He said: “Nobody should charge more than N2,000. The total gross is N2,000. It is not allowed by institutions to allow candidates to procure administrative charges.

How is Cutoff Marks Calculated?

The calculation of the scores both in JAMB and Post UTME can be very complex owing to current happenings. Before now, it was believed that JAMB scores is added to Post UTME scores then divided by 2. It is the result that is measured with the cutoff mark. However, it is sometimes difficult to believe that some universities even use post UTME scores.

This is because there are cases of students who did not participate in a particular Post UTME process but still got admission. It was later during clearance that they paid for the post UTME fee. Investigations showed that they did not even influence the admission neither did they have anyone who must have done that on their behalf. Owing to this development, it is difficult to believe that the JAMB/Post UTME result combination is even used.

How to Calculate Cutoff Marks for All Schools Using JAMB Point System

There are processes involved in this scoring:

(1) Candidates who submit only one o’level result which contains his/her relevant subjects already will be allotted 10 points. The exam could be NECO, WASSCE, November/December WASSCE etc, but any candidate who has two sittings only gets 2 points. So this means that candidates with only one result are at an advantage here with 8 points.

(2) O’ Level grades has it’s equivalent grade points as; A (A1) = 6 marks, B (B1, B2, B3) = 4 marks, C (C4, C5, C6) = 3 marks, so the better the candidates’ grades, the better his or her chances of securing admission.

(3) UTME scores, where each score range has its equivalent point can be summarized thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points.

(4) Each category would contain five JAMB results per point added. Eg. a candidate with 180-185 gets 20 points, while a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points.

How To Calculate The Relevant Cutoff Marks,  Grades/Score For Admission

Sittings: Assuming you have all your required O’level subjects in one sitting, you already have 10 marks.

O’Level: Let’s say you have 1A, 5Bs and 3Cs in your O’level result (WAEC/ NECO/ GCE), then you have, (1×6) + (5×4) + (3×3) = 35 Points.

JAMB Score: Then, say you scored 250 in JAMB UTME, you get 33 Points (refer to number 3 above to see how we got this).

To get the total point, you sum everything together (i.e: Sittings + O’level + Jamb Score).

This implies that – 10 + 35 + 33 = 78 Points. If the cut-off mark for your course of choice in a particular school is below 70, then you will be admitted into that institution.


(i) Catchment and educationally less-developed state would still be used for admission into the nation’s tertiary institutions.

(ii) Merit admission contains 45 per cent of the total candidates for a particular course, Catchment contains 35 per cent and Education Less Developed Areas (ELDs) and staff lists contains the rest.

(iii) Cut off marks are released by the institutions each year in the form of points and sometimes marks.
