JAMB Cut-off Mark for RSUST

The official UTME cut-off Mark of the University is 180.

However, it is important to note that scoring this minimum cut-off does not guarantee you admission.

What it does mean is that only those who score up to 180, you will be allowed to sit for RSUT’s post-UTME exams.

For this reason, we advise candidates to aim for a score of at least 200, to stand a better chance of making it through the competitive process.

If you did not make the minimum mark required, you can always apply for the change of course/institution.

There, you will switch your institution of choice to a polytechnic or a college of education, whose cut-off marks are lower.

And if you are not OK with the above suggestion, you will have to wait one more year to undertake the JAMB registration process again.

So, we recommend you take a quick look at our tips on how to pass JAMB. That way, you will be able to score higher.
