One of the best steps to take as a candidate aspiring for admission into any university is proper research of your dream universities.

In the case of Nigeria, you must know the basic requirement of these institutions you are seeking to gain provisional admission.

So if you are aspiring to ply your trade with the Ekiti State University, I have good news for you.

You will learn all you would want to know about the JAMB cut-off mark of Ekiti State University, EKSU.

And not just that: you will also learn the cut-off marks of courses offered, and get to know answers to some of those questions you might have been asking about the University.

Follow along, will you?

What is the JAMB Cut-Off Mark of Ekiti State University?

The official JAMB cut-off mark of Ekiti State University is 180. This means is that if you score up to 180 in your UTME, you are eligible to buy the EKSU Post-UTME form and stand a chance of gaining admission.

If on the other hand, you are unable to score up to the cut-off mark, all hope for admission is not lost. You still have the opportunity of applying for the JAMB change of course/institution, where you will change your choice of institution to a polytechnic, or a college of education.

If you cannot change your choice of institution, it is not still a bad idea to wait for another year, when you will start the JAMB registration all over. Of course, you will have more time to prepare, learn, and relearn how to pass JAMB and make a high score.

Nevertheless, you must note that you are not guaranteed admission even if you reach this cut-off mark. You must also know that admission in EKSU is competitive and as such, you will need to score higher.

It follows a simple principle which is, the higher you score, the more chance you have to gain admission.
