JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Universities 2024/2025: The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the body responsible for conducting the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and regulating the admission process into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Every year, millions of candidates sit for the UTME and compete for the limited admission slots available in various universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education across the country.

One of the criteria that determines the eligibility of candidates for admission is the JAMB cut-off mark. This is the minimum score that a candidate must obtain in the UTME to be considered for admission into a particular institution. The JAMB cut-off mark varies from one institution to another, depending on the level of competition, the availability of spaces, and the performance of candidates.

What is the JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Universities 2024/2025?

The JAMB cut-off mark for universities 2024/2025 has not been officially announced yet. However, based on the previous years’ trends, we can make some predictions and assumptions about what it might be.

In 2023, JAMB announced that the minimum cut-off mark for admission into Nigerian universities was 140, while the minimum cut-off mark for polytechnics and colleges of education was 100. This was a slight reduction from the previous year’s cut-off marks of 160 and 120 respectively.

However, it is important to note that these are just the general cut-off marks that apply to all institutions. Each institution has the autonomy to set its own specific cut-off mark higher than the general one, depending on its standards and requirements. For example, some of the most competitive and prestigious universities in Nigeria, such as University of Lagos (UNILAG), University of Ibadan (UI), Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), etc., usually have cut-off marks ranging from 180 to 250.

Therefore, candidates who wish to gain admission into their preferred universities must not only meet the general JAMB cut-off mark, but also the specific cut-off mark of their chosen institutions. They must also meet other requirements such as their O’level results, post-UTME screening scores, catchment area, etc.

JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Private Universities 2024/2025

Why is the JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Universities 2024/2025 140?

The JAMB cut-off mark for universities 2024/2025 was set at 140 to ensure that only qualified candidates are admitted into tertiary institutions. According to the Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the cut-off mark was determined based on the performance of candidates in the UTME, the capacity of institutions, and the national policy on education.

He also explained that the cut-off mark is not a one-size-fits-all requirement, but a minimum benchmark that can be adjusted by each institution according to its own standards and preferences. Therefore, some universities may have higher cut-off marks than 140, depending on their level of competitiveness and demand.

How to Check Your JAMB Cut-Off Mark for Universities 2024/2025

How to Increase Your Chances of Admission with Your JAMB Cut-Off Mark

If you have met or exceeded the JAMB cut-off mark for your desired university, congratulations! You have taken a big step towards securing your admission. However, this does not guarantee that you will be admitted automatically. You still need to work hard and smart to improve your chances of admission. Here are some tips to help you:

  • Prepare well for your post-UTME screening test. This is another crucial factor that determines your admission status. Some universities place more emphasis on your post-UTME score than your UTME score. Therefore, you need to study hard and practice with past questions and answers to ace your post-UTME test.
  • Choose a less competitive course. If you are not confident about your UTME score or your post-UTME performance, you may want to consider changing your course to a less competitive one. This will increase your chances of being admitted, as there will be less competition and more spaces available. You can always switch back to your original course later on if you meet the requirements.
  • Apply for supplementary admission. Some universities offer supplementary admission opportunities for candidates who did not make it in the first batch or merit list. This is usually done after the release of the first list and before the closure of admission. You can apply for supplementary admission if you meet the criteria and pay the required fees. However, this is not guaranteed and depends on the availability of spaces and quota.
  • Consider other options. If all else fails, do not lose hope or give up on your dreams. There are other options available for you to pursue your education. You can apply for other institutions that have lower cut-off marks or less stringent requirements. You can also apply for pre-degree, diploma, or remedial programs that can help you gain admission into your desired university later on. You can also explore other opportunities such as scholarships, grants, or loans that can help you fund your education.


The JAMB cut-off mark for universities 2024/2025 is one of the most important factors that determine your admission status. You need to score at least 140 in your UTME to be eligible for admission into any university in Nigeria. However, you also need to meet the specific cut-off mark of your chosen institution, as well as other requirements such as your O’level results, post-UTME screening scores, catchment area, etc.

To check your JAMB cut-off mark for universities 2024/2025, you need to visit the official JAMB portal or the websites of your preferred universities. To increase your chances of admission with your JAMB cut-off mark, you need to prepare well for your post-UTME test, choose a less competitive course, apply for supplementary admission, or consider other options.
