In today’s post, we would enlighten you more on what you need to know about JAMB UTME Cut-Off Marks For 2022/2023 Admission session. Keep reading my good friend.


According to the Management of Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has defined Cut-Off Mark as the minimum score or bench mark a candidate who is seeking for admission into any tertiary institutions in Nigeria such as Universities, Polytechnics, Monotechnic and College of Education must have in (JAMB UTME) before he or she will be qualified to participate in the Post UTME screening exercise conducted by his or her school. It should be noted that the (JAMB UTME ) Cut-Off Mark or point decided by JAMB is not the same as the Departmental or Institutional CUT-Off Mark set by the institution.

Example: If JAMB sets 150 as the cut off mark for admission into all Tertiary Universities and a candidate is applying to study (Medicine and Surgery) in the University of Calabar (UNICAL) and he or she scored 301 in JAMB UTME. The candidate has been given an automatic ticket to participate in the POST-UTME screening exercise of his or her school ,which is conducted by the school itself. This does not mean that the candidate will be admitted due to his or her high JAMB score ,but will have to participate in the POST-UTME screening exercise of it’s school. The exercises may be in form of an examination or an online screening , in our next post, we would tell you the differences between post-UTME Exams and post-UTME Online Screening.

Assuming the candidate scored 300 in the school POST-UTME screening exercise. This score will be added to his or her JAMB score (301) and slashed by 2 to give an average which is used for the Admission. That is 300+301= 601/2=300.5 as the average. If the Departmental Score for Medicine and Surgery is 300 which is decided by the department itself. Then, this candidate will be admitted into the University of Calabar (UNICAL) to study Medicine and Surgery based on his or her average score and not even the high JAMB nor POST-UTME score.

Also note that there is a vast difference between the Departmental Cut-Off Mark and the Institutional cut off mark. In our next post, SchoolDirectNg will enlighten you more on this.

Having know what JAMB Cut-Off Mark is , let’s get to know when JAMB will announce the Official Cut-Off Marks for 2022/2023 Admission processes. Keep reading my good friend.


The answer to this question above is NO !!!


According to the Minister of Education Mallam Adamu Adamu has approved Thursday 21st July 2022 for policy meeting where the modalities for the 2022 admissions would be decided. This means that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Cut off Marks for 2022 will be Announced on the 21st of July ,2022.

2020, the JAMB board decided in the policy meeting to set 150 for all Public and State Universities , 130 for all Polytechnics and 120 for Monotechnics and 100 for all Colleges of Education Nationwide.

2021, the board decided in the policy meeting that each institution should set their individual cut off marks, but should not go below 120 for Universities and 100 for Colleges of Education. This happened, due to the high rate of Mass failure during the UTME results as at 2021.

We hope to hear from JAMB for this year 2022 Cut-Off Mark come next month June, 2022. You can bookmark this page to stay updated when the Cut off marks are been announced for 2022.
