To get admitted into any Nigerian tertiary institution, you must meet the basic admission requirements. Among these requirements is scoring the required cut-off mark of your dream institution.

So, if you are an aspirant of Federal Polytechnic Damaturu, and wondering what the cut-off mare of this school is, this post is for you.

Here, we have discussed in detail the JAMB and departmental cut-off marks of the polytechnic.

Federal Polytechnic Damaturu JAMB cut-off mark

The approved JAMB cut-off mark of Federal Polytechnic Damaturu is 120. However, only candidates who have made up to this score in their UTME will be offered provisional admission.

Those who did not score up to this can apply for JAMB change of course/institution, or wait till another year.

Departmental cut-off marks

While 120 is the mark that makes you eligible to buy the school’s post UTME form, it doesn’t guarantee you admission.

This is because of varying departmental cut-off marks. Thus, you can only be offered admission if your aggregate meets the requirements of your department of choice.
