There are 182-degree awarding institutions in Nigeria, 10 of these said their minimum cut off mark is 200 and above, 11 institutions said theirs will remain at 190 and above.

About 51 institutions said their cut off mark is benched at 180 and above. Also 64 institutions’ cut off mark will be from 170 and above; 112 institutions said their cut off mark is pegged at 160 and above while 69 said their cut off mark is benched at 160 and below.

According to a spokeman in behalf of JAMB, Fabian Benjamin

“no uniform UTME minimum score for admission” as each institution determines and submits to JAMB its minimum UTME score “after having analysed the UTME performances of its applicants against its available quota.”

“There is a layer of misconceptions on what is generally described as uniform minimum national UTME score for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. For long, many candidates and some members of the general public have come under erroneous impression that there is a minimum national UTME score, which they also refer to as cut off point,” he said.

According to him, the UTME score is not the sole determinant of placement of candidates into tertiary institutions.

“The undue attention to the so-called national minimum UTME score (UTME cut off point) is a major source of failure of many ill-informed candidates who assumed that they have finally attained the benchmark having achieved the so-called minimum national score or cut off point for admission.”
