Along with these, we’ve also provided a bit of background information on the institution for you to have a glimpse of what you are going into.

Do ensure to pay keen attention as you read so as not to miss any relevant detail.

What is the JAMB Cut-off Mark for the University of Medical Sciences, Ondo?

As directed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, the management of the University of Medical Sciences (UNIMED), Ondo has released their JAMB cut-off mark as 180.

You should note that scoring 180 in JAMB isn’t a guarantee for gaining provisional admission into the institution.

However, what it does mean is that only those who score above 180 in JAMB would be qualified to purchase the school’s Post-UTME form, and sit for their examination.

Due to the nature of the competition in gaining admission into the institution, the higher the candidate scores in JAMB, the higher the chances of gaining admission. It is for this reason that we usually encourage students to try and score up to at least 200 in order to stand a clear chance.

But if you were unable to meet this minimum score, you have the option of applying for JAMB change of course/institution. During this application, you will simply change your institution to a polytechnic or college of education.

And if you cannot change your institution of choice, it is still not a bad idea to wait for another year when you will start the JAMB registration all over.

Then, you will pump more effort into preparation, learning how to pass JAMB, and gaining grounds for admission.
