JAMB Cut Off Mark 2023/2024 for Nigerian Tertiary Institutions

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is responsible for conducting the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in Nigeria. Each year, after the UTME, JAMB releases the cut-off marks for universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, and innovation enterprises.

These cut-off marks serve as the minimum scores required for candidates to gain admission into various tertiary institutions. In this article, we will explore the JAMB cut-off mark for the 2023/2024 academic session and its implications for aspiring students.

JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Nigerian Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education, and Innovation Enterprises

JAMB sets specific cut-off marks for different categories of tertiary institutions. For the 2023/2024 academic session, the minimum cut-off marks suggested by JAMB are as follows:

  • Universities: 140
  • Polytechnics: 100
  • Colleges of Education: 100
  • Innovation Enterprises: 100

These cut-off marks were determined during the JAMB policy meeting held on June 24th, 2023, and were officially approved by the JAMB registrar.

JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Universities

The cut-off mark set for universities is 140. This means that no university in Nigeria is allowed to go below this score for admission. Candidates who score 140 and above in their UTME will have the opportunity to apply for admission into universities.

JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Polytechnics

Polytechnics have a cut-off mark of 100. As with universities, no polytechnic is allowed to go below this score for admission. Candidates who score 100 and above in their UTME will be eligible to seek admission into polytechnics.

JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Colleges of Education

Colleges of Education also have a cut-off mark of 100. Candidates who score 100 and above in their UTME will be eligible to apply for admission into colleges of education.

JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Innovation Enterprises

Innovation enterprises, which include specialized institutions, also have a cut-off mark of 100. Candidates who score 100 and above in their UTME will be eligible to apply for admission into these institutions.

JAMB Policy Meeting and the Decision on Cut-Off Marks

During the JAMB policy meeting, the registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, emphasized that institutions have the freedom to set their own admission cut-off marks. However, he stated that institutions are not allowed to go below the minimum cut-off points adopted at the meeting. This means that while institutions can set their cut-off marks higher than the JAMB minimums, they cannot go lower.

Furthermore, the minister at the policy meeting expressed support for the Post-UTME but insisted that the cost of the screening process must not exceed Two thousand naira only (N2,000). This indicates that institutions will be held accountable for keeping the screening process affordable and accessible to all candidates.

List of Universities with 200 as their Cut-Off Mark

While JAMB sets the minimum cut-off mark for universities at 140, there are some universities in Nigeria that have fixed their cut-off mark at 200. The universities with 200 as their cut-off mark are:

  1. University of Ibadan, UI

  4. Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU
  5. Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, FUNAAB (200 for most courses, but some courses have a cut-off mark of 180)

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, and there may be other universities with a cut-off mark of 200.
