By this post we inform all candidates who chose Port Harcourt Polytechnic during the JAMB registration that the cut-off mark of the institution is out. Therefore, in this post you will learn about both UTME and departmental cut-off marks of Port Harcourt Poly.
Meanwhile, you will only gain admission into a Nigerian institution hen you have made the right scores in JAMB and post UTME. If the average falls below the benchmark score, then you have no chance.
Port Harcourt Polytechnic JAMB cut-off mark
The JAMB cut-off mark of the polytechnic is 120. This means that any candidate that chose Port Harcourt Poly must score at least 120 UTME points to be eligible for admission.
On the other hand, candidates who could not meet this requirement can settle for another year, or take the available alternatives.
They can rather switch to another polytechnic with a lower admission mark, or apply for part-time programme instead of a full-time ND programme.
Departmental cut-off marks
Having at least 120 in JAMB will make you eligible for the school’s post-UTME exercise. It might not be enough to get you into the department you want.
Your aggregate score must be high enough to beat the admission benchmark of your dream course.
