New Jamb cut-off marks for universities, polytechnics, colleges by Everest(m) : 10:25 pm On Aug 26, 2017

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has finally released the general cut-off marks for all Nigerian universities, polytechnics, and colleges and as well lifting the ban for post UTME examination.
It was said that the decisions were taken at the 2017 Combined Policy Meetings on Admissions into Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria which is said to have ended on Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Here are the official Minimum cut-off marks for universities, polytechnics, and colleges:

Universities Minimum cut-off marks is 120

Polytechnics and colleges of education Minimum cut-off marks is 100

Other Innovative enterprising institutes Minimum cut-off marks is 110


Though despite the official Jamb Minimum cut-off marks Institutions have the privilege to raise their cut-off marks above JAMB’s official Jamb Minimum cut-off marks.


The current admissions into public degree awarding institutions for the 2017 UTME examination are expected to end on or before January 15, 2018, while other private institutions are expected to end admission before or on January 31, 2018.

It was also revealed that decisions on first choice candidates by universities will be expected to be complete October 15 and second choice candidates will end on December 15.

The rest of the students seeking admission will be available for other institutions till the January closing dates.

Ishaq Oloyede who is the Registrar of JAMB said a Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) will be used to streamline admission processes among institutions based on challenges associated with the former approach.

He said: “All over the world, there is agitation for dynamic educational policy,” he said. “JAMB only admits for National Diploma, not Higher National Diploma; so why should we use the same requirement for ND and BSC, that is an unreasonable party.”

“We should not be sentimental in fixing our cut off mark; we need not an over-dramatise issue of the cutoff mark.”

He noted that the number of those seeking admission to study agriculture had dropped while those for medicine and health science rose.
