Jamb has announced the Cut-Off marks for entry into Nigerian Universities for 2012/2013 Academic Session.
According to a memo sent to us, the cut-off for Universities has been
fixed to 180 while that for Polytechnics and Colleges of Education have
been fixed to 160.
Announcing the cut-off today, it is important to note that these are the
benchmark cut-offs. This simply means that NO UNIVERSITY CAN CUT BELOW
180 and NO POLYTECHNIC OR COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CAN CUT BELOW 160. That
is, for any student to gain admission into any Nigerian University, they
must score 180 and above. This announcement also confirms that all
candidates who scored 159 and below cannot gain admission genuinely into
any institution this 2012/2013 session and would need to re-write
Even with the announcement of the cut-off by Jamb, each Institution
reserves the right to set a cut off higher than the benchmark but not
lower. This means that as usual, most Federal Universities will cut 200
and in the same light, most Federal Polytechnics will cut 180.
We, (Skoola), therefore advise candidates to watch out for our
original, regular, up-to-date and detailed information of respective
institutions as they will fix their individual cut-off. We, however,
expect most of the cut-offs to revolve around the benchmark, since most
institutions will want as much as to pay and write their post-utme exam.
With the announcement of these cut-offs, all Universities have been
empowered to officially begin Post-UTME. Post-UTME Planning committees
in various institutions will begin publishing
