Do you aspire to become a student of Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University?

Are you wondering what the JAMB cut-off mark of the University is?

If your answer to these questions is yes, then I would assure you that you are on the right page.

In this post, you will learn all you would want to know about the JAMB cut-off mark of IBBU as well as those for their various departments.

We always advise students to make proper research about different universities before making their choices.

One of the things you should find out about the school is their cut-off marks. So, now let’s find out about that for IBBU.

IBBU JAMB Cut-Off Mark

The UTME cut-off mark of Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University (IBBU), Lapai Niger State is 170.

Therefore, if you are an applicant and you score below 170 in your JAMB UTME, then you will have no chance of gaining admission to the University.

But if you score above this cut-off mark, then you can proceed with other admission processes.

I must sound it as a note here that you are not guaranteed admission even if you have reached the JAMB cut-off mark.

JAMB score is not the only deciding factor. The University’s post-UTME is there too. So you will need to score high in JAMB, say from 200 upwards, to have a better competitive advantage.

All hope for admission is not lost if you are unable to score up the cut-off mark. You have the option to apply JAMB change of institution/course, where you can change to a polytechnic or college of education.

If changing your school of choice is not an option you can consider, it is still not a bad idea to wait for next year when you can go all over the JAMB registration again.

Then, you will need to buckle up, brace yourself with the knowledge of how to pass JAMB, to score a better mark in the JAMB UTME.
