Did you choose Kwara State University, Malete as your choice of institution in the JAMB application?

Or, are you hoping it is the school you will apply to?

Are you wondering what the cut-off marks of the University are?

If these questions above met your quest, then I must assure you that you are on the right page.

Here, you will learn all about the JAMB cut-off mark of KWASU, as well as their departmental cut-off aggregate.

Thus, I urge you to read carefully, so that you will not miss any detail contained in these lines.


The official UTME cut-off aggregate for the University is 180. This means that you must score up to 180 in your UTME before you will be eligible to purchase the University’s screening form and stand a chance to gain admission.

Moreover, it is not an automatic guarantee of admission if you score up to this cut-off mark.

On another note, if you are not able to meet this cut-off requirement, all hope for admission is not lost. Of course, there are still alternative options you can take.

You can either switch to a polytechnic or a college of education. And if this is not an option, it is still a good idea to wait for next year to sit for the exams.

At least, in the following year, you must have prepared better, read, and learned the tips and tricks on passing  JAMB. Although this option requires your resilience and self-belief.
