N/B: At the time of publishing this post, the Federal University Gushua (FUGASHUA) had not released and official list of their departmental cut-off mark.

We urge you therefore, to treat the above list as a mere guide and not taken as the actual list of cut-off mark. We shall keep you updated as soon as an official list is made by the school.


The Federal University Gashua, was established in February 2013. It was one of the 12 Federal Universities that was established by Goodluck Jonathan in the six geopolitical zones.

The Federal University Gashau offers over 25 undergraduate courses and as at February 2020 was 7 years old. It has its Vision to be a leading Centre of Excellence distinguished by its innovative and competitive approach to teaching, learning, research and service to humanity.

Its Mission Statement is to provide timely, relevant and transformational academic programme through focused teaching and research that are responsive to the needs of the local, national and global community.

Federal University Gashua is an institution of higher learning that seeks to be sensitive and responsive to immediate needs of the society and give every person the opportunity to acquire knowledge.

It is also committed to excellence and integrity in the pursuit of knowledge within an environment that respects diversity and gender mainstreaming.

The Federal University Gashua (FUGASHUA) is located in Gashua Local Government Area of Yobe State. Yobe state was carved out of the old Borno State and made a State on the 27th August, 1991, by the Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida Military Administration.

The Literacy Level of the State was too low compared to other states especially those in the Southern part of the Country. Access to basic Primary and Secondary and Tertiary education was impeded by a lot of factors.

It was this imperfection that motivated the Federal Government to establish a Federal University in Yobe State. The benefits derivable from the unfettered access to the University education by communities of a rural state like Yobe needs to be emphasized.

The foresight of the Federal Government in bringing Tertiary education to the doorsteps of the people of Yobe is indeed salutary.


What is cut-off mark?

Cut-off mark simply means a certain mark or score which candidates are expected not to score below if they want to be admitted for the particular year in view.

For example in the case of FUGASHUA, if they set their JAMB cut-off mark as 250 or 260, any student who scores below that has little or no chance and are adviced to start looking for other options.

In cut-off marks, you basically have to score above the set score or that exact score to be considered for possible admission.
