The JAMB cut-off mark of UNIMAID is 180. This is the same for all universities in Nigeria except the ones in the educationally less privileged states.

What this means is that if you do not make up to 180 point in your JAMB UTME, you will not be eligible to buy the school’s Post UTME form and stand the chance of gaining admission. So as a UNIMAID aspirant, you will have to brace up and study hard and smart.

You would need to score from 200 points and above to have a better chance. Perhaps you are not sure about how to score high in JAMB, this guide can be of good help.
