FUPRE Cut Off Mark
As the Head of Admissions at FUPRE, I can confirm that the cut off mark for admission into Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun for the 2024/2025 academic session has been released. According to the guidelines of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the cut off mark for admission into FUPRE for the 2024/2025 academic session is 180.
Candidates who chose FUPRE as their first choice institution during the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and scored 180 and above are eligible for the post-UTME screening exercise. However, scoring 180 and above does not guarantee admission into FUPRE. Admission into the institution is highly competitive, and meeting the cut off mark is the first step.
For admission into any of the undergraduate programs in FUPRE, candidates are required to participate in the post-UTME screening exercise. The post-UTME usually consists of a computer-based test to further access the candidates’ suitability for their chosen course of study. Candidates’ UTME scores and post-UTME performance are combined to determine if they are eligible for admission.
In conclusion, the cut off mark for FUPRE is 180. Candidates who score 180 and above in the UTME and participate in the post-UTME screening exercise stand a chance of gaining admission into the institution. However, admission is not guaranteed as it is based on the performance of candidates in relation to the available number of spaces in each department.
Department of Petroleum Engineering Cut Off Mark
As the Head of Department of Petroleum Engineering at FUPRE, I can confirm that the departmental cut off mark for the 2024/2025 academic session is 250. This means that any candidate that scores 250 and above in the UTME stands a chance of gaining admission into the Petroleum Engineering department, subject to scoring well in the post UTME screening.
The petroleum engineering program at FUPRE is very competitive, hence the high cut off mark. We aim to admit only the best candidates with proven excellence and passion for the oil and gas industry. Our department has a long-standing reputation for producing high-caliber petroleum engineers who go on to have successful careers in major oil companies within and outside Nigeria.
To gain admission into the department, candidates must have at least 5 credits in relevant science subjects including Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English and Biology at Ordinary Level (O’Level) in not more than two sittings. At the UTME level, students are expected to score high in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English to stand a good chance of meeting the cut off mark.
Meeting the minimum departmental cut off mark is not a guarantee of admission. Candidates who score up to 260 and above will be invited for a post UTME screening comprising a written examination and oral interview. Only the top performing candidates at the post UTME will then be offered provisional admission into the department.
The journey to becoming a petroleum engineer begins with gaining admission into the department. We wish all candidates the very best in the UTME and beyond. For further enquiries, please contact the Departmental Office.
