A major step towards gaining admission into the university is doing proper research about your dream university. Do you know why I said so?

Now, with a proper knowledge about the school and their requirements, you will be able to know the best practices you need to play and the targets you should set. By this, you will have an upper hand in the race for admission.

Knowing the JAMB and departmental cut-off mark of your dream university is part of this. However in this post, we have carefully discussed all you should know about the JAMB cut-off mark of FULOKOJA.

We have also given details on the cut-off marks for different departments in the school and gave answers to some of those questions you always wanted their answers.

So I urge you to read carefully and with keen interest, so that you’ll not miss any bit of it.


The JAMB cut-off mark of the Federal University, Lokoja is 180. What this means is that the benchmark of score on which applicants will be admitted into FULOKOJA is 180.

Meanwhile, this is not always the case as different departments in the school have varying cut-off marks. This score is determined by the number of applicants the department has and maybe, the perceived market value of the course.

If you chose FULOKOJA during your JAMB registration, you must strive to score higher than from 180 and above; the higher your JAMB score is, the better chance you have to gain admission.
