Are you an aspirant at Gombe State University? Do you wonder what the JAMB cut-off mark of the university is?

If your answer to the questions above is yes, then this article is for you. In this post, you will learn all you would want to know about all the requirements to get into this institution.


The official JAMB cut-off mark of GSU is 180. So, if you score up to 180 in your UTME, then you are hopeful to be admitted at the University.

Nevertheless, you must note that you are not guaranteed admission even if you beat this minimum mark. You will not only need to work hard, learn how to pass JAMB and score from 200 and above, to stand a better chance of admission amidst the high competition. You will also need to provide or meet other admission criteria.

But even if you could not make up to the cut-off mark, all hope for admission is not lost. You still have the opportunity of applying for the JAMB change of course/institution, where you will change your choice of institution to a polytechnic, a mono-technic, or a college of education.

If that is not a point you can consider, there is still nothing wrong with waiting for another year to resit the exams.  Of course, you will have more time to prepare and get ready.
