The JAMB cut-off mark of Federal University, Dutse Jigawa State is 160. Pretty small huh?

Federal University Dutse is still a young university and it is located in an educationally less privileged State, that is why the JAMB cut-off mark is relatively small.

What this JAMB cut-off mark means is that candidates who scored up to 160 or more in the JAMB UTME are eligible to purchase the University’s Post UTME form and stand the chance of being admitted. Although it is not a guarantee that you will be admitted with that mark; you may be required to reach the departmental cut-off mark of your dream course of study.

NOTE: The figures in the table above should merely serve as a guide and not taken to be the actual departmental cut-off mark of FUD.

As at the time of publishing this post, the official list of cut-off mark had not been released by the school. We shall keep you updated when the necessary changes are made.


Federal University, Dutse is one of the Federal universities in Nigeria established in 2011 by the Federal Government of Nigeria. It is located in the ancient city of Dutse, the capital city of Jigawa State.

The University started with 205 students in their first year but they have about 3,200 students now. The university organised their first convocation ceremony in 2016.

Federal University, Dutse does both undergraduate and postgraduate studies. The school continues to seek diverse quality of students and lecturers and contribute to research and the development of the region and country at large.


What are the admission requirements for FUD?

  • UTME candidates seeking admission into FUD must have at least five (5) credits in their O’Level certificate (WASSCE, NECO or NABTEB); English Language and Mathematics including three other subjects relevant in your field are what should constitute these five subjects.
  • You will also need to score above the cut-off mark of your chosen department.

When does FUD hold their Post UTME?

The post UTME form or application of FUD has not started. But in previous years, the post UTME application starts between June to August while the exam holds between August and September. So, you can prepare your mind against these periods stated.


This is a point I will assume you have got every bit of what we have for you as the JAMB cut-off mark of the Federal University Dutse, Jigawa State.
