Getting to know the cut-off mark of your dream school is a great step towards achieving your goal for admission. So, you are on the right track if you are in search of the cut-off mark of the university you feel is best for you.

With that said, if you have been in search of the JAMB cut-off mark of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), then you have met the right post.

In this post, we have carefully discussed all you should know, not just about JAMB cut-off mark but all the departmental cut-off mark of FUNAAB. We have also taken a good time to answer some of those questions you might have about admissions in this university of agriculture.

With these pack of information before you, I urge you to read along. Now, let’s get to business.


The JAMB cut-off mark of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) is 180. The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB has made 180 a benchmark for all Nigerian universities.

Therefore, if a candidate seeking admission into FUNAAB does not make up to 180 points in the JAMB UTME, he or she will have to settle for a Polytechnic, Monotechnic or College of Education. There is also an option of waiting for the next year’s round of the exam, but I am sure that will not be your portion. You will be admitted in the institution of your choice.

Even though 180 is the minimum mark a candidate must have, in order to stand a chance of gaining admission into any Nigerian university, various departments in each institution have their cut-off marks. So even if you have made up to 180, it is not yet a certainty that you’ll gain admission; I would say the departmental cut-off marks play more huge role.

Let’s now find out what these departmental cut-off marks are.
