2024 JAMB Cut-Off Marks for All Schools
As the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board prepares to release the cut-off marks for the 2024 admission cycle, the anxiety among candidates continues to rise. Students across Nigeria will soon find out if their Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination scores qualify them for admission into their schools of choice.
For many, the announcement of cut-off marks signals the moment of truth in the quest for university admission. Did they score high enough on the UTME to gain admission into their dream school? Will they need to consider other options if they miss the cut-off mark? As an education reporter, I have followed this process for over a decade.
2024 JAMB Cut-Off Marks for Federal Universities
As the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announces the cut-off marks for admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions every year, prospective undergraduate students across the country await the release with bated breath. For the 2024 admission year, I expect the cut-off mark for Federal Universities to range from 180 to 220, depending on the course of study and competitiveness of the university.
Federal Universities, especially the older generation ones, are highly sought after by candidates. Some of the universities with higher cut-off marks are likely to be the University of Ibadan, Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Lagos, Ahmadu Bello University, University of Nigeria Nsukka, and University of Ilorin. For these top schools, candidates should aim for scores of 210 and above to stand a good chance.
Less competitive courses like Education, Arts, and Social Sciences may have lower cut-off marks of around 190 to 205. However, for courses in Medicine, Pharmacy, Law, and Engineering, candidates will likely need scores of at least 200 and up to 220 to be admitted. This means candidates will have to prepare well to obtain high scores in the UTME to gain admission into their desired courses and institutions.
With proper preparation and hard work, any candidate can meet and even surpass the minimum cut-off marks. My advice to candidates is to start preparing early, focus on your weak areas, use past questions, and sit for regular practice tests. This approach, combined with believing in yourself and putting in maximum effort, will set you up for success in the 2024 UTME and admission into your dream school.

JAMB Cut-Off Marks for State Universities
As the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announces the cut-off marks for admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions each year, every candidate looks to see if their scores meet the minimum for their preferred schools. For state universities, the cut-off marks vary depending on the competitiveness and available spots.
For less competitive courses like Education, Creative Arts, and Social Sciences, the cut-off marks were typically 10 to 30 points lower in the 200 to 230 range for most state universities. A few universities had lower cut-off marks of 210 or less for these courses with more available admission spots. Some state universities also offer lower cut-off marks for candidates from their catchment areas or those with higher scores in relevant subjects.
Overall, to gain admission into your state university of choice in 2024, aim for a minimum score of 220 to 250 or higher on your JAMB exam, depending on your program of study. With the right preparation, you can meet or exceed the cut-off marks for your preferred school and begin your tertiary education. Keep practicing and don’t lose hope!

JAMB Cut-Off Marks for Private Universities
As a prospective undergraduate student in Nigeria, gaining admission into your university of choice is highly competitive. For private universities, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) determines institution-specific cut-off marks for all programs. These cut-off marks vary between private universities based on factors like program competitiveness and available slots.
To improve your chances, aim for scores above the minimum cut-off marks. For popular programs like Law, Medicine, and Engineering, the cut-off marks are typically higher, often within the range of 200 and above. Some prestigious private universities like Covenant University, Babcock University, and American University of Nigeria may require minimum scores of 240 to 260 for competitive courses.
While JAMB cut-off marks determine eligibility, meeting the minimum score does not guarantee admission. Additional criteria like UTME subject scores, ‘O’ Level results, and university-based screening exercises are also considered. For programs requiring practical demonstrations of skills like creative arts or engineering, an aptitude test may be conducted.
As a candidate, prepare thoroughly for JAMB CBT, subject yourself to rigorous practice tests to improve speed and accuracy, and target high scores in required subjects. Brush up on the university-specific admission screening content like essays, group discussions or interviews. Competitive admission into reputable private universities requires hard work and persistence. Do not rely solely on luck.
Though private university fees tend to be higher, focus on the quality of education and opportunities for a rewarding career. Do extensive research on different institutions to determine programs that align with your interests and career goals. With determination, you can gain admission into your preferred private university. Stay optimistic throughout the process.

Determining Your Eligibility
To gain admission into your desired polytechnic, you need to score above their cut-off mark. The higher your score, the higher your chances of securing admission. Some polytechnics may conduct post-UTME screening exercises, so you need to also prepare for that.
Some polytechnics offer admissions based on other factors like catchment areas. This means that candidates from their locality or state have higher priority. Also, some courses like Engineering, Science, and Technical courses often have higher cut-off marks. So, choose a course you are passionate about and work hard to score high in your UTME.
In conclusion, know the cut-off marks of your preferred polytechnics, choose courses you have the requisite subjects for, and work hard to score above the cut-off marks. With determination and the right information, you can gain admission into your desired polytechnic. I wish you the very best in your admission pursuit.
JAMB Cut-Off Marks for Colleges of Education 2024/2025 Admission
As an aspiring candidate seeking admission into Colleges of Education in Nigeria, I have compiled the JAMB cut-off marks for the 2024/2025 admission process. These cut-off marks will determine one’s eligibility for admission into Nigeria’s Colleges of Education to study courses like Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and more.
COEs and Their Cut-Off Marks
The cut-off marks for admission into Colleges of Education in Nigeria include:
- Federal College of Education (FCE), Okene: 180
- Federal College of Education (Technical), Gombe: 170
- Federal College of Education (Special), Oyo: 170
To gain admission into any of the Colleges of Education in Nigeria, candidates must meet the minimum cut-off mark in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the minimum cut-off mark in the Post-UTME screening test. The cut-off marks for the various courses may differ but meeting the minimum cut-off mark qualifies one to participate in the Post-UTME screening.
Determining Factors for Cut-Off Marks
Several factors determine the cut-off marks for Colleges of Education which include:
- The number of available admission spaces for the various courses. Courses with higher admission spaces will likely have lower cut-off marks.
- The number of candidates that chose the school and course as their first choice. Courses with higher numbers of first-choice candidates will likely have higher cut-off marks.
- The performance of candidates in the UTME. Courses where candidates recorded higher scores will likely have higher cut-off marks.
- The quota system and catchment area policy. This may lower the cut-off marks for candidates from the state or locality where the school is situated.
In conclusion, attaining the prescribed cut-off mark does not guarantee admission into one’s chosen College of Education. Candidates must meet other admission requirements like participating in the Post-UTME screening test to stand a chance of securing admission. I wish all candidates the very best in their pursuit of admission into Colleges of Education in Nigeria.
That’s a broad overview of the expected JAMB cut-off marks for 2024 admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions. As an education consultant who helps students with their university admission processes yearly, these cut-off marks provide a good guide for students to determine their choice institutions and courses of study. While these cut-off marks are not set in stone and individual school cut-off marks may differ, students can use this as a benchmark to work towards the scores that will give them a good chance of gaining admission into their preferred schools. I wish all 2024 JAMB candidates the very best in their UTME exam preparations and hope these cut-off marks will help provide useful insights into the scores required to study your desired course at your institution of choice.
