The official cut-off mark for the University of Jos (UNIJOS), like some other universities, is 180. This means that if you score up to 180 in JAMB, you’re eligible to apply to certain departments in UNIJOS.

However, some other departments have varying JAMB cut-off marks and you will need to know the one that applies to your choice department.

N/B: Please note that these scores stated in the table above aren’t confirmed because the University has not published the official list of cut-off marks.

However we advice you treat it as a mere guide and not the actual fact. We shall keep you updated when the official list is published. Do well to keep in touch with us.


How is UNIJOS Cut-off Mark Calculated?

A candidate’s JAMB score and their post-utme score in UNIJOS usually contribute 50% each to the final cut-off mark.

This means that the JAMB score, which is usually scored over 400 will be divided by 8. Then the post utme score, which is usually over 100 will by divided by 2. Then the two will be added.

E.g. If Mr. John had 280 in JAMB and 72 in post utme, his screening score would be calculated as;

(280/8) + (72/2)

= 35 + 36

= 71%
