Hold on! I want to take a wild guess and say you are probably planning to write JAMB soon and need to decide on what school to attend.

It’s either that or you recently wrote JAMB and you are looking to get some useful information on your choice institution.

Which in this case, is most likely to be Taraba State University’s JAMB cut-off mark. Well, look no more. This article was specifically written for you.

In this article, besides the JAMB cut-off mark for the institution, I have outlined for you, the various departmental thresholds marks as well as the different faculties and departments contained in Taraba State University, Jalingo.

With this knowledge at your disposal, I believe you can more easily set your target and work towards meeting the said requirements for gaining admission into this institution of learning.

So read with apt attention, so as not to miss anything important.

What is the JAMB Cut-off Mark for Taraba State University, Jalingo (TASU)?

The JAMB designated cut-off mark for Taraba State University is 160. This does not in any way, guarantee one’s admission should they meet or surpass the score.

It, however, means that only those who score above 160 in their Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will be allowed to apply to Taraba State University and sit for the school’s Post-UTME examination.

However, seeing as the admission process is usually a very competitive one, the higher a student scores in their JAMB, the higher their chances of gaining admission.

When you are unable to score up to this cut-off mark, all hope for admission is not lost. You can apply for JAMB change of course/institution, and change your choice of institution to a polytechnic or college of education.

But if the above option is not one to choose, it is not still a bad I Dea if you wait for the next year when you will go through the JAMB registration all over.

Then, you will need to study harder by learning how to pass JAMB and stand a better chance of gaining admission.
