If your answer to the questions above is YES, then you have come to the right page. In this post, I shall take you through all you should know about these questions.

Moreover, knowing the JAMB and departmental cut-off marks of your desired university and course of choice will automatically place you on the road to success. You will know what you should target and you get to know clearer steps to take and achieve it.

So now I urge you to read along as we delve into this pool of knowledge.

What is the JAMB Cut-off Mark of Yobe State University?

The official JAMB cut-off mark of Yobe State University is 160. However, if you score from 160 and above in your JAMB UTME, you have the hope of being admitted into the University.

But if you do not score up to this cut-off mark, all hope for admission is not lost. You can apply for the JAMB change of course/institution, where you will only have to change from university to polytechnic or college of education.

If neither of the available options is OK by you, then you will have to wait till the following year when you will do the JAMB registration again.

Nonetheless, you must know that even though the cut-off mark of BSU is 160, there is no guarantee that any candidate who has scored up to that must be admitted.

The only way you will have a better assurance of admission is to score high in JAMB. This would likewise entail studying hard and learning how to pass JAMB.
