Is EBSU your dream University? And as such been wondering what the JAMB cut-off mark of this prestigious institution is?

Well, if you answered yes to the questions above, I must assure you that I have great news for you. The good news is that in this post, you will learn everything you need to know about the JAMB cut-off mark of Ebonyi State University, EBSU.

We also delved into giving you the departmental cut-off mark of the University, so that you will be properly informed in the steps to take.

Knowing these cut-off marks will enable you to know exactly what you’re targeting, and how much effort you must burn into preparation.

So now, I invite you to read along carefully so that you will not miss important details along the line.

What is the JAMB Cut-off Mark of EBSU?

The official JAMB cut-off mark of the Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki is 180. Thus you are eligible for admission to the University if you make up to 180 in your JAMB UTME.

But it is not a guarantee that since you have made up to this cut-off mark that you will be admitted. No!

The admission process at this University is relatively competitive. So to have a better chance of gaining admission, you will need to score at least 200. Get me right. You can still be admitted with 180, only that you will not have a competitive advantage.

If in any way you are unable to make up to the cut-off mark, all hope for admission is not lost. What you have to do is to apply for the JAMB change of course/institution and change to either a Polytechnic, a Monotechnic, or to a College of Education.

If changing to an academically lower institution is not your choice, then it is not a bad idea to wait till next year when you will do the JAMB registration again. Of course, you know what you want more than I do.

Then, you will need to pump more action into studying and learning how to pass JAMB, to score high enough.
