In the Nigeria education setting, knowing the JAMB and departmental cut-off marks of your dream university is one of these points you must take note of.

In this post, I have carefully given you every bit of what you should know about the JAMB cut-off mark of Federal University, Otuoke (FUOTUOKE). We understand that you need answers, that is why we have also given answers to some of those questions you might be asking about FUOTUOKE and their admission procedures.

With these packages for you here, I encourage you to read along carefully in order to get every bit of it.


The JAMB cut-off mark of the Federal University Otuoke Bayelsa State is 180. This is the same for all Nigerian universities except the universities in the educationally less privileged States.

What this cut-off mark means is that candidates who made from 180 and above are the ones that are eligible for admission. Students who made lower than 180 can either apply for the JAMB change of course/institution or wait for next year.
