Kwara State University JAMB Cut Off Mark 2024/2025

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) cut-off marks significantly determine admission into Nigerian universities. It serves as a benchmark to assess the eligibility of candidates seeking admission. In this context, we’ll explore the basics of JAMB cut-off marks for universities.

Institutional Autonomy: While JAMB sets a general cut-off mark, it’s important to note that individual universities have the autonomy to set their specific cut-off marks. Some universities may choose to adopt the JAMB general cut-off mark, while others may set higher cut-off marks based on the competitiveness of their courses and the number of available slots.

Admission Criteria: JAMB scores are just one aspect of the admission criteria. Universities may consider additional factors, including post-UTME scores, O’level results, and other specific requirements for different courses. It’s essential for candidates to familiarize themselves with the admission policies of the universities they are applying to.
