Following the earlier announcement by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, (JAMB) on cut off marks for tertiary institutions, some universities have released their specific cut-off marks for admission for the 2016/2017 academic year.
JAMB had earlier pegged the cut-off mark for Universities, Polytechnics, and Colleges of Education as 180.
However, based on the board’s modifications for the 2016 admission process, the cut off mark is now addition of a candidate’s JAMB score and post JAMB score; which are both divided into two to get an aggregate score.
For the Nnamdi Azikwe University (UNIZIK), prospective Medicine and Surgery students must score 293 while those interested in studying Nursing must have a score of 272.5.
Law student’s cut-off mark is 254 while the courses with the lowest cut-off marks are Botany, Quantity Survey, Agric and Bio-resource; which are 190.5, 175 and 172.5 respectively.
