WHAT IS THE JAMB CUT-OFF MARK OF UNICAL
The JAMB cut-off mark of the University of Calabar is 180. This is same with all the universities in Nigeria, except universities in the educationally less privileged States.
This mean that if you score up to 180 in your JAMB UTME, you will be eligible to purchase UNICAL post UTME form, to further screen you for admission into the university. But even at that, having 180 cannot or will barely guarantee you admission into UNICAL and many other universities in Nigeria.
UNICAL is a reputable university, very competitive and thus, would require that you score from 200 and above to stand a better chance of winning. So you must prepare for JAMB and with this guide on how to pass JAMB, I believe you will be better guided.
