and above in your UTME, then you have the chance of gaining admission into DELSU.

Nonetheless, you are not guaranteed of gaining admission even if you reach the required cut-off mark. This is because admission into DELSU is competitive, so you will need to score a bit higher than the minimum score, to have a better chance.

Well, if you do not score up to this cut-off mark, all hope for admission is not lost. You can apply for the JAMB change of course/institution, where you will have to change your institution of choice, from university to Polytechnic, Monotechnic, or College of Education.

And if you cannot consider changing your institution of interest, it is not still a bad idea to wait for next year when you will reapply for JAMB registration. Then, you will only learn the tricks of how to pass JAMB and probably play your role better.

Kindly note that the official departmental cut-off mark of DELSU has not been released by the university Management.

However, we urge you to take the list as a mere guide and not as the the actual official list.

We shall keep you updated immediately the new list is published.

How is the DELSU cut-off point calculated?

DELSU aggregate is calculated in percentage. So to calculate your cut-off mark:

  • Divide your JAMB score by 8
  • Divide your post UTME score by 2
  • Add the 2 points you calculated above.
  • The resulting figure is your DELSU aggregate in percentage.

So from the list above, you can see whether you met the required minimum score, from the result you have.
