Have you been surfing the net, moving from pages to pages in search of the cut-off mark of LASU?

Are you this inquisitive aspirant who wants to be sure, and know what his/her targets should be?

Well, if you answered yes to these questions above, or that your case is similar to these, I must promise you something:

On this page, you will not only learn all you would want to know about the JAMB cut-off mark for Lagos State University but also all their departmental cut-off marks.

Therefore, I invite you to read along carefully to get every bit of information contained in these lines.

What is the JAMB Cut-Off Mark for LASU?

The University’s official UTME cut-off aggregate is 180. What this means is that you are eligible to sit for the University’s screening exercise if you score from 180.

It does not mean that when you have scored this minimum mark, that you are guaranteed admission.

No! The truth actually is that you need to score higher than 180 to stand a better chance.

Moreso, if you are unable to reach this cut-off mark in your JAMB, all hope for admission is NOT lost. Of course, there are other options you can explore.

You can apply for the JAMB change of institution or course, and switch your interest to a polytechnic or college of education.

There are universities still that accept cut-off marks like 170 and 160. So, why not make changes?

Well, if these options are not good for you, it is not still a poor idea to wait for next year to go over the JAMB registration.

Moreover, you will have more time to prepare, learn, and unlearn, get to know the tricks and secrets of how to pass JAMB.
