One of the best things you can do for yourself as an admission seeker is to brace yourself up with a lot of information about the school you are applying to. With that, you will be able to know how best you can position yourself for admission in the school.
So if you are an applicant seeking admission into UNIABUJA and wondering the cut-off mark of this university, you have come to the right page. In this article, I will share with you all you would want to know about the JAMB cut-off mark of UNIABUJA, including their departmental cut-off marks.
I have also taken time to answer some of those questions you might have been asking about the University and their admission process. Really, a lot has been discussed here and I urge you to read along carefully in order not to miss any bit of this post.
WHAT IS THE JAMB CUT-OFF MARK OF UNIABUJA?
The official JAMB cut-off mark of University of Abuja is 180. This mark, 180, is also the JAMB cut-off mark of many universities in Nigeria. But in the educationally less privileged States, the cut-off mark of universities goes as low as 160.
That the cut-off mark of UNIABUJA is 180 means that if you score from 180 and above, you will be eligible to purchase the University’s Post UTME form and stand a chance of gaining admission.
On the other hand, the reverse is the case: if you score less than 180, you will either wait for the following year when you will re-write JAMB or apply for the JAMB change of institution/Course, where you will have to change your choice to a different institution.
